BT has struck a deal to offer Sony’s UK TV channel to BT Vision and YouView from TV customers.
Both TV platforms offer free aerial delivered digital terrestrial channels alongside optional subscription channels delivered via broadband.
BT’s £7 per month channel pack offers SD versions of some of the UK’s most popular channels including UKTV’s Watch and GOLD and the Universal and SyFy channels.
Unlike rival TakTalk, BT has been unable to secure a deal to offer Sky’s entertainment channels including Sky 1 and Sky Living but does offer customers Sky Movies as a monthly add-on.
It also offers some channels in HD subject to a £3 per month HD fee.
In the UK Sony Entertainment Television offers popular classic hits including Life on Mars, Hustle and Spooks plus a mix of recent and classic movies including the Kevin Spacey film 21 and The Thomas Crown Affair.
The channel will be available to viewers from next week.
