You will get a combined bundle which includes both Sky Sports and BT Sport channels on Sky TV from £47 per month currently. 

But, this will only give you access to the BT Sport channels on Sky TV, not access to the BT Sport app. To access BT Sport app, either you have to get BT Sport channels from BT or if you are not a BT broadband customer, it will cost you around £30/per month to add BT Sport to Sky TV.
