TNT SPORTS LAUNCHES IN THE UK, REPLACING BT SPORT

TNT Sports is officially the new name of BT Sport, having launched in the UK and Republic of Ireland today (Tuesday 18th July).



BT explain: "Featuring a new and contemporary brand, an outstanding new line-up of talent, an enhanced value proposition for customers and flexible ways to purchase and watch, TNT Sports marks the start of a new relationship with sports fans.


The streaming home for TNT Sports in the UK is discovery+, where fans can enjoy a subscription that includes TNT Sports, Eurosport and entertainment in one destination.


At launch, TNT Sports presents the premium live sports rights previously carried by BT Sport, including the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Europa Conference League, Gallagher Premiership Rugby, Heineken Champions Cup, EPCR Challenge Cup, MotoGP, cricket, UFC, boxing and WWE."

Andrew Georgiou, president and managing director of Warner Bros. Discovery Sports Europe, said: "BT Sport has a lot of great talent, and by and large, most of the folks at BT Sport are coming across with us...


"But we also had the opportunity to look at some new talent, which I think is true to the brand value that we have created for ourselves, that accessibility, that humour that fun, that irreverence and [being] relatable to the fans is something that we really look for...



He continued: "No surprise, Laura Woods is joining our line-up. But we're also have some other new talent joining our line-up on the football side as well, like Ally McCoist, which we think is huge. We have Jules Breach, who is part of our line-up, but moving into a new role."


TNT Sports is available now.
