"Lowered prices" So are they going to give me money? As I get BT Sport for free... As far as I know they're going to charge for the new channel. Another point, they might say 4K, but the matches won't be broadcast in 4K, it'll just get upscaled, as at the moment matches are only shot in 720p or 1080i (but not 1080p) Maybe the odd game will be shot in 4K, but only 1 or 2 matches in the next year.

Edit: Yep I was correct, they want me to pay £5 for this "new" channel, so I'm not sure how that's cheaper than free :joy:

But you get a lot more sport for your money, a lot more. I pay a lot as it is for BT Broadband, which is meant to include the BT sports package free, but it's ok because they've added a "new" channel which they didn't need to do.
