Round one to Sky in battle with BT

Communications regulator Ofcom dealt a blow to BT yesterday, ruling that it is not ready to force Sky to allow its sports channels to be shown on BT’s new TV service. The decision came on the day that BT launched its new TV sports channel, BT Sport, with presenter Jake Humphrey leading the way last night. The decision, which means that subscribers to BT’s service will not be able to use it to view the majority of Premier League football, is ongoing, with Ofcom saying it is continuing its investigation.
