Virgin Media and Setanta Sports offer 'free' sports channels – and that includes the Premier League

Digital set-top boxes

Football is still the battleground for pay TV in the UK, with the latest deal offering ‘free’ sports channels if you sign up with Virgin Media.

It’s a joint offer between Virgin Media and Setanta Sports, throwing in the sport as part of Virgin Media’s XL basic TV package – priced from £38.50. If you do, you get live coverage from over 250 ‘showcase events’ a year, including Barclays Premier League, Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier League, US PGA Tour golf, European League football and rugby and horse racing from around the country.

Virgin reckons that’s a saving of £110 against a similar package from Sky, but you’ll need to look at the fineprint to see if that’s really the case. You can sign up from today at the Virgin Media website
