BT has added two new bolt-ons to its TV offering, teaming a mix of HD sport and kid-friendly programming from £3 per month.

Dubbed HD Extra and Kids Extra, the add-ons are priced £3 per month to BT TV customers who already subscribe to the telecomms giant turned broadcaster's core Entertainment pack.

Choose HD Extra and you’ll get high-def versions of many of the channels provided with Entertainment, as well as three BT Sport channels in HD

Kids Extra includes nine channels, perhaps the pick of which are Nickelodeon, Disney, Boomerang and Cartoon Network.

To be able to sign up for the bolt-ons, you’ll need to be signed up to BT’s premium fibre broadband Infinity product and have a YouView or BT Vision box.

The offer entitles customers who already take BT Entertainment at £7 per month the opportunity to add the HD Extra and Kids Extra

Alex Green, director of TV for BT, said: “This new line-up is undoubtedly our strongest TV offering. BT TV now offers over 100 TV channels, including more than 50 delivered via our broadband network.

“We can offer a fantastic HD quality experience through the power of fibre, and there’s something for all the family with our great new Kids channels. We know that customers don’t like paying a fortune for hundreds of channels they never watch so we’re making things easier for them and putting the choice in their hands.”

BT has also announced that its on-demand service will now be offered as flexible monthly bolt-ons. This will offers Kids or Music on demand at £3 a month each or Film & TV Box Sets at £5 per month.
