Bt Sport and Sky Sports have linked up to provide a new package to allow fans to watch the Premier League and Champions League for less.

The two broadcasters own the majority of the TV rights in England to show top-flight matches, with the Champions League being shown on BT Sport.

Now, they have come together to produce an incredible deal called the Big Sport package that gives fans the chance to watch all 11 Sky Sports channels through NOW TV as well as BT Sport’s four channels.

Costing £40 per month, the Big Sport package allows fans to watch the Premier League, Champions League and much more including Formula 1 and the golf majors.

There’s also the Sport package, which costs £15 per month and includes access to the four BT Sport channels.

There are five BT deals to choose from in total, including ones costing £10 and £20 a month and the £60 VIP deal, which features Sky’s other entertainment and sport channels, including HD ones.

Customers can also change their package on a month-to-month basis.

Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s consumer division, said, per Pocket-lint: "Our new range of TV packs bring together the best premium services, fully loaded with a wide range of award-winning shows, the best live sports in stunning 4K and the latest must-see films - all with the flexibility to change packs every month - with quick and easy search to find what you want to watch."

"With Now TV's range of passes, BT TV customers will be able to enjoy our latest award-winning shows, blockbuster movies and top quality sports content with complete flexibility, so that customers can pay for exactly what they want."

BT Sport and Sky Sports have produced an absolute game-changer.
