BT says it will launch its revamped TV service on 26 October, giving customers “super-fast fibre broadband” and a YouView box for just £18 per month.
New customers who sign up to BT Infinity will receive the YouView box for free.
Customers not in an Infinity enabled area will also be able to get a free YouView box when they subscribe to TV Essential, starting at £4/month but will need to pay a £49 activation fee.
Existing customers can also upgrade to YouView for £49.
In addition to the standard YouView catch-up and on demand offering, BT customers will gain access a BT Vision app offering over five thousand programmes and films.
Customers can register their interest in at www.bt.com/youview and will have the opportunity to be first to place their order during an exclusive window between October 19-26.
Alex Green, director TV, BT Retail, said: “This is a fantastic offer. Customers will now be able to enjoy BT’s super-fast fibre broadband with a YouView box and TV Essential pack all for £18 per month.
“With YouView from BT not only can customers experience a great new way to watch TV they will also be able to access a huge range of on-demand content from BT Vision. The launch of YouView from BT is another piece of exciting news about BT’s plans for TV.”
BT is one of seven equal shareholders in YouView.
