Sports Card Viewing - Activate your card via your BT Vision box!

[ Edited ]

The Premier League kicks off this weekend! Make sure your sports viewing card is activated so you don't miss out.


If you have problems with your Sports channels and get an onscreen message saying “Please insert the Viewing Card in the Viewing Card slot” this might be because your viewing card needs activating.  If you’re a sports subscriber and have a viewing card you can now activate your card on your TV.


There are two different ways to access Sports Card Activation:


1. Simply press BT Vision on your remote, scroll to Help and choose ‘Sports Card Activation’. If you can’t see this option, reboot your Vision+ box by turning it off and on again at the wall socket, it should then be available.




2. Select Channel 999, then choose Sports and then select ‘Activate your Sports Viewing Card’
