BT has headed over to Twitter to promote a new special offer geared towards gaming fans.

As revealed in a BT tweet, broadband subscribers are being given the opportunity to sample the new OnLive PlayPack Bundle for three months at no charge.

This means BT customers have free, unlimited access to more than 100 gaming titles for three months, with no obligation to sign up at the end of the trial.

BT told its Twitter followers that the deal was a "treat", rewarding their loyalty to its range of broadband deals.

A cloud-based gaming platform, OnLive launched in the UK to much fanfare in September 2011.

Broadband users running PCs with Microsoft Windows - XP, Vista or 7 - or Intel-based Macs with OS X 10.5.8 or later can take advantage of the service, as can mobile device users.

According to BT, subscribers can play "a massive selection of cutting-edge games instantly" via their broadband connection.

"With the OnLive Games Service, games are just seconds away – delivered on-demand to your PC, Mac, HDTV or tablet at blindingly fast speeds," BT added.

"It's just you, the internet and the games you love – yours to enjoy on any compatible device, wherever you have broadband."

BT customers taking advantage of the free, introductory offer gain access to the OnLive PlayPack Bundle, which ordinarily costs £6.99 per month.

All they need to do to qualify for the promotion is register with BT before January 31st 2012.

BT recommends having a broadband connection capable of at least 2Mb in order to enjoy a high-quality user experience.

And with BT Infinity broadband packages offering up to 40Mb downloads, speeds should not be a worry for the majority of consumers.

"OnLive delivers the latest games instantly, letting you play the games you want, whenever you want," BT said. "The only tough part is choosing what to play."
