New and existing Virgin Media Ireland subscribers will now be able to add an extra bundle of premium sports channels.
The new Sports Extra bundle includes Premier Sports 1 and 2, plus BT Sport 1, 2, 3 and 4 (the former BT Sports ESPN channel).
Also, new customers adding Sky Sports or existing Virgin Media customers currently on the Sky Sports bundle will also gain access to Sky Sports F1 for no additional cost.
For the die-hard sports fans, Virgin Media Ireland are also creating the ultimate must-have sports package with ‘Sky Sports & Sky Sports Extra’ which offers both BT Sport and Premier Sports along with Sky Sports, all for half price for 6 months.
Paul Higgins, Vice President of Commercial, Virgin Media Ireland said:
“We have listened to our customers, and we know they enjoy premium live sport, so we are delighted to give them even more options by adding additional sports channels to our offering to ensure they don’t miss any of the important moments. With the new soccer season kicking off soon, Irish fans now have a great option with 6 months half price for Sky Sports & Sports Extra so they’ll never miss a game.
Our customers are telling us that they really enjoy TV 360, our latest and best ever TV service so the introduction of new Sports channels adds to what is already a premium content schedule including our new exclusive first look channel Virgin Media More, offering the best of ground-breaking Irish and International drama, sport and documentaries.”
