BT Vision pulls Setanta sales again

Saturday, June 20 2009,

By James Welsh


Rex Features

BT Vision has pulled sales of Setanta Sports for the second time this month after the Irish sports broadcaster lost its Premier League TV rights.

The Premier League said that Setanta's package of 46 matches in the 2009-10 season would be shopped to other broadcasters after a payment of 30m failed to materialise. A rescue bid led by Len Blavatnik's Access Industries has fallen through, leaving Setanta's board to "consider its options over the weekend".

In a statement, BT Vision said: "Following the removal of their Premier League rights for 2009-10, we have suspended further sales of Setanta Sports to BT Vision customers.

"The channel is still broadcasting and we are in on-going dialogue with Setanta and other relevant parties as the situation develops.
"Due to the on-going uncertainty surrounding the broadcaster we have already reviewed our offers to decide what we can provide BT Vision customers who are receiving Setanta Sports within a Bronze, Silver or Gold Value Pack or as a paid service in the event it ceases broadcasting.

"There is no need for you to call in. We will be in direct contact with all affected customers within a few days of the channel ceasing should this happen.

"In the meantime please ensure you retain your BT Vision/Setanta Viewing Card.
"No other aspect of the BT Vision service is affected."
