Nowadays, a number of providers offer competitive deals on broadband, and if you’re also on the look-out for a sports package, there are plenty of special offers to pick from.
The thing is, there’s no real way of getting sports and broadband on their own - with most providers, you’ll have to take out a TV package too. And when it comes to choosing a sports package, the two providers who offer the most for your buck are BT Sport and Sky Sports.
Sky Sports and broadband deals
For years, Sky Sports had the monopoly on showing live Premier League football matches. Now, though, BT Sport share that right and starting in the 2019-2020 season, Amazon will also be showing some games too.
Still, Sky boast the lion’s share of Premier League matches, and ten other sports channels that showcase everything from rugby, Formula One, golf and WWE. Plus, it regularly offers great-value deals on TV and broadband packages too.
In terms of internet, Sky have fast and reliable packages to choose from with unlimited data and, as we say, they frequently offer competitive deals.
To find out which of Sky’s broadband packages will be right for you, take a look at our handy guide.
BT Sport and broadband deals
BT broadband is widely available across the country, and if you already own a BT package, you can watch BT Sport online, or get the app to catch your favourite sports, on the go.
Why go with BT? Well, BT Sport offer three dedicated sports channels along with BT Sport: ESPN, Box Nation, plus a bunch of Premier League football matches and exclusive coverage of the Champions League to boot.
Moreover, their broadband isn’t too shabby either, with average speeds of 36Mb,50Mb and 67Mb for its various packages.
Indeed, BT Sport definitely holds its own against Sky, and the best part is, you can also watch BT Sport through Sky TV. To find out how, click here to read our jargon-free guide to get started.
Virgin Media sport and broadband deals
If you’re currently a Virgin Media customer, or thinking of switching to them, you can get all of the BT Sport and Sky Sports channels by taking out one of their top TV packages. Problem is, this option isn’t cheap.
Virgin’s full-house bundle, for example, boasts over 230 channels - including BT Sport in 4k and ultra HD, fibre broadband and weekend calls. So, although they have a lot to offer, all of this content comes with a hefty price-tag.
On the flip-side, Virgin Media customers can catch up on Sky Sports on their laptop or tablet at no extra cost.
Plusnet sport and broadband deals
The great thing about Plusnet broadband is, it's relatively cheap in comparison with most providers. And, if you take out one of its basic packages and YouView TV, you'll get BT Lite where you can watch loads of Premier League football matches - for free.
Plusnet TV customers can also get BT Sport through the BT Sport app. Unfortunately, though, Plusnet don’t currently offer any way of watching Sky Sports.
