BT BOX OFFICE - how to create an account?

I want to watch the Wilder V Fury fight (like millions of us!) 

I'm trying to pay for it on BT Box Office... it wants me to sign in (there is no by button): https://btsportboxofficen.bttv.bt.com/video/wilder-v-fury

The FAQ offers a link to create a BT Box Office account. Guess where it takes you? https://btsportboxofficen.bttv.bt.com/video/wilder-v-fury

Could somebody please show us where to create BT Box Office accounts? I am not a BT or Sky or Virgin customer, I'm just a person who wants to watch a boxing match. 

I can't be the only one with this issue so please answer for me and everybody else who isn't techy.

NOT logical, but try this: 

https://btsportboxofficen.bttv.bt.com/secure/subscription?sku=PPAYPERVIEW&id=5&signup=true

Re: BT BOX OFFICE - how to create an account?

This is a wonderfully innovative workaround and it does show a sign up page... for 0.5 seconds, after which the website redirects you to the title page... 

It is like BT is so desperate not to take my money that they coded the site to resist being made to work even by a helpful community member like yourself.

Re: BT BOX OFFICE - how to create an account?

I'm using Firefox and it works for me, if I click https://btsportboxofficen.bttv.bt.com/video/wilder-v-fury I can then press 'Buy Event', that link then takes me to https://btsportboxofficen.bttv.bt.com/secure/subscription?sku=PPAYPERVIEW&id=5&signup=true which is the link @CJT80 posted.

I can then register an account, after that place an order ? I never registered so no clue what follows.

 

*Edit*
Just tried with IE and that also works, strange.

Re: BT BOX OFFICE - how to create an account?

Yes. Have also contacted BT several times -- they were much less useful than you guys, so thanks so much for all your help. 

I have found an illicit means of watching the event. It's sad because I would prefer to pay and support the sport and fighters, but it is literally impossible for me to buy it.

Thanks again guys
