Hotels to get BT Sport from just £77 a month plus two months free
Hotels can now get all three BT Sport TV channels for their bar from just £77 a month. This means that a 65 bed hotel will be able to save 83 per cent per annum when compared to Sky Sports. If they sign up before Monday 24th November, they can get two months viewing for free. For those hotels wishing to add the service to their rooms, all three BT Sport channels can be added for an incremental £3 per room per month.
In a typical week on BT Sport, hotels can offer customers live domestic football action from the Barclays Premier League, Scottish Premiership and Championship. Plus European football from the Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and the UEFA Europa League, whilst for those interested in Rugby, BT Sport will bring you exclusive Aviva Premiership Rugby together with the top pick matches from the new European Rugby Champions Cup. And if it isn’t football or rugby, BT Sport offers MotoGPTM, NBA, Major League Soccer in the US, UFC and WTA tennis.
Bruce Cuthbert, director of Commercial Customers, BT Sport, said: “Hoteliers tell us that they are keen to offer live sport to guests and visitors but are often put off by the sky high costs associated with other suppliers. We are delighted to be giving hotels the chance to show the widest range of top-flight football on TV, plus first class Rugby, Motorsport and American Sport - all at a price that’s affordable. We will even supply a second viewing card free of charge if they want to show sport in a secondary bar, in-house gym or conferencing facility.”
BT Sport offers a flexible viewing model, allowing hotel operators the choice of only paying for the service where they want to show it. If hotels just want to show BT Sport in their bar areas they can. A 65 room hotel pays just £134 per month for a hotel bar subscription with BT Sport, whereas the price payable for Sky Sports on Sky’s Hotel Bar Only Agreement is £803 per month. That’s an annual saving in the hotel bar with BT Sport of £8,028. Plus sign up to BT Sport before November 24, 2014 and get the first two months free which includes standard installation for a hotel bar at no extra charge.
Sign up to BT Sport before November 24, 2014, and hotels will be able to get the BT Sport Pack which includes, at no extra charge, standard installation for a hotel bar and get it free for the first two months.
