BT Sport set for October price hike

BT Sport secured the sole rights to show MotoGP in the UK last year

BT has just announced they will increase the price of BT Sport subscriptions for those without BT Broadband from October 2014.

The price will jump from £12 per month to £13.50 for customers already using the service via Sky or Virgin customers without the XL TV package. As announced in May, the service will continue to be free to BT Broadband customers throughout 2015.

The price increase will see customers paying £18 extra per 12 month subscription.

The firm claim that in return for the price hike, they’ll be bringing you ‘even more of the best in unmissable live sporting action, with Europe’s new elite rugby competition joining Premier League matches’.

BT Sport bagged the sole UK TV rights to air the MotoGP championship live at the start of this season, with the only alternative being a 50 minute highlights programme on ITV4 on the Monday evening following a race weekend.
