On July 2023, TNT Sports started airing in the UK and Ireland instead of BT Sport, marking the most significant shift in sports broadcasting in the last decade of English television. This BT-Discovery venture aims to be the ultimate place for fans to enjoy their favourite sports.
With a fresh, modern brand, a fantastic new team of on-screen talents, more programming for viewers, and easier ways to subscribe and watch, TNT Sports is just the beginning of a new connection with sports fanatics.
TNT Sports also retains the same coverage rights as BT Sport. It includes top-tier events like the Premier League, UEFA Champions, Europa League, Conference League, Premiership Rugby, EPCR Challenge Cup, and the Champions Cup, on top of MotoGP, cricket, boxing, UFC, WWE, and more.
The best part is you can subscribe to TNT Sports and catch the year’s most exciting sports action with EE, one of the UK’s largest wireless carriers. If you’re an EE mobile customer, this guide is for you. Here’s everything you need to know regarding TNT Sports on EE.

How Much Does TNT Sports on EE Cost?
The TNT Sports on Discovery+ add-on costs £20 per month. As mentioned above, it isn’t limited to use only on your phone or tablet, as you can also log in with your Discovery+ ID and password on connected TV devices.
When you subscribe to TNT Sports via EE, they’ll add the subscription cost under your monthly mobile bill’s “Add-ons” section. Note EE won’t bill you until you’ve finished authenticating your Discovery+ account.
Also, If you add the TNT Sports package in the middle of your monthly billing cycle, EE will only bill you for the days left till the next billing date for the first month. For those getting it as part of an Inclusive Extra but are already paying for Discovery+ Premium, EE will override and replace it with their add-on version.
What Happened to BT Sport on EE?
If you haven’t followed the broadcasting world’s changes, it’s okay – you might not have noticed that BT Sport has undergone some changes.
It’s because of BT and Warner Bros Discovery’s new joint venture to bring BT Sport and Eurosport brands together under a new name. While Eurosport remains separate at the time of writing, it’ll eventually become a part of TNT Sports.
With that said, BT Sport and TNT Sports are essentially the same. The latter continues to present the same lineup of sports programming its predecessor previously carried, though there have been some changes in new presenters for studio shows.
As for those paying for BT Sports on EE prior to July 18, 2023, you should already have upgraded access to TNT Sports via Discovery+ Premium, with the only change being the add-on name in your monthly EE mobile bills.
Head to bt.com/sport/discovery-plus from your device and follow the on-screen prompts to verify and activate Discovery+ with your BT ID email and password.
