How To Watch BT TV

BT TV Box

You’ll get a clever BT TV Box included with your BT TV service. This allows you to watch more than 70 channels from Freeview, along with the television channels included in your BT TV subscription.

You can pause, rewind and record live television on your BT TV Box with up to 300 hours of built-in storage (up to 600 hours if you have the BT TV Box Pro on the VIP TV package).

The BT TV Box also allows you to use applications including BBC iPlayer, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and more.

For more information about the BT TV Box, see BT’s official website.

BT TV App & Website

When you sign up for the BT TV service, you’ll get instant access to the BT TV app and website. This allows you to watch the channels in your BT TV subscription on a laptop, smartphone or tablet. You can watch the channels straight away, even before your BT TV box is installed. You can also use the app and website to remotely schedule recordings on your BT TV box.

If you have the Big Sport package, you’ll get a NOW Sports Membership included in the price. This allows you to use the NOW application to watch the Sky Sports channels on your smartphone and tablet.

Switching to BT

If you’re currently using a different broadband or TV provider, it’s easy switching your service to BT.

You should start by ordering your new broadband and TV service from BT’s website. When you do this, BT will give you a switchover date for the service (typically for around two weeks time). BT will then contact your old provider to take over your service, unless you’re a Virgin Media customer in which case you’ll need to contact them directly.

In advance of your new BT TV and BT Broadband service going live, you’ll be sent a BT TV box and a BT Broadband Smart Hub. You’ll need to connect up both of these devices on the go-live date to complete the setup of your service.

For step-by-step instructions on how to switch to BT, please select your current broadband provider from the list below:
