With its YouView boxes, BT TV gives you the ability to pause and rewind live TV, plus you get access to catch-up TV and hours of on-demand content, allowing you to watch TV the way you want to.
BT TV all starts with the BT YouView set-top box. It comes in three different models, each corresponding to one of BT's TV packages.
If you go for BT's mid-tier option, the Entertainment Plus package, you get the YouView+ box, which allows you to record TV shows, too. It has enough storage for up to 300 hours of television, and you can record across the 110 channels you get access to.
BT's top-tier box is the YouView+ UltraHD. As the name implies, this set-top box allows you to watch programmes in 4K, also known as UHD. This box comes with the Total Entertainment package, which offers 141 channels, 21 of which are in HD. With the Total Entertainment package, you can get BT Sport for free, and you can watch BT Sport in HD or 4K formats.

For an additional charge, BT TV customers who live in a BT Infinity area can add Sky Sports Main Event and Main Event Extra to their package. This can be done on a month-to-month basis, so there’s no need to commit to a lengthy contract. Once NOW TV has integrated with YouView, BT subscribers will be able to get every Sky Sports channel through NOW TV's Sky Sports pass.
