BT customers can enjoy their BT TV subscription
in two rooms, thanks to the networks Extra Box service. Customers
can apply for a second YouView+ box for just £5 extra a month plus
£99 up front.
The second box will have all the functionality of the first one,
including seven day catch up TV, rewinding and recording live TV
and full access to any live channel subscriptions you signed up
Currently, only BT Infinity broadband
customers with download speeds of up to 38Mb and above will be able
to take advantage of the second box. This is probably to ensure a
reliable connection to the live channels streamed directly from the
web. While standard broadband might struggle with two on going
streams, a superfast fibre broadband service will have no problem
displaying both in crystal clear clarity.
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.
