Re: BT Vision to gain WTA Rights In UK
Well, ESPN is carried on the Sky platform, so it's possible any new BT Vision sports channel will be too. All speculation though, they haven't even launched a channel yet, but with their English Premier League (EPL) rights starting from the 2013/14 season, they'll probably be doing so soon. If that EPL deal is any indicator, they've got lots of cash to throw at sports bodies. Plus, a channel dedicated to sport is going to need a lot more than just 38 EPL matches (and Premiership Rugby)to fill all those hours of airtime. Tennis would be a good fit. But would the tennis get shoved aside for thrillers like Reading vs Wigan?
However, the lack of any stated source so far means I'm keeping my fingers off the panic-button. It's going to be a long autumn of rumors for UK (& Irish) tennis fans.
