Broadband provider BT is set to offer Sky Sports 1 and 2 as part of its TV packages later this year, it has been announced.

The company has revealed that the channels will be available on BT Vision in time for the start of the new Premier League season in August.

Through its new deal with communications infrastructure specialist Arqiva, BT will also ensure it has sufficient capacity on its digital TV platform to offer the premium sports channels.

Marc Watson, Chief Executive Officer of BT Vision, said its new partner has "a proven track record".

He added: "Offering Sky Sports 1 and 2 to our customers is clearly an important milestone for both BT and of course our customers."

BT recently agreed a deal with US cloud computing firm OnLive which could see it offer online gaming through its digital TV service.

The platform could be available to subscribers later this year.
