New customer will i get youview or vision+?

I ordered my BT phone, TV and Infinity on the 6th of october. My phone line is due to be switched over from my current provider to BT on the 18th of October. I am wondering tho, what box will i recieve for TV. Will it be youview or a vision+ box?

Unless you asked for YouView and were told you would have to pay the £50 fee, you will get the BT Vision box.

Agree with DRH. The two are being offered as an either or option at the moment. So if you didn't ask for a YouView box, you won't get a YV box.

I am told that they will be in touch once my phone line has been activated to actually place the order for the infinity. Would this mean i could ask for the Youview box then? Is it any more expensive than the Vision+ box? I know there is the £50 activation fee but does this not come with just geting the Vision+ too?

I do not know the answer to that question, sorry. Best to ask BT, when they contact you.

You should know that currently Youview and Vision+ are different but overlapping offerings, with Vision+ offering Sky sports for instance and it not yet being available on Youview - its the plan but not yet the reality. So be clear what you want before asking for Youview, you can seewhat Youview offers currently by looking at the Youview website and the BT Vision player page, links below. "BT Vision Player" is the application/plugin that runs if you subscribe to it with BT.
