Deal information

*The "up to" speed displayed in Mb is the maximum possible speed you are likely to receive for this product. The actual speed you will get depends on your cabling, your area and (with non-fibre optic products) time of day and how far you are from the telephone exchange. Most providers will tell you the likely speed you will receive when you begin your online sign up - this may differ from the speed displayed in the table.

The deals available at your postcode are subject to local availability. The provider will confirm availability for your line.

TV from BT: What do I get?

BT's digital TV service offers over 70 Freeview and radio channels, as well as catch-up services, such as iPlayer and 4OD, and on-demand players, such as Netflix, NOW TV and Amazon Prime Video. BT TV customers can also rent and buy movies and TV shows through Sky and BT.

BT TV is based on the YouView set top box. As with all set top boxes, this offers the option to pause and rewind live TV. The YouView set top boxes provided with the higher-end BT TV deals also feature a hard drive with space for recording programs.

One of BT Television's major selling points is its electronic program guide, or EPG. This is a table that collates TV schedules for Freeview channels with on-demand players and streaming services in a single location, with a view to making it easier for customers to find content they're interested in.

What does the BT YouView box offer?

The YouView box supplied with BT TV packages is a bit like a Freeview set top box in that it offers access to 70+ Freeview and radio channels and lets you pause and rewind live TV.

However, unlike Freeview boxes, higher-end BT television boxes also enable customers to record digital TV, with onboard hard drives for storing content. These have space for hundreds of hours of video.

Subscribers can self-install BT TV boxes. The first step is hooking it up to a Television and is simply a matter of connecting it to the existing TV aerial to get Freeview TV. To complete installation, customers have to connect the BT YouView box to the internet via the Home Hub.

Can anyone get BT TV?

To get TV from BT, you need to ensure you fulfil these criteria:

1) You must have a BT residential phone line that provides a broadband connection speed of at least 2Mbps. You can find this out by using uSwitch Tech's speed checker

If you do not receive this speed, it doesn’t necessarily rule you out. You may be able to dramatically boost your speed with the Broadband Accelerator service, whereby a BT engineer will pay you a visit to maximise your connection.

2) If you want to control Freeview digital TV, it stands to reason that you must reside in an area where Freeview TV reception is available.

Which programmes does BT TV offer?

BT TV's major sell is BT Sport. Free to BT broadband customers, this offers live Premier League games, coverage of European rugby games and the Aviva Premiership. Its line-up also includes the NBA, Moto GP, UFC fights and sports films and documentaries.

However, although BT Sport is free, in order to watch BT Sport on a TV rather than on a computer or mobile device customers must be signed up to BT's Infinity fibre broadband service.

BT Infinity customers can also add Sky Sports channels to their BT Television package for an additional monthly charge. However, only Sky Sports 1 and 2 are available. The rest of Sky's sports channels are only on offer to Sky subscribers.

YouView boxes also offer support for all the major TV streaming services, such as Amazon Prime, NOW TV and Netflix, as well as over 70 Freeview channels and all the key on-demand video players.

BT TV offers movie rentals either directly from BT or from Sky too.

What happened to BT Vision?

BT Vision, BT's old TV service based on the Vision boxes supplied with BT Vision deals , has been replaced by BT TV.

Below we look at the key differences between BT Vision packages and BT TV deals:

1) BT TV features a wider spread of content than BT Vision, including BT Sport, and still includes the full range of BT Vision channels.

2) Higher-end set top boxes are also provided with BT TV than with BT Vision packages, with more storage and more channels.

3) Unlike the days of BT Vision, BT TV packages now feature a free app that enables customers to control their set top box remotely using their smartphone or tablet.
