The great news is there’s now plenty of choice out there, with lots of TV providers offering Sport channels and a number of streaming options too. But which is the best overall package for Sport? Sometimes it’s hard to tell, so we’ve run through the main options and what you might want to consider before choosing a sport package for your TV.
This sounds really obvious, but we know from our research that many families are paying more than they need to, and could save up to £450 a year if they switched their TV and broadband.
But in order to get the best deal, you need to be willing to switch. If you’ve just started a new contract, or don’t want to leave your current provider, you probably won’t benefit.
In theory, if you pick the exact packages you want when you need them, you can save the most money and have the best flexibility. In fact, that’s exactly what this site will allow you to do. Click here to access our package finder, where you can choose the precise channels/sports you want to watch, and we’ll find you the best deals around.
However, we know that for many busy households, they’d rather go for an all-inclusive bundle, where everything comes from 1 provider with one monthly bill. If that’s what you’d prefer, and you want to get the best TV package will all the sport included, read on.
We’ve compared the main TV providers ‘all-in’ packages including Sport channels, showing you how they differ, what you need to consider and the likely pricing. If you’ve got any comments or questions, please ask.

Well, some of them are. As part of a negotiated agreement with the broadcasters, the Premier League has announced that all of the 92 remaining games will be broadcast live.
Of the remaining games, they will be split across the existing rights holders, Sky Sports (64), BT Sport (20), Amazon Prime Video (4) and BBC Sport (4).
And yes, this means that the BBC will for the first time in ages have some live games, covering 4 fixtures completely free to air (woohoo!)
Well, it gets interesting here. Sky have said that they will show 25 of their 64 games free to customers. We believe this means they’ll be on Sky Sports Mix, a channel available to all Sky TV subscribers (whether you pay extra for Sky Sports or not). They may also show them on Sky One, which would open up the games to Virgin Media, BT and Talk Talk customers too.
And it’s not just the ‘dull’ games that Sky are opening up. The first game they’ll be offering to all subscribers is Everton v Liverpool on the opening weekend of June 19-21st.
Not all of the fixtures and timings have been announced yet, but we know that the first games will be those games in hand, starting with Man City vs Arsenal and Aston Villa vs Sheffield United, both on the 17th June.
Well, that’s pretty much why our site exists. The games are across 3 Pay TV providers as well as free to air on the BBC, so it’s complicated to work out what sort of package you need and how much you should pay, so we’ve done the hard work for you.
It’s completely free to use – if you just enter ‘premier league’ into our programme and channel finder, we’ll find the best deal available in your area. Try it out here
