BT is bringing together BT Infinity, BT TV, Netflix and YouView meaning customers can see Netflix shows, free BT Sport and the latest movies to rent or buy for just £5.99 a month for the first six months.
As well, customers signing up to Netflix with BT TV will see Netflix integrated into their BT bill, allowing them to get all these features in one simple package. The offer also includes BT’s new mini YouView box*, a stylish new set-top box (pictured) which provides access to the YouView service, including up to 70 Freeview TV and radio channels, as well as access to BT TV’s Box Office service for the latest movies, plus free BT Sport.
The new mini YouView box allows viewers to pause and rewind live TV and access Catch-Up TV from the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4 On Demand and Demand Five.
Delia Bushell, managing director of BT TV & BT Sport, said: “Our new package will give customers even more unmissable content. Customers will be able to enjoy must-see Netflix shows and original series like Orange is the New Black and Marco Polo, free BT Sport with live Barclays Premier League, the latest movies to rent or own from BT Box Office, and more Freeview catch-up than Sky. We’re delighted to be offering our customers a wide range of must-see content at a great value price and with the convenience of a single bill."
The new package follows last week's announcement that BT will also carry Sky Sports 1 and 2 on its BT TV YouView boxes.
