From July 2023 BT Sport will be renamed TNT Sports, this comes after last year's £650million merger with Warner Brothers Discovery, who will relaunch the channel next season with a homage to American cable station Turner Network Television. TNT Sports from launch will be available to watch on Discovery+ which leads the way to the discontinuation of the BT Sport app.

TNT Sports will take over BT's existing portfolio of live rights, which includes two more seasons of Premier League matches, the next four years of Champions League fixtures and Premiership Rugby. However the auction for the next set of Premier League rights will take place in the next 12 months, with new players such as Apple TV and DAZN expected to join Sky Sports and TNT in bidding for matches. TNT Sports have stated they very much intend to bid for these Premier League rights.

Warner Brothers Discovery also operate Eurosport in the UK which will remain as is for now until the 2024 Paris Olympics when we expect Eurosport content to be shifted onto the TNT Sports platform followed by the closure of Eurosport.
