I'm just wondering if someone can explain the benefits of a continuing BT TV subscription once you have completed your initial 12 month contract?
It used to be that we got some programs on advert-free catch-up and also some free films. None of this is supplied now, the only catch-up is that provided by the likes of ITV player and all4. The films and box-sets are now all paid items.
The box will belong to me and of course I appreciate if the box packs up I'd have to buy a new one, but as long as I have a BT broadband subscription, what am I actually missing out on?
Any replies would be most helpful.
1) The extra channels
2) If your on a limited internet package at present youview usage doesn’t count towards it
3) The pleasure of a few extra pounds taken from your account each month
If you do have a subscription you can watch much of the subscription channels content catch up on bt player add free..
It depends if your broadband is capable of giving you subscription channels.
I took it out a couple of years ago when then recording capable box came with the basic subcription, taking the view that it was a reasonably priced way to replace the dvr which had failed. Once the 12 months was up, I tried to cancel, but was effectively given it free for the next 12 months, after which I cancelled. I'm on an unlimited ADSLmax package, with no access to addtional channels, so I couldn't see the point in paying extra for just a couple of programs that I didn't want on BT catchup, particularly as movie rentals and purchases are generally cheaper on other services.
