BT Vision’s sport portfolio could take in a third channel soon, rumours suggest.

The provider has already announced two channels, namely BT Sports 1 and 2, which will broadcast Premier League football and top-flight rugby, both of which it secured rights to earlier this year.

And according to the Financial Times, they could be joined by a third soon.

It’s not clear what has necessitated the need for an additional channel. However, last week Marc Watson, head of BT Vision, confirmed that the company will announce a deal for another high-profile sports event before Christmas.

Speculation indicates that this could be a Grand Slam tennis tournament, with interest in the game higher than it has been for some time following Andy Murray’s success in the US Open and Olympics.

BT is also known to be in negotiations to hire studio space in the Olympic Park in Stratford, as it becomes a fully fledged broadcaster.
