Bt Sport Coverage

Recommended Posts

There has to come sometime in the future that you can just pay for the programme you want to watch and not take programmes that you have no interest in .You already have Box Office for films which you can pay extra for . The same applies to WWE wrestling big events and pay to view fight nights. So why not for Speedway Grand Prix's

I now have no interest in Football now due to the overkill Last night BT had the champions league on live. Not one match but three. After all you can only watch one of those matches.at a time

When I cancel I will never renew again and will have no problem watching live streams on the internet or on Mobdro

I found that many GP's are on YouTube almost as soon as they have finished

Eventually Sky and BT will have to change their pricing policies otherwise they face very serious problems in the very near future

Also BT offering a pittance of £3000 to televise a live Speedway match in UK is just a joke and should be chucked out without a second thought. That means for the cost of one live football match would be the same cost as showing live Speedway for the next ten years

Same as me, I'm cancelling sky sports in a couple of weeks when my deals up. £300 saved I think. And cancelling BT sport when that's up and watching the gps when they appear on you tube

i joined BT early March this year. Whilst I had the BT app and could watch the first 5 gps on my mobile phone casr to a TV (not good viewing) it was early August when broadband went live, telephone SIX weeks later (BT engineer fault). Not happy at that point, not been offered any compensation, To top it all, I find my latest bill had £129.99 on it for engineer to fix the fault (highlighted earlier). When fast fibre was fitted Aug 2nd, the engineer put the my telephone into the wrong connection point - BT admitted their fault and that I wouldnt pay for it, but there it is on the invoice. Too many BT errors/delays etc. With the price increase BT announced I could leave, but other suppliers cant offer fast fibre yet (Im running 52mbps, others can offer me 1-2mbps). Seems when BT move into an area with fast fibre they keep hold of it for 6 months I am told. Any one else experienced that.

If I can get fast fibre from another supplier in March when my 12 mot=nth contract is up I will be ditching BT, that will be the 2nd time in 6 years, and probably the last time. Why keep putting up with poor service.

Are you in a Virgin area,if you are then you can get the E/L bundle which includes BT sport, I pay 64.50p per month and have Phone, free calls all weekend, broadband (100MB) E/L TV bundle which includes all BT Sports channels.

Virgin miles away from us. I am surprised that we got fast fibre, couldnt believe it when talking to Openreach engineers showed me the gubbins in a box in the ground. We are about 1.5 mile from the nearest green box, and the last cluster of homes from the Chester cabling down the main road.

Just got Plusnet unlimited fibre & line rental £22.99 a month & Plusnet TV £5 a month. Eurosport, BT sport 1 & Freesports included as standard & then I'll be adding the remaining BT sport channels for May - Oct only, which will be just £5 extra in those months.

I was with Plusnet, they are a subsidery of BT, and was ok with them, but they couldnt and still cant offer me fast fibre - in fact no more then 1.5mbps, so no good for me. Am hoping by next March, when BT contract ends I can go over to Plusnet.

 

They do a very good deal with a sim only contract for mobiles. I pay £10pm (no contract, can finish with 1 month notice) and I get 1000 minutes, unlimited text and 5gb data for £10pm

 

Noodles, I been on Plusnet website recently and cant find details of their TV package. Whats it about?? and I wonder why its not on their website??

The youview+ box is the same one you get with BT by the looks of it

Sort of, it depends on what BT TV package you have. The Plusnet youview+ box is the same 500gb youview+ box you get on the BT TV middle package. If you have the BT TV top package you get the 1tb ultra version.

 

However Plusnet TV will work on any youview box. I have kept my BT TV ultra box as my main box downstairs & Plusnet TV is working just fine through it. I then put the Plusnet box they sent me upstairs in the bedroom.

Having just recently read about the new schedule for live football matches, it appears from season 2019 live maches will be screened every Saturday night at 7.45pm .

No doubt, Speedway, along with everything else will need to have a rethink. No TV company will screen speedway instead of the football.... whether it be SGP or not...

THE Chese is right ...very limited number of games and no idea yet whether they will be on Sky or BT. There is little evidence that soccer matches have any significant effect on viewing figures for speedway on at the same time.

BT Sport have four channels to fill at that time. Sky have more. Are you really saying that they will not show anything on the other channels whichever gets the contract for this handful of games? Of course they will show other sport and there's no reason why speedway would miss out. This year there were several occasions where a 6 pm SGP programme clashed with the second half of a 5.30 Premier League football match on BT.
