What is BT Sport Lite? Get Premier League football for free

BT Sport Lite is a free, stripped down BT Sport package that gives you access Premier League and SPFL football plus Aviva Premiership rugby for free. 

You can get BT Sport Lite with any BT Broadband package, meaning you’re free to watch everything you’d normally get on the BT Sport 1 channel online or on your phone or tablet through the BT Sport iOS and Android apps. 

As the BT Sport apps will also work with Chromecast, this means you can effectively get the main BT Sport channel on your TV for as little as £4.50/month plus line rental. 

How can I get BT Sport Lite?

When you’re signing up for BT broadband services, whether that’s an entry-level ADSL deal or an up to 76Mbps FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) product, you’ll have the chance to add the BT Sport Pack as standard. 

On the BT products and services page, when you find the broadband package you want, you’ll normally end up on this page after clicking ‘select & personalise’.

Scroll down to the bottom and check the last box, marked ‘No Thanks’.

When you click through, you’ll see that you’ve got BT Sport Lite in your basket. 

As well as being able to watch BT Sport 1 online and through the mobile apps, there’s also an option to get BT Sport 1 on its own on your Sky TV box, if you want to. 

This is free for the first month, then £4/month after that. This is the regular standard definition BT Sport 1 channel, with no option to upgrade to HD.
