While most coverage of BT Sport focuses on the football elements and the occasional mention of rugby there is the small matter of 21 Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) tournaments that will be featured on the service. This week BT announced that Anne Keothavong who is retiring from professional tennis is to join the coverage team later in the year. There will also be Moto GP, Ultimate Fighting Championship and Red Bull Extreme Sports.
"We are particularly pleased to have signed up Anne for our tennis team. She’s straight off the court and I am sure that will give her fantastic insight into the mentality and performance of her fellow professionals on the tour. Anne has been at the forefront of women’s tennis in the UK for years and can give the viewers the benefit of her experience and knowledge of both her fellow British stars, like Heather Watson and Laura Robson, as well as the current top-ranking players."Simon Green, director of BT Sport
There is a gentle reminder that for those thinking of signing up to BT Sport and using their Sky satellite TV set-top box or via BT TV on BT Infinity, that the free HD option for a year (saving £36) only applies to orders made before the 1st August 2013. The current range of offers on BT Broadband products include £40 and £60 Sainsbury vouchers which end on the 31st July. For those BT customers not using BT TV or the Sky viewing option there will be online streaming via BTSport.com.
