BT’s recently unveiled sports channels could be on their way to an Xbox near you, it has emerged, as the UK’s newest broadcaster bids to maximise take-up for its service.

BT, whose BT Sport offering comprises BT Sport 1 and 2 and ESPN, has disclosed it is negotiating with Microsoft to include the service on the soon-to-launch Xbox One and the current generation Xbox 360 console.

Although seemingly unwilling to reveal too much, a spokesperson for BT told TechRadar that the talks are in the offering, but that these will only take place “once BT Sport has launched later this summer”.

Assuming it happens, Xbox owners who sign up for the service are likely to be charged £15 per month, if they are non-BT broadband customers.

It’s assumed that BT broadband customers, who get BT Sport free but can only watch it on TV if they are also BT TV customers, will be able to use their Xbox in lieu of a YouView box.

Launched with a massive ad campaign earlier this month, BT Sport goes live in August and will broadcast live Premier League games, as well as the Aviva Premiership rugby, Moto GP and UFC bouts.
