the part about it being directly connected, is it the case that it has not been tested and/or is not supported with powerline adaptors? or do they definitely not work?

It's a case that we do not support a connection via powerline adaptors, so we can only advise on hard-wired connections. 

 

also, is there a way to order this online, i hate dealing with customer service people on the phone.

At the moment, you can only order this over the phone. This may change in the future, but we don't have information on when this might happen.

 

thanks

Would the £500 voucher come through with the order or would there be a waiting period for that?

Re: Introducing Entertainment Ultra HD, including BT Sport Ultra HD

I think I might be getting a raw deal. I've literally just signed up for BT TV after some time away (it was activated on Wednesday), and I'm paying £10 for Entertainment Plus, plus £3 for the Kids package, plus £4 for HD totalling £17!!!

 

This new package has all of this, plus Ultra HD for £2 less per month!

 

Is there any way I can switch to this new package or am I stuck paying more for less?

Re: Introducing Entertainment Ultra HD, including BT Sport Ultra HD

Hi,

 

I just had a chat with someone at your sales department and I was about to order Entertainment Plus Package with HD Extra and Kids TV for £17 but then I decided to order Ultra HD Package for £15 which has everything I wanted plus 47 premium channels instead of 25 on Entertainment Plus.

 

But she told me that because I don't have 4K TV it wouldn't work. I have a recent Sony Bravia HD TV. I then asked her to ask an engineer or someone from your technical department because as far as I know you can still use 4K on an HD TV but you will only see it in HD and not 4K.

 

She kept insisting that the new box will not work on HD TVs and that I will be waisting £44 on the Engineer Installation.

 

Can you please look into this for me please as I am sure that there are many people who want this but don't own a Ultra 4K TV.

Husnu1, I've just read a little bit of the new user guide on my lunch break (sad I know) but you can use the new box on non-ultra HD TVs. You set the HDMI resolution to HD in the setings (720p, 1080i etc depending on your HD TV). BUT the Ultra HD channels wont work without a UHD/4K TV.

thanks. the LG 40UF770V is already on amazon for £679, which is what the voucher would discount to so not much of a bargain on that one.
