Remember when BT introduced the new premium BTSport TV Pack at the start of this month for an extra £5 (here)? Do you also remember how BT then tried to force that pack onto their existing customers, unless they specifically opted-out? Well Ofcom wasn’t happy and neither were many of BT’s customers.

As expected BT has today revealed the first solid details and price of their new 4K Ultra HD TV package, which claims to include “Europe’s very first live sports Ultra HD channel” (BTSport Ultra HD) and a new 4K capable 1TB YouView (IPTV) set-top-box. But you’ll need a faster than “superfast” broadband speed.

It’s not all about Sport, you see. BT’s YouView (IPTV) based broadband TV service has taken another shot at arch-rival Sky (Sky Broadband) by announcing a new agreement to launch the AMC TV channel in the UK this September 2015, which includes the “exclusive” UK television premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead“.

UK ISP BT has today confirmed that customers of their broadband service, which currently benefit from receiving BTSport TV content for free, will in the future have to pay an extra £5 if they also want to watch European football (Champions League etc.). But it will still be free for BT TV subscribers and there’s a 4K TV channel coming too.

Customers of BT’s broadband bundles, most of which have for the past two years been able to benefit from free BTSport TV content, may be displeased to learn that the free ride could soon be coming to an end and some related content will instead cost an additional fee of £5 (still a lot less than non-BT customers pay).

Sheffield-based Internet provider PlusNet has quietly updated their website to reveal the official launch details for their long awaited YouView (IPTV) based TV service, which is designed to be taken as part of a bundle alongside the ISP’s residential Unlimited Fibre Broadband (FTTC) and phone product.

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.

It’s been around two years since we first heard of PlusNet’s plan to launch a YouView (IPTV) based TV service for their broadband customers, yet the good news is that the official product “will be launching soon“. But it will only be available to their “fibre broadband” (FTTC/P) subscribers.

The on-going war between BT and Sky over broadband and TV content took another expensive leap today after both operators splashed a record amount of cash in order to retain their hold over vital Premier League TV football rights for the 2016/17 to 2018/19 seasons.

The broadband based YouView video-on-demand and catch-up TV (IPTV) service, which is being bundled by a number of ISPs (e.g. BT and TalkTalk) in the United Kingdom and can also be brought separately at retail, has officially branched out into the integrated TV market with Sony’s new 2015 BRAVIA range becoming the first to benefit.

Budget broadband ISP TalkTalk has predictably followed last year’s similar move by BT (here) and made the popular Netflix Internet TV and Movie streaming service available to owners of their YouView (IPTV) based platform, with those who pre-registered for the service being first in line to receive it on their set-top-box.

As predicted last week TalkTalk has this morning confirmed the acquisition of Tesco’s Blinkbox Movies (video streaming) business, but in a more surprising move they’ve also gobbled the supermarket giants budget fixed line broadband (75,000 subs) and phone (20,000 subs) customers. Apparently the assets have been acquired free of debt and as a single transaction for cash.
