Plusnet subscribers could gain special access to BT Sport services before the end of 2013, it has been revealed.
Jamie Ford, Chief Executive Officer at the broadband provider, explained that Plusnet is currently testing BT Sport on the Sky digital satellite platform.
And assuming there are no major hiccups, Plusnet customers could soon be able to tune in to all the action on BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2 and ESPN through a TV set-top box.
"We hope to make further announcements before the end of this year," Mr Ford stated.
His comments came after ISPreview.co.uk drew attention to pricing information on Plusnet's website for residential products.
This appears to show that customers can benefit from a cheaper BT Sport deal than those with Sky or Virgin Media.
According to the pricing information, Plusnet subscribers can pay just £5.99 per month for BT Sport in standard definition, compared to the normal price of £12 per month.
In addition, high definition BT Sport access is reported to be available for £7.49 per month, as opposed to the full price of £15 per month.
Plusnet and BT are sister companies, with Plusnet having been bought out by the BT Group in January 2007.
