In The Guardian, BT Vision chief executive Marc Watson said that the broadcaster is keeping its options open after securing the rights to 38 matches in last month’s broadcast rights auction.
When asked if BT Vision may not be offering its packages to Sky subscribers, Watson said: “That is an option, but it is early days, we are considering all options.
“Having games like these gives you options. We have had a lot of calls in the last few weeks. My instinctive view is to look to make it widely available, but we will see.
“We’d have taken more games at the right price. For the first time in history the Premier League sold the first-pick matches, the crown jewels, to someone other than Sky.
“We had a plan and we stuck to the plan. As a company we were pretty calm. We were never panicking and were confident in what we were going to do. We understood the risks and benefits and approached it with calm confidence – that is not to say arrogance.”
A rumour is also suggesting that BT Vision is looking to poach Gary Lineker from BBC for its Premier League coverage.
