TNT Sports is the new identity of BT Sport. With Eurosport merging with the former at a later date, it’ll be home to some of the most exciting sporting events throughout the year, whether it’s the upcoming Premier League season, Europa League, Champions League, MotoGP, Rugby Union, tennis Grand Slams, cycling Grand Tours, UFC, WWE, boxing, winter sports, or the next Summer Olympics.

The good news is if you previously had BT Sport added to your Sky Q contract, you don’t have to do anything. In fact, you should already have access to the TNT Sports channels.

Sky will continue to bill you for the sports channels, though your future bills will refer them to TNT Sports rather than BT Sport. Simply tune in to the following channel numbers, which remain the same as before for now:

  • TNT Sports 1: 413 (HD)
  • TNT Sports 2: 414 (HD)
  • TNT Sports 3: 417 (HD)
  • TNT Sports 4: 423 (HD)
  • TNT Sports Ultimate: 493 (4K)

Of course, Sky and other pay-TV providers like BT and Virgin Media will start offering revised plans combining TNT Sports and Eurosport in due time. Until then, Eurosport 1 (410, HD) and Eurosport 2 (411, HD) remain separate channels.

New subscribers can get the TNT Sports package directly via BT. However, it’s easier to add it through Sky for billing convenience. With your Sky Q box connected to the internet, simply follow these steps:

  • Press the Home button on your Sky Q remote.
  • Scroll down the options and highlight My Sky, then select Sky Shop.

You may also go to and sign in with your Sky account credentials to grab the TNT Sports pack at a discounted price, provided you’re eligible.

If you have a Sky Q Multiscreen subscription, the TNT Sports channels will be accessible on your additional Sky Q and Sky Q Mini boxes as well.

Those with a Sky Q 4K box, a compatible UHD television, and the Sky Ultra HD add-on can also tune in to TNT Sports Ultimate, which airs select sporting events in 4K with HDR and Dolby Atmos.

Note if you subscribe to TNT Sports through Sky Q while also having a subscription with BT for the channels, you can request Sky to delay activating your subscription by a month so you don’t get billed twice. It gives you enough time to cancel your TNT Sports subscription with BT and transfer your billing to Sky.
