It’s a fun time to be a football fan, with a number of exciting Premier League games, along with the UEFA Champions League, Europa League, Europa Conference League, Ligue 1, and Serie A slated over the coming months. You can enjoy all these football competitions and several other sports on TNT Sports alone.
We don’t blame if you haven’t kept up with the news around TNT Sports recently. Last year, BT Group formed a joint venture with Warner Bros. Discovery, resulting in the recent rebranding of BT Sport as TNT Sports. It’s also to subsume WBD’s Eurosport UK channels by early 2026.
For pay-TV customers, only the channel name changes, but there are plenty of notable changes on the streaming side. If you’ve been wondering where and how to watch TNT Sports on Sony Smart TV, you’ve found yourself at the right place. Continue reading as we unpack all the details.
Discovery+ is Now Streaming TNT Sports
Warner Bros. Discovery-owned Discovery+, one of the UK’s most popular video-on-demand apps that provide factual, lifestyle, true crime, and reality programming and is the streaming home of Eurosport, is now hosting TNT Sports.
Discovery+ has been offering live sports content from Eurosport for a while now with their Entertainment & Sport subscription plan. The portfolio only gets bigger with TNT Sports tagging up, though the channel comes at a higher cost under a third separate subscription tier.
Those who’ve been a BT Sport Monthly Pass customer or getting the BT Sport channels through their BT or Sky subscription should already have access to this premium Discovery+ tier bundling TNT Sports and Eurosport. Eligible users have been receiving emails from their providers about it, but feel free to contact yours for more information.
How to Watch TNT Sports on Sony Smart TV?
