BT Sport & Broadband Extender/Powerline Debate

Go to solution

Hi

New to the forum & seen varied info on this topic. 

I currently BT Infinity broadband as of November last year and still have Sky TV at present. 

I got BT Sport with BT Infinity for 3 months free in effect & watch it through Sky. 

So my question-

My BT hub has to be connected to the master phone socket which is in another room to TV. 

I have TP link powerline adapters that I don't use at present but can. 

I have read that BT Sport & some other channels may not work with such adapters. 

Can anyone give me a definite answer before I consider switching to BT TV. 

Thank you.

Welcome to this user forum.

 

Powerline adapters do work, as BT will supply a couple on request, for a small fee (£20 I think). They are BT ones, so I am not sure about the TP Link ones, but provided they are fast enough, and pass the multicast stream, they should work fine. I would be inclined to request the BT ones to guarantee things will work.

Thanks. I'm happy to get new BT extenders if needs be. I guess the ones BT recommend are the ones they sell!

@neilsmalcolm @Keith_Beddoe Yes you are correct if you add the extenders as part of the BT TV order on BT.com you get them at a discounted price of £20.
