BT Sport subscribers through BT, EE or Plusnet can now access the full Discovery+ Entertainment and Sport package.
It’s the latest result of a deal between BT and Warner Bros Discovery (WBD), which has seen both broadcasters merge their sports channel business under a joint venture. The deal also promised improved access terms, giving BT’s customers better access to Warner Bros Discovery’s services.
What does this mean for eligible BT Sport subscribers?
The new arrangement gives BT Sport subscribers access to Eurosport in the interim. That’s before both channel brands are replaced by a joint brand and properly combined into one package.
Additionally, BT Sport customers will gain access to the full Discovery factual entertainment programme library, including programmes from all of its free and pay TV channels.
Eligibility / duration
The offer is available at no extra cost for as long as a subscriber keeps their BT Sport package through BT, Plusnet or EE, or until the Discovery+ Entertainment & Sport plan comes to an end. Discovery+ is ultimately due to be replaced in the coming years with a new combined streaming service from WBD.
By this point, the sports channels will have combined under a common name. They will then also be bundled together in one subscription service.
Workaround currently required for BT TV subscribers
BT TV customers who currently subscribe to BT Sport will need to find an alternative way to access Discovery+ to benefit from the promotion. Discovery+ hasn’t yet been launched on BT TV’s boxes. But Discovery+ is available on a wide variety of alternative devices.
- Eligible BT Sport subscribers can activate access to Discovery+ through a dedicated BT webpage.
Last month, Discovery channel returned to BT TV, with on-demand content from Discovery Channel now available on the BT Player
