Re: New BT TV Offerings

So will exisiting BT Vision users be automatically upgraded to a Youview box?

If so will this be free or an extra charge? And will the Youview box be the new boxes or will it still be a cross your fingers and hope approach?

Just tried to upgrade to this new package on the site and it asked for £199 for a Youview box (again), so I just cancelled the order (again).

I wondered that too, but having looked again at what you get for the price, I think all they're doing is including the Kids' channels in the count.

That sounds to me like the 34 channels are made up of both the 'premium entertainment' and 'kids' channels. So I still reckon they're just including kids' channels in the count!

These package changes apply to new BT TV contracts. There is no reason to change the contracts of existing BT TV customers. It has nothing to do with any possible future phasing out of the BT Vision platform.

 

So I think the answer to your initial question is 'No', for the time being at least. If you wanted to start a new contract on one of the new packages then you may well have to upgrade to a BT Youview box as well which is normally a £35 activation charge (or a £199 charge if you are still within your current contract minimum term)? The Customer Options Team on 0800800030 should be able to answer that.

Re: New BT TV Offerings

I have re worked out the cost of what I'm now paying for my TV and I'm paying £2 more a month not £6 as I posted above for I never take into account that I also havd the old BT film/TV box sets at £5 a month. I no longer have the BT film/TV box sets since I upgraded to entertainment Max yesterday evening. I would have liked one or two more channels added to the BT TV anywhere app.
Apart from that BT seem to have made some good improvements and at lest the BT TV max price is still cheaper than Sky's original and Family packages.
