BT TV Reveal Spec for Smallest YouView+ Set Top Box DTR-T2100

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014 (1:47 pm) - Score 4,908

Customers of BT’s YouView (IPTV) and broadband powered TV service have today been introduced to a much smaller version of their set-top-box (DTR-T2100) device (partly because it doesn’t need a fan), which adopts a similar style to the operators Home Hub 4 and Home Hub 5 routers. But still no built-in WiFi connectivity.

The new YouView+ STB, which has a faster start up time and should feel more responsive to use, will be available for “free” to new BT TV customers. Meanwhile existing customers can upgrade to the new box for a one-off fee of £35.

Take note that BT TV subscriptions start from £5 per month on a minimum 12 month contract, although you also need to pay a £35 activation charge and nearly all of BT’s packages are part of a broadband and phone bundle (bundles start from £15 per month and go up to £33 with an unlimited 76Mbps BTInfinity connection).
