I have received an email and postal offer from BT saying that I can get Netflix at no extra charge and a free Youview+ box. I logged in to my BT account to make the order and it says it is imcompatible with my current TV unlimited package and that I have to have TV Essential. This seems like it is downgrading my package and then BT on demand is basic and I will have to pay to view TV shows. Also will it be the new Youview+ box or the big old chunky one. Can anyone explain this offer to me.
I also got the same sort of offer thought the post last Saturday but as I can already use Neflix via my sisters Netflix account I never bothered with the offer.
Also I just renewed all my BT contracts plus TV last Thurday.
BT TV enternenment package I have plus the HD extra bolt on and The BT fiml/box set bolt on.
I used to also have the BT music bolt on but I cancaled that last week when I renewed my BT contracts.
The Unlimited pack is no longer available and is now the Entertainment pack so you'll have to change to it to get any of the latest offerings.
I had the same offer and ordered Netflix on 29 Jan. BT say they cannot process the order - why? They cannot give me an answer, nor can they tell me why I cannot get the BT security package (my account tells me that I do not have Broadband. That's funny because I have Youview, TV onDemand, Entertainment pckage and Infinity 2 running at a steady 63/4 Mbps. Must be a figment of my imagination for the last 2 years!
Greylady, I'm curious to know if you ordered this package and if BT actually supplied what they offered? I too received the same offer by post, then ordered it on Saturday 31st January.
Unfortunately it's been a full catalogue of disasters since then. BT seemingly cannot get ANYTHING right. I simply wanted the forementioned offer and, when discussing ways to reduce my monthly bill, chose to remove the Music On Demand add-on. After nine days and numerous calls/chat sessions/emails, I've received the incorrect viewing box (twice!) - once without a remote control - and had my calling plans doctored without my knowledge, resulting in my monthly bill actually being increased!!!
I'm still having to use my old BT Vision box, and have been without HD channels and subscribed On Demand content for a week.
The only thing that I've actually benefitted from is Netflix. However, after having to contact Netflix directly to resolve the incorrect email address supplied to them from BT, I can currently only access it from other platforms.
I'd actually have exactly the same current level of benefits if I'd not bothered contacting BT at all and instead signed up directly with Netflix.
To be honest, I don't know if BT have been lying to me or if their staff (or outsourced agents) don't have the training/knowledge/ability to supply what they offer to their customers.

Hi Sean, thanks for the kind offer, I should have posted this answer before today. I stamped my feet and generally sulked at the nice Geordie lady on the phone and, after 58 minutes hanging on and listening to that awful electronic "music", she managed to get things sorted out. Netflix was working a week ago and I like it.
I think the most frustrating thing was that the problem was not a Netflix or broadband technical pablem, but just 2 BT computer systems that refused to talk to eac h other!
