Sky and BT have announced an anticipated long term extension and expansion to an overall content cross-supply deal previously announced in the UK in December 2017.
As part of the new arrangement, Sky will become BT’s exclusive distribution partner in Ireland. Sky Ireland customers will therefore have their choice of the sports on Sky Sports and BT Sport all through a single Sky TV subscription, including 180 Premier League games, UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Heineken Champions Cup rugby. The partnership will come into effect in the summer of 2019 just in time for the 2019/20 Premier League football season.
