Can I get BT Sport on Sky?

BT Sport vs Sky TV icon

I’m with Sky and watch a lot of football on Sky Sports. My friend says I should add on BT Sport because they have some of the biggest games, but how do I do that? Any help would be appreciated.

You absolutely can get BT Sport if you have Sky TV, but not through Sky directly. Instead, you have to add it to your package through BT itself. Read on and I'll explain how to go about it.

How to add BT Sport to Sky TV

Getting BT Sport on Sky is straightforward - here's how you go about it.

1. There's a page on BT's website that lets you add its sport service to Sky TV. Have your viewing card number handy, then click here to go there.

2. Next, you'll be presented with a few options. If you already use BT broadband, you can get BT Sport for a lower price so choose that option.

Alternatively, if you're all Sky, click that box instead. You'll also get to choose between standard and high definition.

3. Follow the instructions onscreen to sign up. You'll have to enter some details, including your Sky viewing card number, but it's all pretty straightforward.

Which Premier League games are on BT Sport?

I hope that helps Robbie. If you have any other questions about BT Sport, or Sky Sports, or just sport in general, check out these handy guides:
