The Telegraph did reach out to BT Sport for a comment on the matter but BT Sport declined. It was noted within the report that BT Sport is constantly growing their audience and reaching new highs by way of the Champions League. 

Earlier this month, All Elite Wrestling agreed to a deal with ITV Box Office to air their Double Or Nothing pay-per-view on May 25th from Las Vegas, Nevada. ITV was also home to World Of Sport which wrapped up their weekly show towards the end of 2018 which was followed by a live event tour to kick off 2019. While on the topic of All Elite Wrestling, it was announced that the company's weekly show this Fall will be featured on TNT and for more information about that story, click here.
