Retail Youview+ box and BT Sport - pls clear up once and for all!

I have BT Infinity.

 

I have a retail Humax T1010 YouView+ box from John Lewis not BT branded.

 

How do I get BT Sport?  I dont want any other "great extra channels" thanks.

It's not available on non-BT YouView boxes. With no other TV service the only way is from the website to a computer, which can be connected to the telly.

You could have a look at

Have you considered taking a BT TV package that includes a Youview box .... you could continue to use your existing one at the same time.

Yes - Zulu17 has posted the correct link. It is now £5 a month for new BT Vision Player customers. You need BT Vision Player with BT infinity if you have a retail box.

Yes but BT Vision Player Essentials isn't Extra Channels (which is what the OP doesn't want). It's on Demand.

You don't actually get any content for the £5 other than BT Sport as the on demand content is then PAYG. So you could say the £5 just gets you BT Sport.

I haven't got my point across but I give in.

You get BT sport after spending 5 hours on the phone being told to send your box back and they will send you a free one, doesn't matter that we have bought a humax box with BT vision built in and the BT logo on teh front apparently no matter what teh website says you can't sign up to BT vision for any package without having BT send you a box even though www.bt.com/player says:
"BT Sport is now available on YouView boxes not bought directly from BT. To enjoy BT Sport you'll need our new BT Player Essential package below and BT Infinity.

Please call us on 0800 085 2795 to place your order."
