I switched packages when Now TV was available. I should have waited but there you go. It was only afterwards I found out about losing certain channels. In the emails that came after switching it did say that some channels would be lost but never specified, I should have checked, my bad, mea culpa.
I'd like to watch Eurosport when sport actually happens again so I'll have to pay extra for the app.
I'd like to watch the new show on Alibi (We Hunt Together) but we don't get that channel now. I can't get Virgin or Sky (hence me being with BT TV) and it's not on UKTV Play....
I've never condoned piracy before but if you leave people with no legal way of viewing what do you expect?
Is there any legal way to watch this show? Stop me being a pirate please
hello i am still on max hd and this runs out in december (unless bt force me off sooner )as its no longer available , i too will miss uktv channels and others but not all is lost for me as my mother has sky and that comes with sky go .i downloaded sky go to my ps4 and log in using her details as she is 84 and will never use sky go. i now can watch most of the channels that will be lost , i can't record them but i can watch them
Hi @IanLatham ,
At present, BT are offering a Classic Entertainment package: https://www.bt.com/packages/classic which offers the original channels, Eurosport, Alibi etc. but not the Now TV channels within it.
If you would like any more information, please send me a private message and more than happy to discuss with you.
Which option is most suitable for you will be down to personal preference. Thank you,
Thanks Gemma I'm not sure the answer is to change my package again even if I were allowed to do that penalty free. The advertising is and was a bit misleading "VIP– for those who want everything TV has to offer and more". Everything? I checked the website again this morning and it still doesn't say anything anywhere about Alibi not being in the VIP mix but in your Best of TV page on the website it's advertising "We Hunt Together" on Alibi.
I just think that BT should be more transparent. I realise I'm stuck with the package I've got and will check things through more thoroughly in the future which is why it was more a rant than a question.
The basic message is
Have a great day 😊
You are not alone in challenging BT when it comes to the clarity and honesty in their new offering, but it is not going to change so options are as follows:
Unfortunately Alibi (and quite a few other channels), has been withdrawn from TV Player so that was your only other legal option out the window.
