BT launch new TV packages

BT-A

“Life doesn’t stand still from month to month, so we don’t believe our customers’ TV should either. Our new range of TV packs bring together the best premium services, fully loaded with a wide range of award-winning shows, the best live sports in stunning 4K and the latest must-see films – all with the flexibility to change packs every month – with quick and easy search to find what you want to watch. So now with a click of a button you can take out the Big Sport package to catch the top Premier League fixtures one month and swap it for VIP for a rainy school holiday with the family the next.” -Marc Allera, CEO BT Consumer Division. BT TV helps customers get to their favourite content quickly with integrated voice and text search across all channels – removing the need to remember which show is on which channel or streaming service. There’s also no out-of-contract price rises, so no bill-shock after the end of the 24 months.

BT to chase the Netflix generation by offering customers flexible television packages

NFLX BT-A

Sky's Now TV has been fully integrated into BT's packages for the first time. BT has announced that customers will be able to buy flexible subscription packages to its sports and entertainment TV channels as it comes under growing pressure from online streaming sites like Netflix. The telecoms giant and broadcaster says consumers will be able to change their deals on a month-by-month basis depending on their changing tastes. So they can switch from a sport package that allows them to watch any UEFA Champions League match they want, to an Entertainment package where viewers can tune into the latest miniseries on Sky Atlantic. If they wish to watch The Irishman or The Crown on Netflix, they have the option of a 30-day bolt-on worth £5.99. Prices at BT start from £10 for an Entertainment Package, while those with deep pockets who are both movie and sports buffs can pay the £60 VIP rate to access all BT Sport and Sky Cinema channels.

BT Sport vows to ‘shake up’ UK TV market with new content packages - SportsPro Media

BT-A

UK pay-TV broadcaster BT has announced its intention to ‘shake up’ the British TV market by offering a range of new pay-monthly content packages that include access to live sports programming. Five new packages, spanning TV shows, entertainment, movies and sport, will now be offered on a monthly basis as the broadcaster continues its move away from a traditional pay-TV bundle in a bid to court consumers who prefer more flexible streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. The new packages include a UK£15-per-month ‘Sport’ bundle, which comprises all four existing BT Sport channels, and the UK£40-per-month ‘Big Sport’ offering, which includes BT Sport as well as all 11 Sky Sports channels and Now TV, Sky Sports’ existing over-the-top (OTT) streaming service. BT Sport holds the UK broadcast rights to a number of premium sports properties, including the Premier League, Uefa Champions League, Premiership Rugby, the UFC and professional boxing. Until now, BT has used that costly rights portfolio to entice consumers into long-term contracts that include broadband and telephony services.

Is it finally time to buy shares in BT for that fat dividend?

BT-A

The BT (LSE: BT.A) share price has been drifting lower for just over four years now. I know talking about share price movements seems a little shallow when great investing is all about fundamental analysis. But if you’d been holding the shares since the decline began at the end of 2015, the almost 70% plunge since then would have wiped out a serious amount of your invested capital. I said then that “it’s getting close to revisiting the low of 158p it set last August.”. However, here we are just under a month later and the price is around 153p, as I write. The post Is it finally time to buy shares in BT for that fat dividend?

BT customers will see broadband and mobile rise 1.3%

BT-A

Those who signed a contract after 11 January 2019 are likely to be affected, however, anyone starting or renewing a broadband, landline or mobile monthly contract before this date won't be affected as many of the older contracts don't have these terms. If customers signed up or renewed their contract with BT since 17 January 2020, they also won't be affected but their price will rise in line with the CPI in March 2021. 'We have also launched our team of Home Tech Experts to provide in-home support, and we've brought BT back to the high street across the UK.'. EE is increasing prices for customers by 2.2 per cent but this time in line with December's RPI inflation figure, affecting all pay monthly users from the end of March. Nick Baker, mobiles and broadband expert at Uswitch.com, said: 'The 1.3 per cent hike could come as a shock to many who are still within their minimum contract term and don't expect their bill to go up until their deal ends.
