Press Release   •   Jun 19, 2017 11:52 BST

BT Business broadband customers now get the BT Sport app included in their broadband package, giving them access to all the best sporting action available to view on their tablet or smartphone. Business customers are now able to stream exclusive sport including all UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches, 42 Premier League games live, and The Emirates FA Cup.

In addition, customers can also enjoy Aviva Rugby Premiership matches, Australian cricket including the Ashes, MotoGP, UFC and the America’s Cup, and much more. App users are also able to view all four BT Sport channels and BoxNation and can stream it on two devices at the same time.

Mike Tomlinson, MD Small and Medium Enterprises at BT, said: “Our business broadband customers can now experience the best of BT’s live sporting action on two mobile devices while in the office, at home and on the move around the UK, thanks to our extensive fixed and mobile networks. In today’s world many of us blur the lines between work and personal hours so it’s great to be able to offer BT Sport for those moments of personal downtime either at home or in the office.”

As well as having access to high-speed fixed broadband and Wi-Fi connectivity at their business premises, BT Business customers also benefit from access to BT Wi-Fi hotspots, of which there are five million across the UK. They also have the option of purchasing BT’s 4G mobile plans, with its EE network offering speeds which are 50 per cent faster than with any other provider and the largest 4G footprint in the UK, giving seamless connectivity. Customers can access the app via their BT Business Hub within the office or via a BT Wi-Fi hot spot to avoid using their mobile data allowance.

This year 6.5 million people watched BT Sport’s coverage of the UEFA Champions League Final, including 2.1m across digital platforms, including the BT Sport app. As well as watching live action and on-demand catch-up, the BT Sport app is full of great clips, highlights and interviews from the sporting world.Customers can download the app from the Apple app store, Google Play or Microsoft app store, and then simply log in.

The BT Sport app is included in customers’ broadband plans for the duration of the contract for their personal use, but not for commercial or business broadcasting. The offer is available for all new SME customers of Broadband Premium, Infinity Unlimited and Infinity Premium, those who upgrade to fibre, and for customers who renew their contract.
