Ofcom deal means lower prices for Sky Sports 1 and 2 on BT Vision in time for the 2010-2011 football season

BT and Sky have signed a deal to allow BT Vision customers to watch Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 2.

They'll be able to view the channels from August 1st, in time for the new football season.

Earllier this year, Ofcom ruled that Sky would have to cut the price it charged rivals such as BT and Virgin Media to show its premium sports channels.

BT is yet to unveil its exact pricing, but in the past it has indicated it would charge around £15 a month for Sky Sports 1.
