Virgin Media Ireland has stopped offering its sports channels to rival Eir. The company said on Twitter that it suspended the supply of Virgin Media Sport and Virgin Media Sport Extra because Eir failed to pay the contracted distribution licence fee. Eir Sport said Virgin Media was not willing to accept reduced payment for the time no sports were available.
