BT Sport is rebranding its five sports channels ahead of the new football Season.
The existing BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport Europe, BT Sport Ultra HD and BT Sport ESPN HD will be replaced by BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport 3, BT Sport 4K UHD and BT Sport ESPN HD.
The introduction of BT Sport Europe – used as a vehicle for BT’s Champions League and Europa League coverage caused controversy when the telco brought in a £5 charge and invited subscribers to downgrade.
