Starting in July 2023, TNT Sports will carry forward the legacy and essence of BT Sport’s achievements in the past decade.
The new brand will be unveiled for the first time later this year, just before the commencement of the 2023/2024 football season. In the meantime, fans can still relish BT Sport across all its channels and platforms, as they currently do.
Ahead of the rebranding of BT Sport to TNT Sports in July, we present you with all the essential information. As part of this transition, the broadcaster of the Champions League will begin airing Premier League games starting in the upcoming season.
In a significant development for sports broadcasting, T Sport is poised to make way for TNT Sports in the upcoming season, marking the first time in ten years that a new broadcaster will showcase live Premier League matches.
This name change comes as a result of Warner Brothers Discovery’s acquisition of BT Sport in a deal worth potentially up to £650m. The merger brings together two prominent entities, as Warner Brothers Discovery also owns Eurosport. As part of this agreement, TNT Sports will assume control of BT Sport’s existing lineup, encompassing two seasons of Premier League football, four years of Champions League broadcasting rights, and coverage of Premiership Rugby and the UFC.
“Today is another important step towards the launch of a simpler and even more compelling offering for sports fans in the U.K & Ireland,” said Warner Bros Discovery Sport managing director Andrew Georgiou, who also confirmed that the broadcaster will compete in the next auction for Premier League TV rights.
The association of the TNT Sports name with high-quality live sports is already well-established in numerous countries worldwide. This indicates the extensive global reach and specialized knowledge that Warner Bros. Discovery brings to its collaboration with BT.
