Virgin Media customer get BT for free above a certain tier.

me personally I’d not need sky sports if this happened as I’d have WWE, UFC, Champs League, Europa League and plenty of Scottish/English league on BT. And started using NFL game pass this year so didn’t even need Sky for that either.

would save me 28quid a month.

Year after. 2020.

Somehow I'm not that surprised at this development with BT Sport. At one point WWE were a great option for Sky to plug holes in channels when they had just three; now that they've moved into a 'channel per sport' option and (it seems) they're planning to keep up the NFL deal, I think Action and Arena can be easily filled with plenty of other stuff that probably rates very similarly to censored repeats of Raw and Smackdown.

Thing with the NFL is, the GamePass is relatively cheap if that’s all you’re into. NBA is extortionate because of the number of games/length of season. But my nfl on costs £35 a quarter with no game blackouts. 

I’m surprised Sky aren’t trying to hold onto WWE. While the live showings don’t garner good viewers, the product as a whole surely is very well-watched. The bigger picture for Sky is they won’t have Game of Thrones on atlantic anymore which was also probably a huge game changer for them with the exclusivity. Almost all of their in house produced stuff across the whole network is garbage (except League of their Own & soccer Am)

There will also be people like me that despite being prime age for this sort of thing, I'm a bit hopeless with technology and what have you and I just want my TV on my TV. IE not streaming, not having several different subscriptions to get all I have now, not having to use a console to access, or 'cast' it to the TV. I'm still not even sure what that means nevermind able to do it.

BT is a TV channel not a streaming channel.

I can only guess that BT put in a ridiculous bid for WWE that even Sky refused to pay like with the Champions League. BT Sport is pretty good in that you can get legal access to it at a relatively low price if you’re with BT Internet, Plusnet or EE. You can use their App on certain Smart TVs and get everything they show in HD or you can use it with Chromecast or Apple TV. I think they’re even working on making the App 4K. With Plusnet in particular, I think it’s currently an extra £5 a month. It’s actually a lot cheaper than Sky if you get it that way but I’ll be honest, Sky’s Premier League football coverage is far better.

If BT decide to put full WWE shows on demand on their App then that’ll be pretty decent for the fans. If however they’ll expect you to pay extra for a set top box to record the shows then I won’t be impressed.
