    Where will BT Sport be available?
    We intend to make the BT Sport channel available on a variety of platforms, so that it's widely available and easy to sign up to.

    It's going to be available on satellite, the BT Vision platform (and YouView) via BT's fibre broadband, and in pubs and clubs. We don't know if it will be available over cable, but we are talking to Virgin Media about this.

    How will it be available on Sky?
    We are setting up channels on the Sky platform, so that Sky customers will be easily able to receive BT Sport in standard and high definition, by calling us. You therefore won't buy the channel from Sky, but directly from BT.

    Will Sky sell it on BT's behalf?
    No, that is unlikely. BT will sell BT Sport directly to customers. The channel will feature on the Sky TV guide, but you'll have to call a number and speak directly to BT to get the channel.

    How much will you charge for the BT Sport channel?
    We will reveal more about pricing closer to launch. Leave us your details at www.btsport.com and follow us on Twitter to be the first to know.

    How will Freeview customers be able to get BT Sport?

    We will reveal more details closer to launch.

    What if I'm not in a BT Infinity fibre area and don't have satellite?
    We have plans to distribute the channel as widely as possible and we will be making more announcements closer to launch.

    When will BT Sport be available on YouView?
    BT Sport will be available on YouView from BT in summer 2013.

    Will I need a new box?
    No, it is purely a software download.

    Will BT Sport be available on Virgin Media?
    We will offer BT Sport on Virgin Media if it makes commercial sense to do so.
    It's unlikely that BT will sell the channel directly to customers as this is not the way Virgin Media operates.

    Is there any chance that some of BT's live Premier League games will be shown on free-to-air TV?
    That's not part of the plan.

    What's BT's strategy for showing the games in pubs and clubs?
    We will be offering the same great BT Sport TV channels we offer to residential customers to pubs, clubs, hotels and betting shops across the UK. We will reveal details closer to the launch, but we are talking to people across the industry to understand how to serve their needs and bring BT Sport to as many venues as possible.

    Does BT intend to distribute the BT Sport channel on any other platform?
    We will look at platforms that make commercial sense for BT.

    Will all pricing be subscription-based or will BT offer pay-per-view for individual games?
    We will reveal details closer to the launch.

    Will customers be able to take the BT Sport channel on monthly terms, like Sky Sports from BT?
    We will say more about terms and conditions closer to launch.

    What is the best way for non-BT customers to get the BT Sport channel?
    On satellite if you're a Sky customer, or have a Sky box and satellite.

    Maybe they will go to Sky Sports, and its the reason Sky Sports dumped CW and UCMMA, coz UFC like exclusive deals.

    Or maybe you're wrong.
