WWE UK: WWE UK broadcaster BT Sport merging with Warner Bros. Discovery


Posted on 5/13/122 by Colin Vassallo



WWE’s United Kingdom broadcaster BT Sport is
joining Warner Bros. Discovery, AEW’s TV
home in the United States, to create a new
joint premium sport offering venture in the
UK and Ireland. As part of the deal, BT
Sport will transfer the operating businesses
to Warner Bros. Discovery.

BT Sport took over the WWE television rights
in the region from Sky Sports in January
2020, ending WWE’s and Sky’s 30-year
relationship.

Meanwhile, Discovery took over WarnerMedia
to create the new merged company, a company
which also includes TNT and TBS, where AEW
airs in the U.S.

While initially BT Sport and Eurosport will
continue to operate as different brands, the
two will be brought together under a single
brand in the future.
