On-demand broadband TV service BT Vision has announced that is to resume sales of Setanta Sports to its customers.

The troubled Irish broadcaster was forced to suspend new subscriptions to its sports TV package last week because of severe financial difficulties.

However, BT revealed that it has held talks with Setanta, which is confident of securing enough investment from tycoon Len Blavatnik and Dutch media company Endemol to continue operating.

In line with other IPTV services, BT has reinstated the company's sports package on its website.

A statement from the company read: "We will continue to work closely with Setanta during the coming weeks and will provide any further updates to all our customers as appropriate."

This August, BT Vision will be showing English and Scottish Premier League (SPL) football, the US PGA Tour golf and UFC 101.

It also plans to bring its customers on-demand SPL matches via broadband, although this has not yet been confirmed.
