BT has revealed that all 351 matches from the UEFA Champions League and Europa League next season will be free for customers who take BT TV. 

Those customers will be able to receive the full BT Sport Pack for free – comprising BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, ESPN on BT Sport and the new BT Sport Europe channel, which launches on August 1 as the new home of top European football from the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

BT Broadband customers who choose to watch on their Sky service, via the BT Sport App or on BT Mobile will be able to add the BT Sport Pack for a small charge of £5 a month.

Gary Lineker, Jake Humphrey and Rio Ferdinand will front the live UEFA Champions League coverage.

“When we launched BT Sport we promised to make televised football far more accessible and affordable than it has been to date,” comments John Petter, chief executive of BT Consumer. “We have opened the market to millions of new customers and we want to build on that as BT Sport becomes the undisputed home of European football.”
