As I understand it these channels will be on freeview 41 & 42 for ADSL customers?
If I can get infinity but do not want it due to household disruption will I be allowed to have BTSrort 1 & 2 via. freeview?
I currently have SS1 & SS2 but may have to dump them due to the disruption of having infinity installed.
All the best

I spoke to BT this morning and they confirmed that the customer has the choice, if they live in a BT Infinity enabled area, to either -
1. upgrade to BT Infinity and therefore receive BT Sport for free, or
2. remain on normal broadband, and still receive BT Sport for free, if you buy a £10 viewing card
BT also inferred that Sky Sports currently viewed through normal broadband will not be withdrawn anytime soon
I then actually upgraded to BT Infinity...purely because they offered me a 12 month contract at the same price which I currently pay for normal broadband, with no activation, nor setup, nor installation costs...result...!!!

I live in a non infinity area, and just ordered broadband and Vision+ on the phone for BT Sport, was told i would be contacted in July about paying/ordering the card for the 1st August launch.

When I said that I wanted to continue with Sky Sports and believed the only way to do this was to upgrade to BT Infinity, I was told this is not necessarily the case. I must admit that I don't believe what BT said any more than you do, according to recent Press Releases and letters received by many contributors on this forum, we will just need to wait and see.
Try calling 0800 121 4505...and ask to speak to Charlotte. Just to confirm my story.

No problem, no offence taken. You're right in saying that BT change their story every two minutes.
My suggestion to call BT was to see if they tell you the same thing as they told me...would be a first if they showed any sort of consistency...haha!!!
Charlotte was very helpful indeed.

Perhaps the MODS would post to put us all straight.
I am getting more and more confused by the minute.
At the moment I intend to let SS1 & SS2 lapse. BT have suggested this will be after 3 June 2013 in the letter I received.
August 18 approaches, start of premier league season, I will then see what the options are.
I just can't believe BT's approach is to let all those who currently have ADSL and SS1/SS2 and ESPN but don't want the hassle of having infinity installed with no where to go but Sky. This is a real own goal.
All the best
