    Which 5 channels are they losing?
  • Take BT sport through Sky
    They did say there was to be a swop early this year i.e. bt got sky movies and sky got bt sport, now they are saying it has been delayed.
    Any idea when this will take place ?.

    last year I signed up to BT broadband 12 months package with free 18 months BT sport package. Now they are proposing to charge me £1 per month for my free offer. But if I sign up for another 12 month broadband package I may be be able to get bt sport free for another 18 months (Is anybody stupid enough to believe them having reneged on original deal?)

    trying to cancel my bt sport after being notified of the price rise. 30 minutes in and still not managed to get through. Apparently they are very busy right now. I wonder how many are leaving?

    Sunday morning is a good time to phone BT .


    You decide what you want and alternative suppliers .Also work out how long left on your contract and if its worth paying off.

    Phone Bt say cancel .
    Tell them due to the price rise you want top cancel the TV/ Sports package.Mention also that you will not be renewing your BB contract when that ends .
    See what they offer .
    A price rise over the last three years has always meant a lower price for me after negotiating .


    PS also work out what its worth to you for a particular sport.
  • I signed up for BB in October and got BT sport for £12 month 18 month contract through Sky. Now increasing that by £4 a month. Rather a large % increase for an extra 10 premier league games.
  • Just rang them, I don't want BT sport and only had it because it was free. I've been told that I cannot leave that part of my contract and have to pay a £40 or something fee. They can continue to let me have it for free until Jan 2020 but I will be in a new 18 month contract.
