Extra box for BT TV

June 3, 2014 10.23 Europe/London By Julian Clover

BT YouViewBT is giving customers the option of having two YouView+ boxes in different rooms in their homes, but a number of restrictions are being applied.

The Extra Box will mirror the subscription of the primary set; boxes are being priced at £99 with an additional £5 per month subscription also payable.

Alex Green, Director of TV for BT, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer BT customers the added flexibility of having two YouView+ boxes in their home. Over the past year, we have transformed our service by introducing pay TV channels delivered in fantastic HD quality on our market-leading YouView+ box. We believe this offers the best quality TV experience and the most competitive bundle with fibre in the market.”

Customers looking to opt for the extra box will need to have a line speed of greater than 34 Mbps, this says BT will cover the majority of Infinity customers.

There is also a restriction of just one extra box, while Sky Movies will not be available on the second unit.
