The prices have been released. Existing Sky Sports customers have to pay an extra €10 per month for the first 6 months rising to €20 after that.
Non Sky Sports customers can get BT and Premier without Sky Sports for €17 per month rising to €34 per month after 6 months.

I wonder will get every get to a subscription / stream service where you just sign up for Pro 14, Champions Cup? I've little to no interest in the other sports on these packages.

Doubt it. At the moment the idea is for them to get exclusive rights to certain competitions and then you have to pay for the entire package even if you don't want to watch certain sports. They'll always make more money that way, market is too small for them to split it out for the competitions.

Be careful what you wish for on that front, LaLiga effectively took that gamble with Eleven Sports last season and lost dramatically.

Indeed think of a world where the Six Nations, Rugby Championship, Rugby World Cup, Heineken Cup, Pro14, Premiership Rugby, Top14, Super Rugby - all had their own steaming services with their own individual prices. Then think that many sports fans are fans of more than one sport all of which have their own sets of competitions. Really a better world?

To get a basic Sky sub and then the BT add on will cost a pretty penny. I'll be looking at Rugby Pass and/or other services.
Also I have eir for the land line at the moment but that's definitely going.

Does Rugby Pass show all Champions Cup & Pro14 matches or just a selection?

It shows all of them live, and also allows you too watch back full games too. It shows Super Rugby, Premiership and The Rugby Championship too.

I'm guessing with rugby pass, you also need a VPN?

Anyone hear of anything regarding adding BT to Virgin? Looks like it won't be a runner

Not happening apparently, for reasons which likely have little to do with rugby and more to do with the UEFA Champions League which is VM Sport’s flagship property. The only wholesale deal announced is with Vodafone, while eir have made noises about doing a wholesale deal but nothing concrete has been announced.

Paid TV has jumped the shark. Too many operators each trying their own slice of the pie. What will ultimately happen is that sports fans will decide not to bother as no package will come near to covering the sports they want sufficiently.
