Next Generation TV

This thread continues to attract a lot of discussion, specifically about what customers think of the recent changes following their software update. If you missed it, here are our FAQs on the update. 


Scam calls

One of our top-viewed threads was about customers receiving unsolicited calls from scammers purporting to be from “BT Openreach”. The thread has only had a handful of recent replies, but it’s attracted a lot of views over the last month.


Openreach (or anyone from BT, for that matter) will never ring you unsolicited and ask you to install anything on your computer because “we’ve detected a problem”. It’s good to see so many on that thread advising they were able to spot the scam, but if you’re in doubt, please check out our advice on how to deal with scams
