    BT Sport - any other way other than with BT? 7th Aug 18 at 4:08 PM
    I consider myself fairly money savvy and always shop around for the cheapest deals with my utilities etc. However, I feel that BT have me over a barrel and I'm sick of paying their price increases every year! My contract and line rental are both due to expire this month. Line rental is going to cost me 208.80 for another year (on the line rental saver) and at the moment I pay 33.50 a month for broadband and tv (including BT Sport).

    My main problem being that I like to watch MotoGP, which is on BT Sport. At the moment, I have boardband, TV and phone line with BT. I never use the phone lines for calls, in fact I don't even have a phone plugged in. I still want to have unlimited broadband and I'm not overly bothered what TV package I have, other than wanting BT Sport.

    I've looked into various other deals and thought I'd found a good offer with Sky which included FREE line rental. I could add BT sport on afterwards but to do this, they wanted another 27.99 A MONTH!!

    Does anyone have any clever suggestions for a way around BT's rip-off charges?!

    Thanks in advance

    Plusnet?

    5 extra a month for the app which also allows streaming to your TV. They often have deals on to make it half price as well. Only a 30 day contract so you can cancel when you want.

    Line rental is going up 16th sept along with other rises BB TV BT Sport etc .



    You need to work out what watching Moto GP is worth to you .
    Price up Sky Sports + BB and Line rental as a comparison .Apart from PN as posted all i have seen is much much higher prices for BT Sport from non BT ISPs .

    If your contract is up how about trying to get a better price with BT and using this to get BT Sport free https://www.productsandservices.bt.com/sport/?s_intcid=con_intban_btsport_pink_butt&s_cid=con_c ic_aff_affwin_vidAJM_broadband&vendorid=AJM&utm_so urce=Affwin&utm_medium=Ref&utm_campaign=47868&awc= 3041_1533713393_a7baa2c591eed588e7069b978eeb76b3
