Hipgrave is keeping the Premier League presenting duties she began at the start of this season.
A Warner Bros spokesperson declined to comment.
It is understood that the offer to Woods includes presenting live matches and involvement in other programming.
Woods currently presents the morning breakfast show on talkSPORT, for which she has won several awards, after hosting ITV’s World Cup coverage in Qatar last year.
She previously spent 13 years at Sky Sports in a number of roles including pitchside reporting, interviewing and presenting before leaving last year to join ITV, for whom she also fronts their live NFL coverage.
BT have begun heavily promoting TNT during recent weeks ahead of its launch this summer, which has followed Warner Brothers Discovery’s takeover of the company.
