BT Vision has stopped offering Setanta Sports to new customers, the IPTV service has announced.

The online TV service, which is operated by broadband provider BT, revealed yesterday (June 10th) that it suspended sales of the sports channel to new subscribers.

It made the move following the news that Setanta has stopped taking on new subscribers and is weighing up its financial situation.

BT Vision said: "We are in constant dialogue with Setanta and all other relevant parties to ensure we provide the best possible outcome for BT Vision customers."

A message posted on Setanta's website yesterday explained the company's take on the situation.

It read: "All our channels are still broadcasting across all platforms and our subscribers can continue to enjoy our programming.

"However, in the current circumstances, we have decided to suspend temporarily the acceptance of new subscriptions."

This comes in the same week that BT Vision's Chief Executive Dan Marks quit the group.

He will leave BT Vision at the end of this month and will be replaced by Marc Watson, who is currently Director of Content and Business Development at BT.
