Boxnation channel will now be part of the BT Sport package. Seems a disaster for Hearn. Almost feels like the old WWF vs WCW wars. The biggest winners are going to be the Fury's, Haye's, Khan's, Frampton's, Eubank Jr's of the world. BT Sport will badly want star power like that, and they will be able to float from Sky to BT Sport whoever pays them the most money.

This is great for fans anyway. Means we will get all of Boxnation's international content on BT Sport now.

Hopefully this means the end of sh*t PPV's too. As it should make it harder to get away with putting on any old tosh and people lapping it up.

Frank Warren and BoxNation have signed a multi-year deal with BT Sport that will see the Hall of Fame promoter create 20 premium live boxing events each year to be simulcast on both channels.

The ground-breaking deal will see a further ten events per year, including top tier pay-per-view events and other high-quality domestic shows, broadcast exclusively on BoxNation.

You will. It will be part of BT Sports package from early 2017 (where apparently early is not January).

Obviously because they will want guys like Fury and Haye on board. It might mean Eddie has to up his game though. Can you really put on Joshua vs a nobody if BT are putting on Fury vs Wilder around the same time etc.

It should be good for all boxing/sport fans no doubt about it

Warrington looks the first to be moving. Has left Matchroom. Tyrone Nurse has already joined Frank Warren.

Have any non boxnation subscribers(who have bt sports through sky) got the channel yet? I haven't and have got no reply from emails sent to either bt or boxnation. Not sure what's going on here
Report wisewords January 12, 2017 8:31 PM GMT
Nope, I haven't. I get BT Sport through Sky because I'm a BT Broadband customer, and BoxNation is still locked for me. I haven't had any e-mails about the subject either.
