Statement from eir on the decision of Virgin Media to remove the eir Sport and BT Sport channels from their TV service

eir Sport has been in negotiations with Virgin Media to agree a new set of terms to ensure that the six channels of live sport that comprise the eir Sport pack will continue to be carried on the Virgin platform.

This includes live sport that cannot be seen elsewhere including 42 Premier League matches, live FA Cup games, every Champions League and Europa League game, European Rugby Champions Cup, MMA and every Formula One race. eir Sport remains available on all other pay TV platforms including eir Vision, Sky and Vodafone in Ireland.

Virgin Media has stated that the channels will remain on their TV service until the 31st July. This decision affects over 300,000 Virgin TV customers as the eir Sport 1 channel (formerly Setanta Ireland) will disappear from channel 105. This channel carries F1, GAA, FA Cup, Rep. of Ireland internationals and lots more live sport.

If Virgin Media want to carry the channels from August 1st eir Sport are available for further talks to ensure their customers don’t miss out.
