Sky Sports channels were once solely available to Sky TV customers. That’s no longer the case. You can now get Sky Sports programming if you’re a BT, TalkTalk or Virgin Media broadband customer, too, giving fans unprecedented levels of choice.
BT offers Sky Sports 1 and 2 and ESPN through its BT TV service, lowering the cost of Sky Sports.
It is, however, worth noting that Sky Sports channels are only available in areas covered by BT's Infinity fibre broadband service, and you need to have a BT Infinity package to get these channels.

Virgin Media offers the full complement of Sky Sports channels and their HD versions, plus ESPN.
To watch standard Sky Sports channels with Virgin Media you’ll require a TiVo set-top box, which comes in 500GB or 1TB storage options.
The price Virgin Media customers pay for Sky Sports 1 and 2 depends which TV package they are on. Virgin Media TV subscribers can also choose to sign up to the Sky Sports Collection. This gets them Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 2, Sky Sports 3, Sky Sports 4 and Sky's dedicated F1 channel. Prices once again depend on the size of Virgin Media TV package that customers take.
