How to Cancel Your BT Sport on Sky in 3 Steps
If you're into sports, then BT Sport seems like the perfect way to watch all your favourite athletic events. But what if you need to save money or simply aren't interested in the current events on BT Sport anymore?
If you've decided it's time to cancel, then you can always do that on your own. DoNotPay can make the process of cancelling your BT Sport subscription less painful, however, especially if you hate breaking up with subscriptions.
What Are BT Sport’s Cancellation Policies?
BT Sports does allow customers to cancel, and furthermore, they make it fairly straightforward. That’s good, because there are plenty of people who simply feel like £29.99 a month is too costly, so they end up cancelling their subscription. Still, others find that their favourite sport is out of season, and they only want BT Sport for certain times of the year.
Whatever the reason, you can cancel your BT Sport subscription without having to write a 1,000-word essay on why it just isn't working anymore or dealing with a clingy customer rep who begs you not to go.

BT's working hours are from 8 am to 9 pm Monday through Friday. Saturday's hours are 8 am to 8 pm, and Sunday is 9 am to 6 pm.
If all else fails, you can always contact BT Sport through their social media accounts.
Cancelling Your BT Sport Subscription Within the Cooling-off Period
The UK Consumer Contracts Regulations look out for consumers. It essentially states that customers have a 14-day cooling-off period in which to decide if they like the service they have signed up for and wish to keep it, or if it's not for them, so they want to cancel.
According to the City of London, you have the right to cancel the service. This applies to BT Sport, but you may get hit with a cancellation fee, which we'll discuss next.
Does BT Sport Charge Any Cancellation Fees?
According to BT's community page, you are required to give 30 days' notice if you want to avoid an early cancellation fee.
SeanD, BT’s community manager stated, "You can cancel the agreement at any time, by giving us 30 days' notice, if we've changed the prices, the service or these terms and conditions, and this significantly disadvantages you then, you won't have to pay a fee for leaving early."
SeanD went on to clarify that if you are within the minimum term of your contract, you may have to pay a cancellation fee.
You will have to continue paying for the BT Sport package up until the 30 days are over, and then it's officially done.
Even though you could get a refund if you cancel within the 14-day grace period, BT Sport may hit you with an 82.5% deduction to the remaining charges as a cancellation fee. And, if you decide to cancel after 14 days, you are not eligible for a refund.
What Are the Best Alternatives to BT Sport?
While you can watch BT Sport using Sky, there is also Sky Sports. There are currently 11 Sky Sports channels available with a contract.
You can also watch some Sky Sports channels with the Now Pass, according to Where's The Match. It will cost £9.99 for a day pass, or £33.99 for a full month. This is a great choice if you want to watch rugby, but aren't interested in other sports like cricket or football.
There is also a BT Sport channel on YouTube if you're only interested in a single match.
