Just got an e-mail saying that if I want to watch BT Sport in HD it will cost me £3.00 per month from August.
I get BT sport through my Sky box and also have BT Infinity
Am I still going to be able to watch anything on BT Sport after August if I don't pay ?
Anyone who ordered BT Sport before Aug 1st 2013 got the BT Sport HD extra for free for 12 months. The email is just telling us (I got it today as well) that from Aug 1st 2014 we will have to pay £3 if we want to continue with the BT Sport HD extra.
It doesn't affect the normal BT Sport SD offer.
See here for info on that.
As the link in the email says, it's up to you whether you are happy to pay the £3 for HD from Aug or phone up and cancel it and just watch in SD. If you do nothing they will start taking the £3 for HD.
On the BT Sport Forum someone posted
"just checked with my supplier (virgin media) and don't affect my account and checked my e mail and have no notification of this extra charge ,"
So it looks like if you are with Virgin Media you don't have to pay any extra for BT Sport in HD, but if your with Sky you do even if you are a BT Infinity user.
Anyway if I have to pay an extra £3.00 per month to get HD I will ditch it and watch it on SD
And £6.75 p/m for the sport if you don't re subscribe for another 12 months for broadband.
Are only those using Sky boxes affected by that? This page implies so.
I'm on BT TV and have had no communication about that.
From next season BT are charging 3 different rates for the BT Sport SD pack (it mentions this in the terms and conditions). So my guess for next season is as follows.
The loyalty discounted rate is I think for those who want it next season, still have BT broadband, but don't wish to commit to a further 12 months BT broadband in order to leave their options open.
As previously mentioned, none of this applies to BT Sport on Virgin Media who resell it themselves and have their own pricing and offers.
I renewed my broadband about a month ago and was told I'll continue to receive BT Sport free, will I now need another new contract or will the existing "new" one suffice?
if you have BT sports HD then if you want to continue with HD then you will need to pay £3pm and need to do nothing. if you don't want HD and pay £3pm but quiet happy to revert to SD then you will need to cancell the BT sports HD before 1st August
Just cancelled my BT Sport,but whilst on the phone the chap said I had it FREE until the end of my contract which is December 2014 and there was no need to cancel.
Being sceptical of what i'm told by BT operatives I cancelled it anyway,I don't want hit for a bill in August because I won't extend my contract.
