BT Enhances Broadband TV Bundles with More Channels and Packages

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 (11:26 am) - Score 6,672

Some of BT’s consumer TV customers have written in to report that the ISP appears to have added five new premium channels to their service (418 Comedy Central Extra, 431 MTV Music, 490 Lifetime, 491 H2 and 542 Movies 24) and this seems to compliment a wider package refresh. TalkTalk customers should also see the channels.

BT’s customers have also been given the choice of four new TV packages and it’s worth noting that their TV Everywhere option, which allows customers to watch a selection of their TV channels on multiple devices (previously this was only included with their separate Extra Box service), is now being included with the new Entertainment Plus package.

The New BT TV Packages

We are excited to announce the launch of our new BT TV offerings. We have listened to your feedback and our new offering has this in mind, compelling content, a box that records and rewinds, and great value for money. As of today, customers will have the choice of 4 great new BT TV packs.

Starter – Our entry-level pack offers subscription-free TV. Customers also receive a YouView box and can watch BT Sport for FREE.

Entertainment Starter – Our mid-tier pack gives BT Infinity customers lots of content for a small monthly price. Through your YouView box, you can watch 20 premium entertainment channels for only £5 a month, with FREE BT Sport included.

Entertainment Plus – Sky TV and Fibre customers could save £250 by switching to our top-tier pack which combines all the features we know you love at a great price. BT Infinity customers get a recordable YouView+ box, 25 premium entertainment channels including FREE BT Sport and can watch on the go through the TV Everywhere App – all this for only £10 a month with FREE activation.

Entertainment Max – Our biggest entertainment bundle is available exclusively to existing BT TV customers with BTInfinity. This pack comes with 34 premium entertainment and kids channels and FREE BT Sport for only £15 a month, as well as HD Extra and TV Everywhere.

You can still tailor your package by choosing from a great range of bolt-ons, including HD Extra from just £3 a month and big-screen access to all of Netflix’s great content from just £5.99 a month with the first month free! Standard broadband customers will still be able to take subscription-free Starter with YouView, or for just £5 a month they can get a recordable YouView+ box with Essential.

As usual BT’s TV options come with an included YouView (IPTV) set-top-box, which also gives you access to all of the usual Freeview HD, video on demand and catch-up TV services that people have come to expect. Now if only somebody would add WiFi capability.

    Now if only BT did fibre-optic broadband, too, that would be something 🙂

      If only posters would read the posting rules that include no trolling

    Just a reminder that the letter ‘T’ in ‘BT’ stands for ‘Telecommunications’, not ‘Television’, so BT customers can rightfully expect telecom services from that company. The TV-bit, based on FreeView, doesn’t require a BT service. So this news item about BT bragging to throw in more TV channels will come as a joke to many users who can’t get decent telecom services, the latter is where BT’s primary focus should be!

    Though I am afraid there will be some BT-trolls here who simply won’t comprehend this.

    Neil is very excited to watch such riveting TV as Dance Moms on Lifetime.

    1. Avatar GNewton says:

      People could do that without being BT trolls!

    2. Avatar FibreFred says:

      Maybe Neil is I can’t speak for him as I am not him nor do I have BT Tv

    3. Avatar PortyNews says:

      Why would you even assume i was in any manner referring to you? Your name is obviously “fred”.

    When I asked BT as an existing BT TV essential customer could I now get the BT entertainment package instead which is the same price and includes 20 premium channels I was told not available for existing customers and would cost me £10 as BT BT are penalising loyalty
