ISP BT Retail Add FREE YouView TV Box to their Superfast Broadband Bundles

Saturday, Oct 27th, 2012 (8:10 am) - Score 1,375

ISP BT Retail has quietly revamped its triple-play broadband, phone and television bundles with the new introduction of a FREE YouView IPTV box (normally £299) that includes 500GB of storage for video recording and effectively appears to replace their old BTVision solution.

The two YouView packages available are TV Essential and TV Unlimited. Both packages include Freeview (+4 channels in HD), 7 day catch-up and the 500GB YouView box (i.e. roughly 120 hours of HD recording). The new TV bundles can be taken alongside either BT’s standard or superfast broadband (BTInfinity) products at a discount price.

Separately TV Essential is a pay-as-you-go style solution that costs £4 a month and includes access to Box office movies from £3.50 per film or 50p per TV show. By comparison TV Unlimited (£12.50 a month) also includes “unlimited” access to all on-demand shows (sports, entertainment etc.) and the Vision Film service.

Prices for the full triple-play bundles start at just £4 a month for the first six months but to save time we’re only going to list two of the top packages with an “unlimited” usage allowance as this is the model most comparable to BT’s primary rivals (e.g. Sky Broadband and Virgin Media).

TV + Unlimited Broadband and Evening & Weekend Calls
* Up to 16Mbps Download Speeds
* Unlimited Usage Allowance (FUP)
* FREE Evening & Weekend Calls to UK landlines
* BTHomeHub 3 Wireless Router Included
* Unlimited Wi-Fi minutes
* Advanced online security
* 5GB secure online storage
* One off activation fee £49
* FREE YouView Box
* Sainsburys £50 Giftcard
* 18 Month Contract

Monthly Price (TV Essentials): £25 (first 12 months then £31)
Monthly Price (TV Unlimited): £32.50 (first 3 months then £38.50)

TV + Unlimited Superfast Broadband and Evening & Weekend Calls
* As above except..
* Up to 76Mbps Download Speeds
* Up to 19Mbps Upload Speeds

Monthly Price (TV Essentials ): £26 (first 12 months then £31)
Monthly Price (TV Unlimited): £32.50 (first 3 months then £38.50)

On top of that it’s important to remember that phone line rental must also be paid, which costs from £10.75 a month (when paid 12 months in advance) and Anytime Calls can be added for an extra £4.90 a month. Note that a delivery fee of £6.95 for the hardware is also applicable. Interestingly the bundles also have a confusing split-contract; 18 month minimum broadband/phone term and 12 month minimum TV term.

Similarly those who still want the Sky Sport’s service cannot take this with a YouView box from BT and must instead get one of the old BTVision+ box with Sport bundles. BT has made this aspect difficult to spot on their website.
