TNT Sports has arrived! Enjoy the best live action from the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, UFC and more on your new TNT Sports channels
By Chris Miller, Feature Writer
Have you heard? From 18 July, BT Sport has a new name. It will now be known as TNT Sports – but there’s no need to be concerned, or even to take any action. Just sit back and continue to enjoy all the superb live sport on the same Virgin TV channels.
That’s right, there’s nothing you have to do to continue watching your favourite sports on Virgin TV. You don’t need to call anyone or update anything. Just tune to the same channels you did previously.
And what action there is. August brings the start of the new Premier League season, with some of the best footballers in the world taking to the pitch for another thrilling campaign. Title holders Manchester City will face challenges from last year’s runners-up Arsenal, a resurgent Newcastle and an improving Manchester United. We expect Liverpool and Chelsea to come back strong from disappointing seasons, and we’re excited to find out if Aston Villa and Brighton can continue their upward trajectory.
But that’s not all, football fans! You can see even more of the best players in the world with TNT Sports’ full coverage of the UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League. Two of those three trophies went to English teams last season – take a bow, Man City and West Ham – and their domestic rivals will be desperate to emulate them. But they’ll find the cream of the Continent doing their darnedest to stop them… The season begins with the qualifying rounds in August.
You’ll also be able to see every major UFC event live on TNT Sports, while there’s also full coverage of the MotoGP season, boxing, Major League Baseball, rallying, badminton, Australian Rules football, hockey, squash and more. In the coming months, rugby union fans will also be able to enjoy top-class live action, with the Gallagher Premiership, Heineken Champions Cup and EPCR Challenge Cup on TNT Sports.
And every week TNT Sports will show every one of the WWE promotions – SmackDown, NXT and RAW – live so you never have to miss a moment of the outrageous entertainment.
