BT has announced the launch of a new and bigger on demand subscription service. The first of its kind in the UK, BT Vision Film Club will now offer over 60 films each month – or more than twice the previous number – with 14 films refreshed each week.
Titles are sourced from Picturebox, WarnerFilms, Sony Pictures Television and Film4OD. Film Club is available for £6.99 (€8.08) a month or as an option within BT Vision’s Bronze, Silver and Gold viewing packages. Subscribers can also choose to subscribe to Picturebox or WarnerFilms alone for £4.99 each.
Commenting on the expansion of Film Club, BT Vision’s chief executive Marc Watson said: “We already have an extensive catalogue of over 600 films available in the UK courtesy of our long-term deals with the major Hollywood studios. Now our Value Pack film subscribers will have an even wider choice of titles each week for no extra charge.”
He added: “All of our films are available on-demand, so you won’t have to fit in with a broadcaster’s schedule or miss the first part of the film. You can start it when you are ready and pause or rewind the film whenever you want.”
