Re: BT Sport and Sky Multiroom - farcical

It's the suggestion that BT should give Sky subscibers not one, but 3 services for the same price that is farcical. You should direct your ire at Sky. If it had played ball with BT during negotiations, then maybe BT would have agreed to Sky bundling the new sports channels within its own offerings.

Re: BT Sport and Sky Multiroom - farcical

I certainly don't see why BT should give away free boxes to support Multiroom. However given that as I see it BT are not looking to get extra money from their existing customers, but to encourage non BT Broadband to sign up to their BB offering, I can't see why there should be an issue of allowing their BB customers who have BTV and SKY to have BT Sport on each.

Re: BT Sport and Sky Multiroom - farcical

really don't see why they should if I am honest.

 

That'll be because you are paid by BT

 

They have completely cocked up and don't know what to do about it

Re: BT Sport and Sky Multiroom - farcical

I doubt BT particulary care about the sky multi room issue and won't be fussed about solving it. If it generates complaints to Sky they'll be quite happy. The amount of BT customers who will genuinely be impacted will be low enough not to worry.

Re: BT Sport and Sky Multiroom - farcical

BT will care. Say if just 5% of the 1.5 million Sky Multiroom accounts with some sort of sports subscription are put off signing up to BT. To BT that lost 5% is costing them £14 million a year in subscriptions. Judging by the reaction on the net, 5% is a very conservative figure as well.

Re: BT Sport and Sky Multiroom - farcical

There is a Sky rep on digital spy who claims that BT are working with Sky to provide a solution marked in for Christmas. Not good enough but it proves the point that they care.

Re: BT Sport and Sky Multiroom - farcical

(Should we tell the Sky customers we've had ESPN for free for a couple of years as well)

Don't be so rediculous, on both points.

Re: BT Sport and Sky Multiroom - farcical

People who want BT Sport are still ultimately going to pay for it on their main TV, even if they don't get it in their bedroom.

 

Sky will be pushing BT to get a solution for this, its Sky who's going to take all the complaints from their customers about it.

Re: BT Sport and Sky Multiroom - farcical

I would advise everyone who feels that BT should offer the same multiroom deal as we had with ESPN to do as I intend to & vote with their feet. You can always stream it!
