BT Sport plans to tempt pubs from Sky with a sports package which it claims could be 78% cheaper than its rival.
BT is offering pubs and clubs 12 months' subscription for the price of nine, which BT said for many independent pubs works out at £135 per month.
Hotels, golf clubs and betting shops will also be offered sport packages which BT said "massively undercut" its rival.
