BT Hints at YouView IPTV Service for PlusNet Broadband Users

BT Group’s CEO, Gavin Patterson, has hinted that its YouView (IPTV) based broadband TV service could soon find its way into the hands of PlusNet’s customers.

At present customers of PlusNet, which is owned by BT, do not have access to a TV product but they can gain access to the BTSport content by paying a slightly reduced price (here). Sadly the service is currently only available to subscribers via the Sky Digital TV (Satellite) platform.

However, speaking in a recent comment to the FT (paywall), Patterson said that he was looking to make the YouView service available via PlusNet in order to help them compete with TalkTalk (i.e. a low-cost focus). “Providing a TV alternative … for Plusnet is definitely part of our plans,” said Patterson.

It’s too early to say what form this might take but PlusNet would almost certainly want to put its own particular branding and touch on such a product offering. PlusNet retains some independence from BT and therefore likes to try and do its own thing wherever possible.

    Good news for Plus.Net customers, who have the backing of a big parent but some degree of independence, and a UK based support team. Happy to be with them for over 10 years now, and possibly at least ten more years to come!
