Re: Full Now TV through the YouView box

This all seems a crazy move by bt

They seem to be driving the current loyal subscribers away. 

I would consider sky again if they were Internet based for the TV. But I would want to keep my broadband with BT as I had a lot of problems with sky broadband.

Re: Full Now TV through the YouView box

Just a thought.... if you moved to the new NowTV based service, what would happen to the BT TV catch up service?  What about, for example, catch up shows from TLC (which is a channel you would lose), would they still be accessible?

If people don’t want any kind of change no worries. Just stay on the plans your on at the same price. Even when your out of contract you can recontract to what you were on.

@Anonymous You have got to recognise though that BT is not going to continue negotiating carriage deals for the benefit of a dwindling number of customers on legacy packages. They will be gradually whittled away as those deals end.

Today marks the beginning of the end for non-Now TV channels on BT TV.

@Anonymous 

All the information in now BT website, you can just go there and add to your basket.

1. Classic Entertainment(SD) = £10 #

2. Add BT Sport = £15

3. Add BT Kids = £5

4. Add BT APP Extra = Free

5. Add More Entertainment Channels = £5

So the total is =£35

The original MAX pack was £25?

That's a £10 per month increase!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Full Now TV through the YouView box

Well I have no intention of moving over, but what will be interesting is if BT Sport increases in price for existing customers and if that then becomes more expensive than taking out the new packs?

I would say that the re-negotiating of the carriage deals ends of today.

Re: Full Now TV through the YouView box

On the MaxHD package and like many was looking forward to NowTV integration - in my case for the full Sports Channels rather than just SSME HD. I now removed that from my package but has not worked out quite the way I expected. I took a look at the VIP package @ £60 and was very and didn't expect a 24 month commitment to recontracting to broadband as well. 

Strategically this implementation and partnership with Sky seems off-target and not really sure where it is all going now.

Perhaps a phone call to see if some deal can be done for recontracting?
