BT Vision

What is BT Vision?

BT Vision is a subscription based TV service that was launched in 2006 to rival other subscription based TV providers such as Sky. It essentially is a combination is live TV supplied via a TV aerial and a broadband connection and catch up TV supplied via a broadband connection. BT Vision boasts up to 80 TV and radio TV channels supplied via Freeview plus depending on which TV package you opt for, a whole bunch more of premium content including Sports, Movies, Kids and Documentaries. Some of the subscription based services available are BT Sports, Sky Sports, MTV, Gold, Sky Movies, Netflix and many more as well as High Definition and (HD) Ultra HD TV channels. In 2012 BT Vision switched to the popular Youview platform, which has a seven day backwards compatible TV guide, so if you missed a channel, simply scroll back in the TV guide and press play. Couldn’t be any easier.

How do I get BT Vision?

To receive BT Vision you will need a TV aerial and a broadband connection by connected to a BT Vision box, which could have the ability to pause, rewind, and stop live TV as well as being able to record, store and access TV programmes directly onto the box itself. The BT Vision box would then connect to the TV via a HDMI or Scart connection. To sign up to BT Vision, this would need to be done through BT or third party that supplies this service. Great deals can usually be had when combining BT Vision as part as a telephone and broadband supply. BT Vision has become a great alternative for people wishing to save on an expensive Sky or Virgin media subscription or where these services are not available. It is also great for people who wish to have a little bit more option than what Freeview otherwise offers.
