Re: FOX TV channel ending on BT TV

I was told when I rang the £20 they were offering was to offset the cost of purchasing the walking dead.
I too have gone to where I know what I am getting and how much it is costing.

You did better than I did - I called 3 times and was never offered the £20, but simply told it wouldn't cost me anything to watch Fox on demand. 

 

This is exactly what I'm taking about - inconsistency and uncertainty abound.

Where have you seen these prices?

For example quoting special discounted offers that apply only to new BT TV customers and only for the first 12 months doesn't help existing BT TV customers.

Re: FOX TV channel ending on BT TV

I see BT are charging more for loyal customers. So if you were on entertainment max before 24th July (like myself) last year you get charged £16pm and anyone after 24th July is only £15pm.

I think that is a reflection of the last set of price rises that were applied from Sep 20th 2015.

There was an earlier cut off date for whether those rises applied to you or not as they have to give affected customers the necessary advance notice period and give them the chance to cancel.

 

So I think any contract started before 24th July got the price rise applied.

Any contract / re-contract from July 24th is at the current standard rate. They will get hit with the next price rise though.

 

This model applies to all the BT products. You sign up at a certain full price (hopefully with an additional discount for a set period) but eventually percentage price rises start being applied each year to your full price. The bills show this change.

If you re-contract your bills should show it reset to the current new contract full price (hopefully plus a new discount) as that is what the new contract is usually for.

Re: FOX TV channel ending on BT TV

One thing I think that BT could do is get a Youtube viewer on their box and offer Youtube Red to replace Fox, when it launches (which is supposed to be soon).  I know Youview and Youtube had differences but I'm sure BT could cut an exclusive deal for just their hardware.

 

I actually find that Youtube makes up most of my streaming watching these days - there's so much interesting free stuff on it even as it stands.  The Red service supposedly supplies premium content as well as no ads ... it would be a real coup for BT and it would fit in with the ethos of moving to on-demand streaming.

 

For sure, losing Fox is a blow from the point of view of providing a channel package but the market is moving more and more towards on-demand streaming and away from buying bundles of broadcast channels.  Sky are feeling the pressure and I'm sure that getting Fox off of BT is just part of trying to make their NowTV more attractive to viewers and in getting people used to streaming stuff from Sky.  Ultimately though, I feel that on-demand (as opposed to 'broadcasting a channel') streaming will be the way forward and I think Sky know it too.
