I am currently considering getting a BT fibre broadband package with BT Sport and I want to be able to record BT Sport channels. This seems to mean that I need a BT youview+ box. Is there any reason why I cannot buy a second hand box from Ebay rather than a new one from BT?
There are several ways to watch BT Sport.
The BT Sport on BT TV which utilises a Youview box is effectively adding BT Sport onto a BT Tv subscription .
the BT TV subscriptions that BTTV currently market for new customers are packages that include either a Youview or YouView+ box normally with a minimum 12 month subscription.
Thanks for the reply but I did sort of know that - my thought was to get the Starter + BT Sport option (£3.50 per month after 6 months free) and then replace the youview box that comes with it with my own BT youview+ box to record stuff rather than get the Entertainment option (with youview+ box) at £10 per month ( increasing to £13.50 after 6 months.
Seems like a more cost effective option if it works - hence my question.
Thanks for this. I am only really wanting to watch and record the BT Sport channels - I would think that all BT Youview+ boxes would cover these?
