BT TV customers will see their package boosted by the addition of channels such as Eden, Good Food and Home as part of an extended deal with UKTV.

Consumers already have access to a number of UKTV channels, including Gold, Alibi, Watch, Dave, Really, Yesterday and Drama, but from today (August 13th) subscribers will have access to the company's full portfolio of channels.  

The move means customers can enjoy a host of new shows, including Storage Hunters UK, Dave Gorman: Modern Life Is Goodish, Marley’s Ghosts, Last Man on Earth and Singing in the Rainforest.

As well as receiving three extra channels, customers will also have access to the UKTV Play catch-up service, with coverage extended to BT’s TV Everywhere app, allowing subscribers to watch their favourite shows both at home and on the move.

Delia Bushell, Managing Director of BT TV and BT Sport, said the move was indicative of BT's rapid expansion and its ambition to better cater for customers.   

She added: "This further supports our vision for providing customers with a range of great quality TV at affordable prices.”

The extension to the deal between the two parties was also welcomed by UKTV, with CEO Darren Childs stating: “UKTV's continued investment in original content has made our channels more popular with viewers than ever before.

"I’m delighted BT's customers will now be able to enjoy programmes from across our network and watch great entertainment on demand with UKTV Play.”
