Which BT Vision box do you still have, is it the old Vision+ box, or is it the new YouView box?
The old Vision+ service is being ceased, so if you have one of thos boxes, you will be provided with a new YouView box as part of you new BTTV contract.
Ok ive just spoke to COT again the order placed for the tv last night failed i knew something wasnt quite right this morning as i had to email conformation, so they guy i spoke to has placed a new order there. The problem is now the service wont go live until the 6th of feb he even wanted to send an engineer!. Everything is still in place i just dont understand why the service just cant cant be activated would save so much messing around and delay.
MODS are you able to help me get this actived or do indeed need to go through the full process?
As you had started the transfer to Sky, then there would be a cease and re-provide on your line which is most likely why the order failed.
A cease and re-provide can take a minimum of 10 days, there is no way around this, as that period is an Ofcom ruling to reduce the incidence of slamming.
It would still apply to the TV, it takes that long for it to be re-provided, as I expect all of the cancellation tasks have not yet been closed. Quite a number of different parts of BT involved.
The guy in COT, spoke to the order management help desk and everything is closed. I also spoke with easy assist last night and they confirmed that also. They have since placed a new order for me with new equipment etc ( which i dont need) but the activation date is the 6th of feb. This really doesnt make it easy for customers who are looking to return.
It should be like anyother service if you have the equipment would be great if it could just be reactivated, more so with it only beeing off a few days, months i would understand.
Totally agree. BT do make things very difficult for their customers. I haven't had Sky for almost 2 years but when I contacted them last week to test the waters re 'come back' discounts they were only too eager to get me back. 1st question I was asked was 'do you still have your old box', when I replied that yes I had they told me that if I were to return it was only a matter of me reinstating my box and the account would be updated immediately and the box available to use by the time I'd get off the phone. Now that's how to keep customers happy.
thanks for the reply robert what dept was that you spoke too? as i was told that wasnt an option
