Uswitch comments on BT price rise for Sport and TV customers
BT has announced that from 1st November 2020 the price for BT Sport and TV will go up by up to £6 a month for some of its customers.
Nick Baker, TV expert at Uswitch.com, comments:
“Price rises are never welcome, but this new hike comes at a time when television is the only way for fans to watch their favourite sports.
“A £4 increase to BT’s sports bundle and a £2 hike to its Entertainment package will add £72 a year to bills, placing more pressure on households at a time when many are feeling the pinch.
“Recent rule changes mean that large groups of friends and family can’t gather in pubs and houses, so more people will need their own TV subscription to ensure that they don’t miss out.
“Existing customers may feel doubly hard done by, since the price rise comes as BT is offering new customers heavily discounted TV prices for six months.
“The good news is, if you’re a BT customer and don’t want to pay the extra charges, you can leave your contract penalty-free if you act within a month of being told your bill is changing.
“If you're signing up to one of BT's latest TV and broadband deals, be sure to check the fine print carefully to see how you could be affected.”
