It's only 30 days notice if you get it through Sky though right?
The BT Sport pack is always only 30 days notice for everybody. What we are talking about is that you commit to 12 months BT Broadband when you sign up for the free BT Sport pack. Even if you subsequently cancel the BT Sport pack I think I'm right in saying the new 12 months minimum BT Broadband contract remains in place.
I agree with iniltous.
Note: Virgin customers have a different agreement as BT Sport is resold through Virgin packages.
The title is *Do not GET BT Sport"
I have been paying for this program for 4 months without a live signal. I have tried the tech line several times with no success - Last week I spent an hour on the phone with some semi trained person. When I asked to be connected to someone more knowledgable, I was told that I would be contacted within 48 hrs.. I am still waiting.
Also waiting for the contract to expire, but fear that when I signed up, I am tied into 12 months from last August.
At least **bleep** Turpin wore a mask.
It might be worth reading the "Distance Selling Regulations" in particular the Ofice of Fair Tradings take on it (link below) I don't know what people were told or how they were told it (I do not have or want sports) but it does look as though you could get out of the contract if BT have not supplied the information correctly.
I stumbled in to this problem today. My 'special deal' broadband and line rental finishes on April 9th but I have a contract until 28th June because I took up the 'free offer' of BT Sport as a broadband user. I am looking at the order confirmation and there is nothing about an extended contract and in fact these are onerous terms as I'll be paying full price for three months if I keep to the contract. BT have no record of the order so I sent them a copy and asked them to point out where it says anything about extending the contract. They couldn't find anything so resorted to 'you must have agreed this during the online process'. Well I didn't and because they are onerous terms they should by law get explicit confirmation. They should have phoned or emailed and got me to confirm. I had the same problem with SKY who do this on a regular basis. BT are not abiding by consumer law and it's bad customer service anyway. Offering BT Sport with one hand and then increasing other charges with the other is just underhanded. My Bill went from £75 to £157 for a quarter becuase of this 'free' offer. Now if that's fair trading then something is wrong
This was in the flyer that BT sent out.
"BT Sport is also available on the Sky Digital Satellite Platform or BT TV with Infinity for new and existing broadband customers who sign up for 12 months or have 12 months remaining on their contract; ongoing renewal needed to get discounted BT Sport."
When I phoned to order they told me it would extend my contract.
And on the confirmation at the base there is a link at the bottom which within the T&C says:
Did none of these happen for you?
I had just upgraded to Infinity with an 18 months contract when I signed up for BT Sport, so I met the requirement automatically. But I have to say that the 12 months minimum broadband requirement was abundantly clear at the time even though it had no material effect for me.
