BT Retail UK Offers FREE Vision TV Service with Broadband and Phone Bundle

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012 (2:49 pm) - Score 682

BT has today launched a new offer that effectively includes its BTVision TV (IPTV) service for free alongside their broadband and calls bundle. The package, which would usually cost £17 a month, is for a limited time being reduced to just £13 (i.e. the £4 Vision Essentials element becomes free).

The package itself bundles BT’s Total Broadband Option 1 (i.e. up to 16Mbps speeds, 10GB usage, unlimited wifi, free HomeHub router and 12 month contract) service with unlimited evening and weekend UK calls. Customers also get the TV Essential (Vision) service, which includes PVR features and access to on-demand content, including box office films, as well as the usual iPlayer style catch-up TV content and Freeview channels.

Alex Green, BTVision’s TV Commercial and Product Director, said:

BT Vision is the fastest-growing digital TV service in the UK because it gives viewers exactly what they want: great TV, film and sport when it’s convenient for them to watch. We’re delighted to offer it free for a limited period so that even more people can see what they’ve been missing.”

But customers will still need to pay line rental from £10.75 a month and there’s also a one-off £40 activation charge, not to mention the £6.95 delivery fee for that vision box. It’s also worth pointing out that the price will return and even rise to £18 per month (not £17 as you might think) after the first 12 months of service. The offer, which doesn’t seem to be live on their website yet, ends on 4th October 2012.

    What do you get on BT Vision what you do not get on any decent Freeview box?

      I was wondering that. Our new TV has iPlayer and YouTube built in as well as “apps” like Netflix and so on.

      While some will assume that was just me BT bashing it not and is a sincere question.

      I cant find any information as to why people should be paying a monthly fee for that TV service. Looking at http://www.btvision.bt.com/prices/ and the £4 a month product you dont appear to get anything a decent freeview recorder box doesnt do, apart from the maybe the option to pay even more money per show.

      As you point out freeview recorders and Tvs have Iplayer, 4OD, demand5 etc nowadays so why would anyone want to pay £4 per month.

      Or to break it down…
      £4 x 12 (months and min contract length) = £48
      PLUS
      £40 activation charge = £84

      You may as well just get a decent freeview recorder box, unless i am (and im being serious) missing something.

      Just seems a scam to try to make money via ondemand content, much in the way i think youview will be.

    “While some will assume that was just me BT bashing” rightly assumed so didn’t reply. You can find out what it offers compared to other products yourself

      Wasnt bashing BT. Was a serious query, one which i did not expect a BT fan such as yourself to be able to answer though. Given i linked to the products pricing and details its clear ive already looked at what it DOES NOT offer.

      I admire BT though seems a good scam, rent out Freeview boxes.

    2. Avatar Deduction says:

      PS good to see you are still replying to me with your typical stupid remarks. Even though you said you would not be communicating any further and i stated i would be happy for you not to. Congrats on making another contradiction.

    3. Avatar FibreFred says:

      I’m not a BT “fan” I had vision when it first came out, the box was too loud so I stopped using it. I use FreeSat now

      Troll on…

    4. Avatar Deduction says:

      quote”I’m not a BT “fan””

      Funniest line you have made all year. Also dunno why you want to insist im trolling in every post is that supposed to offend me? I thought you was going to “stop feeding” anyway?

      Can you please for once be accurate in what you have previously stated and not respond to me any further. It would be nice if for once you were right about something. You come across as a bit angry, sad and bitter towards me and its showing more than just in more areas than just the comments now LOL

    At the beginning of my contract, I would sing the praises of BT Vision. However, when the time comes, I will be cancelling the service.

    I don’t believe that I get anything extra for £12.50 per month and would rather just use iTunes as and when I wish.

  4. Avatar Chris says:

    You get access to some free addtional content with BT Vision – films and tv. Not wonderful but some good bits. Plus the pay per view stuff which is extensive and not too expensive – flims @£2.99 to £4,99 for HD. It’s better than a plain freeview box.
