BT TV package changes are afoot

Changes are afoot!

 

When I reached the package and pricing pages in My BT on the website just now, checking what upgrade and channel options I had, I was fed a page headed:

 

"TV Starter"  £0 a month (£19 activation)

Up to 70 Freeview radio & TV channels

Catch Up TV

Pause & Rewind Δ 

 

"Entertainment Starter" £5 a month (£19 activation)

Up to 70 Freeview radio & TV channels

Catch Up TV

25 entertainment channels

Pause & Rewind Δ 

 

"Entertainment Plus" £10 a month

Up to 70 Freeview radio & TV channels

Record TV

25 entertainment channels

TV Everywhere

Free activation

 

"Entertainment Max" £15 a month

Exclusive to existing TV customers

Up to 70 Freeview radio & TV channels

Record TV

25 entertainment channels

TV Everywhere

HD Extra included

Kids Extra included.

 

There is some new stuff about the Sports packages including BT Sport, mentioned £13.49 a month excluding SS1 & 2 so...  oh, it does now say BT Sport is free with BT Infinity.

 

This ties in with a BT CS rep yesterday evening who told me that BT TV changes were on the way but he couldn't say what. Anyway, they are making big changes to the website tonight and I got a sneak peek.  Pause & rewind only, on the two base packages though? Must be Youview boxes and Youview+ boxes, it adds "Δ If choosing to switch to a recordable box, there will be a £35 box swap fee".

 

Overall it looks like a price rise for new Infinity users, though TV Essential is still available with recording at £5 pm for broadband customers. I guess BT too have to pay for the football...

Darren, if you look under TV, then it says 25 Extra Channels including Lifetime, History 2, but seems BT are still updating things.

Then if you go to upgrade as an existing cutomer, it will give you the details of Entertainment Max. Seems you can now have TV Everywhere without having to purchase a second box.
Something for existing customers!
