Just like Sky TV, BT Sport viewers won’t be charged for the full month. Since the football restarts on June 17, BT says it will be “offering customers a further bill credit to the value of 50 percent of their BT Sport monthly subscription”. The same is true for those who opted to donate their subscription fee to the NHS. An extra 50 percent will be donated to NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal this month.
If you haven’t already applied for a bill credit from BT, but still want to take advantage of the 50 percent credit in June, BT will let you apply from June 1, 2020 on its support pages.
Things are a little different if you subscribe to BT Sport via your Sky TV box. In that case, Sky will apply the same rule as its Sky Sports channels. That’s to say, customers will not be charged “for any days before 19 June 2020”.
In a statement about the restart, BT told Express.co.uk, “We’re delighted to see the provisional plan to restart the Premier League next month. Should all proceed safely, we look forward to broadcasting 20 Premier League games to our BT Sport customers. With the return of live Bundesliga, UFC and now the Premier League in June, we can confirm that as a gesture of goodwill we will also be offering customers a further bill credit to the value of 50 percent of their BT Sport monthly subscription.”
