Carrier billing for the Premier League!
Current restrictions have prevented fans from attending sporting venues and stadiums for several months, so it’s no surprise that the Premier League have taken the decision to stream a selection of football matches online. Matches in October, which have not been earmarked for regular televised coverage, can now be watched live via Sky Sports or BT Sport Box Office, for a fee of £14.95.
The option to charge to a user’s mobile phone bill was featured alongside traditional card payment options on the BT Sport Box Office website. Consumers selecting the carrier billing option were able to charge the pay-per-view content to their mobile phone bill, without needing to enter any card details — secure and convenient!
The first of many fixtures, featuring carrier billing was Chelsea vs Southampton which took place at the weekend. We are looking forward to more sporting events utilising mobile carrier payments, enabling more viewers to participate in the live action from the comfort of their own home!
