What is TNT Sports? | The Sun

BT SPORT and Eurosport are both being SCRAPPED in favour of a brand new name.

The two television networks are being mashed into one, in a joint venture from two massive broadcasters, BT Group and Warner Bros. Discovery.

The merger has been in the pipeline for quite a while and could mean more competition for the likes of Sky Sports and Dazn, especially as more users move towards single-subscription streaming platforms.

Fans of a certain generation will be sad to see the end of Eurosport, which for a long time came with the most basic satellite and cable subscriptions in the UK.
