I left BT 2 years ago because they could not re-contract me without losing all of my services. I went to Virgin and no real issues. Came back to BT again 3 weeks ago thinking it would be better, oh dear!
After more than 3 weeks and hours on the phone, they have not been able to add a second TV box subscription to my account! I have spoken to what must be most of BT! Now yesterday there may have been some activity on my account but now cannot check due to this "launching something new" ...... wonderful!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you for getting back to me. Yes my line can support an extra box and indeed, as a previous customer I had this up and running.
I already have a non-recordable second box and I can stream IP subscribed channels to it without issue. However, as the system knows I don't have the subscription it "takes over" from my primary box.
Although I keep getting assurances that they will remove the app extra and add extra box subscription only, nobody can do it!! I've had manual orders created that have then been cancelled, I've had numerous people try and add it but to no avail. Last I heard was that there is an issue with my account and the "backoffice" staff are sorting it. I also have a case manager assigned but 4 weeks after re-joining BT, no news or updates!!! Not happy to say the least!
I now have agreement that I can leave BT without cancellation charges (HTTC?). I'd rather it was sorted out but I have spent so many hours on the phone I am not hopeful!
Thanks for posting back to confirm your line can support extra box on BT TV.
As you have been trying to get this sorted out and you're no further forward you can send us over your details and we'll give you a hand from here.

Urgh ...... looked at prices for both VF and Sky for broadband. Looks like yet another issue as both of them are saying that I'd need a new line, clearly I do not as I have a valid landline number & fttc. So it would appear that either BT and/or Openreach are not advertising the correct info to other provider's "checkers" relating to my address/landline number .......
Thanks for taking the time to chat with me again today.
Sorry you had problems getting the extra box added and that it went on for so long. When I picked up your case I could see that there was an issue on your original order. The aspect of the order to bring your number back over from your previous provider wasn't closed off (even though it did come over successfully). This resulted in the order not closing properly and not reflecting the services you can get.
I got that closed off earlier and within a few minutes everything tallied up as it should have and your order for extra box is sorted now
Everything else we discussed is sorted today too and the changeover will happen on Monday. I'll go ahead and close things off from here as agreed!
Robbie, what can I say .... THANK YOU!!
All sorted, brilliant stuff. You've managed to sort out the issues in one afternoon vs. many weeks/hours on the phone to all manner of departments in BT
Thanks again 🙂
