EE TV comes on a choice of Entertainment, Big Entertainment, Sport, Big Sport & Full Works plans. See the channels included on each EE TV plan.

In the UK, EE TV is the new name for BT TV. You can get EE TV, together with BT broadband or EE home broadband, for a combined price that starts from £45.99 per month (annual price rises apply). This gives you up to 145 live TV channels on the EE TV Box Pro. Alternatively, EE broadband customers with EE TV can substitute this for an Apple TV 4K box instead. There are also on-demand shows and movies available from Netflix, NOW and discovery+.

In this article, we’ll look at the latest EE TV plans and what you’ll get on each one. This includes their entertainment-based bundles (Entertainment and Big Entertainment) and their sport-based bundles (Sport and Big Sport). We’ll also look at the best EE TV deals and the inclusive EE TV box.

Compare EE TV Packages

In the UK, EE now offers a range of flexible TV plans, with prices starting from £45.99 per month for fibre broadband and TV. Until December 2023, the EE TV service was previously known as BT TV.

To start with, you’ll need to choose a fibre broadband plan (up to 67Mbps) or a full fibre broadband plan (up to 900Mbps) from either BT or EE. Once you’ve done that, you can add one of the following TV plans:

  • Entertainment: This is the most popular plan on EE TV. It gives you access to 120+ live TV channels including Sky Atlantic and other Sky Entertainment channels. You’ll also get Netflix and discovery+ Basic included. If you upgrade to Big Entertainment, you’ll get the Sky Cinema channels as well.
  • Sport: The most popular plan for sports lovers. The Sport plan gives you all 4 TNT Sports channels, along with Eurosport and discovery+ Premium. If you upgrade to the Big Sport plan, you’ll get the Sky Sports channels on top of this as well.
  • Full Works: Previously known as VIP TV, this is EE’s top-of-the-range TV plan. It gives you everything that’s on the ‘Big Entertainment’ and ‘Big Sport’ plans. Alongside the 145+ live TV channels, you’ll also get Netflix Standard, discovery+ Premium and the NOW HD Boost.

The EE TV Box Pro relies on a television aerial to receive most of these channels. You’ll therefore need a good television aerial in order to pick up these channels. If you don’t have an easily accessible or reliable aerial connection, about 40 of the above channels can also be received through your broadband connection (when using the box in internet mode).

If you’re an EE broadband customer, you can choose to have the Apple TV 4K box instead of the regular EE TV Box Pro. This doesn’t support television aerial connections. However, you’re still able to watch selected Freeview channels over your broadband connection (in internet mode).

Entertainment Channels

If you choose the EE TV Entertainment plan, you’ll get access to Sky Atlantic and other Sky Entertainment channels through a NOW Entertainment membership (worth £9.99 per month).

You’ll also get Netflix Basic included (worth £6.99 per month), giving you unlimited HD-quality streaming without any adverts on one device at a time.

There’s also discovery+ Basic (worth £3.99 per month) included for documentaries and reality TV.

This comes with discovery+ Premium (worth £29.99 per month), along with the EE TV Box Pro. For access to all of the Sky Sports channels, you can upgrade to a Big Sport plan from £74.99 per month.

There’s a 24-month contract on all EE TV plans. However, the plans are flexible and can be changed month-to-month (e.g. if you want to add or remove some channels).

EE TV Box Pro

On all EE TV plans, you’ll get the EE TV Box Pro included as standard (this was previously known as the BT TV Box Pro). The box will allow you to watch all of your live TV and on-demand content in one place.

You’ll connect the EE TV Box Pro to your home Wi-Fi network, along with a television aerial if available. With that in place, you’ll be able to pause, rewind and record live TV, with enough space for up to 600 hours of recordings on the box. You can also schedule your recordings remotely using the EE TV app.

Alongside the recording features, the EE TV Box Pro also allows you to access on-demand content from a range of apps including BBC iPlayer, ITVX, NOW, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and more. Some of these services are free-to-air (e.g. iPlayer and ITVX), whereas others may require an additional subscription, if this isn’t already included in your plan.

The EE TV Box Pro has has full support for Dolby Atmos surround sound, along with 4K HDR content (e.g. for watching TNT Sports Ultimate in 4K Ultra HD).

If you’re an EE broadband customer, there’s the option to substitute your EE TV Box Pro for a Apple TV 4K box instead. If you choose the Apple TV 4K option, you won’t have the ability to store recordings on your box, or to connect it to a television aerial for live TV. However, you’ll still be able to stream live TV channels through a special app on the box. In addition, you’ll be able to use Apple TV apps, and there’s six months of Apple TV+ included. For this reason, it might be preferable if you’re already bought in to the rest of the Apple ecosystem.

If you’d like to watch TV in multiple rooms at the same time, you can add an EE TV Box Mini. This will cost an extra £10 per month if you’re a BT Broadband customer. Alternatively, there’s no extra cost when you take EE TV on EE home broadband (for up to two additional EE TV Box Minis).

More Information

For more information about EE TV, please see the EE TV website. To use EE TV, you’ll need to have either BT Broadband or EE home broadband.

    absolutely rubbish same old channels as bt it’s all the same all the channels I have the itv3+1 doesn’t start until 9pm I wouldn’t recommend EETV to anyone sorry but not happy

  • Sorry to say but BT is years behind virgin when it comes to TV technology they can’t get a box that records more than 2 channels. Come on BT come out of dark ages and come into the 21st century’.

  • Ronald Deasley said:

    Yesterday the 26th December sky sports put free to watch football on sky one when l went to channel 340 on my bt box no match was shown

  • Really beginning to regret BT TV. The channels on NOw TV app are not accessible through the main guide. Cannot record any on Now as it says function not allowed from an app. Also the Now guide only tells you what is on now and next….not later.

    • Hi Stefan,
      I believe you can still purchase a NOW TV Entertainment Pass separately from Now TV, which can be used through the Now TV app on your BT TV box.
      Ken

  • Do you get any channels other than the now tv channels AMC and freeview channels on the BT entertainment package ? channels like Eurosport, TLC ,Lifetime, crime and investigation etc ? Thanks.

      • Thanks for the reply,No point in going with BT then the Now TV broadband and entertainment packages including any time phone calls are significantly cheaper. I think BT have shot themselves in the foot with the Entertainment and Big Entertainment packages. BT are already discounting the packages, half price after just under a couple of months since launch they can`t be selling many.

    • Dean porter replied:

      Hi Andrew all the channels are integrated and on the guide so you can pause rewind and record ect any of the sky channels

  • I have just moved from sky and am loving the freedom of bttv . Great little box , I think the vip package is great value for money if you compare it to sky . .. only fault I have is not being able to start a movie from the beginning when watching the live movie channels like you can on the now tv app.

    • Yes up to 2 not as much but watching on demand saves space i would only record channels that on demand has ads for e.g All4 and ITV

  • Geoffrey Dobberson said:

    Hi,
    Do BT shareholders get a discount? I only watch MotoGP, as far as sport is concerned, is there a package for this only?
    Thanks.

    • Hi Geoffrey,
      Unfortunately, I don’t believe there’s a discount for BT shareholders, or a way to get MotoGP on it’s own.
      Sorry!
      Ken
