UK ISP BT has announced that they’ve extended their current partnership with the BritBox video streaming service, which among other things means that the provider’s new and existing broadband and TV customers will now also benefit from a free 6-months subscription to the platform.

The new streaming service carries popular British TV shows (from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5) and, after the initial period of free service, subscribers can expect to pay the normal £5.99 a month fee for access via their BT bill. BT customers will also be able to access BritBox content through the BritBox app on smartphones, tablets and a wide range of smart TVs.

Tom Price, BritBox’s Commercial Director, said: “It’s fantastic that BT is making it even easier for their customers to join BritBox, and with this new offer there’s no reason not to give it a try and experience brand-new Spitting Image alongside the best collection of amazing British box sets, films and theatre.”

    I bet that’ll get hordes clamouring to sign up to BT…

      Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    2. David Drozdowski says:

      They only have 25% broadband market share and were the only call centres whose new or existing customers could contact them, speaking in clear English within the UK and Ireland, throughout the whole pandemic, whose network drops out less than Virgin, even if Virgin’s speed averages CAN be better (and even that is changing with Full Fibre), whose standard WiFi router is better than all other ISPs’, who renew contract discounts without a struggle anymore, who provide the most and most flexible TV content at the lowest prices for new customers… I guess BT and their subscribers must be getting pretty damn desperate.

  2. Grazza says:

    Why would anyone pay £5.99 for repeats and why has the BBC created a cut price streaming platform to attempt to compete with an already saturated market?
    The BBC is supposed to be a public state broadcaster, how are they allowed to use the licence fee to create something that is a very poor imitation of those already established platforms when they are threatening to take pensioners to court over unpaid licence fees?
    Just sums up that organisation for me.

    1. Paul. says:

      The BBC are just one of several partners who have their content on the platform. As punters pay £5.99 there’s no license fee money involved. Indeed, the aim is for revenue to be *generated* for the BBC and the other content providers from the subscription fees.

  3. Grazza says:

    No licence fee money involved… really?
    So the costs of start up and admin are being managed with what? Take up is dismal and it’s having to be hawked around free by ISP’s.
    This will raise minimal revenue as anyone in this arena has realised, but hey lets give the BBC the benefit of the doubt for a minute and give them time to announce that any monies raised will go to fund a reduction in the licence for over 75s by say £50 per household.

    I signed up to BT a month ago. The engineer never showed up, his excuse was its not available, no phone call nothing, I phoned there call centre and was lied too about another booking, they then cancelled the next booking to put it 2 weeks in front, I have complained numerous times for a service im paying for but yet to still recieve, absolutely shocking customer service from BT, staff said they would help and be in touch, nothing of the sort, I hope this company collapses.

    “Fantastic” as in “not real” or “unbelievable”?

  8. michael mcshane says:

    They said I would get free Britbox for six months, no help or instructions on how to set up, their help desk said to go by site. That is of no help either

    1. tech3475 says:

      On the BT website, go to TV and under “find and watch TV” there will be a Britbox link.

      On the page go to “ Get six months of BritBox on us” and Select the link under that saying “See our packages”.

  9. michael mcshane says:

    Not by bt.

  10. Blake says:

    Tried tech3475 and it only shows 6 months free for new customers, software up to date. Any ideas? TIA
