I just joined bt broadband (infinity 38mb unlimited), tv, phone line, and got btsport free for 12months on the 2nd June
now less than a month i get a letter to say i have to pay £5 a month from 1st August 2015 to get bt sport pack.
I've called bt twice and they say its free, but looking around the forum i see bt sports lite, both advisors never said anything about this.
Do i have to pay extra yes or no ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm in the same boat. Just got the letter through the post about the £5 extra charge from August 1st and have also just moved to BT phone, TV and broadband.
Is the extra £5 just for the new Europe Sports channel or do I need to pay it to keep BT Sports 1 & 2?
(EDIT: Just phoned BT (customer options team) and was told because I have BT TV I would still get BT Sport for free from August 1st. I wonder why BT couldn't send this letter just to people affected by the new pricing?)
Just one off the phone to BT and it will be charged to everyone as off the 1st August, poor...just poor show BT, a new customer who will not be returning after contract ends
you get sport 1 free only rest is £5 sneaky BT
Also if you have bt tv you pay £2.50
But remember this if you have a 12 month contract for broadband and you got BT SPORT FREE with this its the 12 month contract thats got you by the B...S the fiver's for the call staffs wages they desperate to get you for the fiver
Also they have paid billions for the sport so me personally i'm expecting another surprise when the premier league starts
just looked on the bt site it states
With BT TV it's FREE
BT TV is the best way to watch BT Sport Pack.
TV Packages start from just £0/mth
I have bt tv in my package, so is it free ?
My package is Infintiy 2, Why should I be charged something i should be getting as part of my package already? Its a bit like buying a car with free air con, to be told it'll cost you a fiver each time you use it. very unfair.
The letter says I will pay from August, just 2 months into my year contract for Infinity 2. That is daylight robbery - I don't like football, tennis, darts, baseball. I watch some motorsport but not bikes, I watch some baseball and will watch most of my teams games in the Rugby Premiership.
I chose not to take BTTV as the risk of Avira swapping broadcasters is a great possibility. I don't have Sky and never want to. Quiet happy with the app - especially when the kids hog the PC!
Can someone from Billing please come here and answer our concerns. Otherwise in 10months I'll move away rorm BT to another ISP
