Just ordered it via a british sales team, they will activate on the 18th of this month. Was told if i get the box soon i would be able to use the freeview before the activaction date but not the online features. I was able to spread the cost of the activation fee on my payment plan over several months. I mentioned the powerline adapters and was told they would be shipped out with all youview boxes as standard so hopefully i will get them. For anyone not wanting to speak to overseas i used the online chat and asked to be put through to The uk vision team. Very helpful they were and got me a better deal.
@ drhowells in my order screen on my bt it says youview box and powerline adapters together. Did you order from the overseas as i noticed they overlooked the power line adapters. Also when you ordered did they say it would be activated on the 18th ?
Well after having my expectations of a Friday delivery shattered and getting quite mad at BT for failing, I checked my order on My BT today and ran the parcelforce tracking check. Would you believe that my order is out for delivery today.
So BT bought themselves some bad press from me by changing my delivery date, then stick to the original anyway. At least I'll be a happy bunny later.
