BT Sport ESPN is a pay television channel that has broadcast in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland since August 3, 2009.
The chain arose on the occasion of the acquisition by ESPN of the television rights of the Premier League, representing the first foray of the American communication group in the United Kingdom.
The situation of the channel changed when, in 2012, ESPN was not able to win the auction for the rights of the English football league again. This led to the fact that, in 2015, BT reached an agreement to take ownership of the chain and maintain its affiliation with ESPN Internacional. On June 9 it was renamed BT Sport ESPN.
Fans in the UK and Republic of Ireland can watch the channel on cable, Virgin Media, satellite, Sky, IPTV, BT, Plusnet, TalkTalk TV and eir Vision. As for streaming over the Internet, it can be accessed from BT Sport Player, Virgin TV Anywhere and Now TV.
Currently, BT Sport ESPN's programming is made up of football matches from major competitions such as the Champions League, the Europa League, the Bundesliga in Germany, the Ligue 1 in France, the Premier League in England, or Serie A in Italy. In previous years, they have broadcast the FA Cup, the FA Women's Super League, the Scottish Premier League, the Russian Premier League, the MLS, the European Under-21 or the Copa América.
Despite being a channel practically dedicated to soccer today, BT Sport ESPN has also broadcast many other sports throughout its history:
Being a channel of American origin, it broadcast matches of the major American sports leagues such as the NFL, the MLB and the NHL.
On tennis, during 2012, BT Sport ESPN acquired the television rights to the Billie Jean King Cup and several ATP 250 and WTA International category tournaments.
