In the not too distant past, BT were asking customers how they accessed their channels eg TV, phone, tablet, laptop etc and were sounding out what customers thought about the idea of them dropping linear broadcasts in favour of streaming only.
People were also asked how much they were currently paying for their BT channels and how much they would be prepared to pay for a streaming only service.
I assumed that this was a cost cutting idea should they not find a full or part buyer for their channels, which they don't appear to have done.

Possible changes to the BT Sport channels?
I was told earlier today that a location of one of Virgin's Channel Update slate has been updated with codes for BT subscription packages. Currently an actual slate isn't visible but it does carry EPG information "Channel No Longer Available". Beware that the EPG data may be out of date and from a previous occasion when the slate was used. Virgin usually use these slates when more than one channel is involved. It is possible that the slate will eventually show nothing more than a change of channel numbers. Does anyone know of any imminent changes to the BT Sport channels on Virgin?
Could BT Sport be leaving Virgin and going streaming only??
