Good

Great Equipment, Occasional great shows/films

On Demand content lacks hit shows

BT Vision is the on demand television service from BT. It comes as an add-on package when you take out the BT Broadband Option 3. For a few extra pounds a month you get access to the somewhat large and varied library of films, TV show, music videos, sport and kid shows as well as some other...

Could be cheaper

I have always been a Sky customer. My parents got it when it first came out when I was about 8 and I had loved it ever since. I remember the days then their customer service was second to none and any problems would quickly be sorted with the help of a friendly Scots man. In the last few years it...

Cheap alternative to Sky

You have to have BT Line Rental and Broadband

I decided to start using BT Vision about a year ago after receiving a call from BT offering me a great deal as I was already an existing customer through the broadband and phone line I have with them. The thing that I love most is the On Demand service that comes with BT Vision offering you 1000s...

“BT's TV Dream”

published 22/11/2007

No contracts, high quality On Demand TV

No over run facility on recordings

In my attempt to escape high cost television, without settling for the standard I decided to give BT Vision a try. BT Vision offers a more advanced service that has the basic freeview set up at its foundation. Top Up TV really did not do it for me, it was slow and clunky, and frequent downloads...

The BT Vision package was the only purchase I've ever made after being asked if I was interested in 'some information' on a product (usually code for 'at least 20 minutes of naff scripted sales pitch') and I'm so glad I did. Not only is the service a hell of a lot cheaper than it's competitors...

“Glorified feeview box”

published 23/01/2014

Nice design

Expensive, rubbish channels

I moved into my new house in May and spent ages looking around for good deals on utilities, broadband etc and am usually very good and finding a good deal, but when it came to TV choices I was a bit stuck. I didn't think we could afford SKY as it is notoriously expensive so I thought I would go...

“BT Vision”

on demand, large content, freeview, good prices

that you have no choice of broadband supplier

The DVD sized stylish black box that will sit where your old freeview box used to be BT Vision is relatively new in terms of Sky and Freeview but has gone a long way in the short lifespan of Vision life. Currently just under the half a million customers mark this is set to rocket with the the...

Needs polishing as a service

BT's Vision box is a PVR (Personal Video Recorder) with a difference. 1. You get 2 built in Tuners, allowing you to either a. record 2 channels at once or record 1 channel and watch 1 channel at the same time. There is also the ability to series record, meaning you can setup your BT Vision box to...

“Bt Vision: Seeing past Sky”

published 27/12/2008

Choice, price

Less channels than Sky

I won't go into a long winded review about pricing and technical details regarding BT Vision as prices change and technical details bore me to death. So what I will do is explain why I chose BT Vision over the other main competitor, Sky. With Sky you will get all the main digital channels, you...

“Great in theory”

Great on demand section, good on paper

see review, there are plenty

I have the Bronze package and for just over £13 a month I get around 15 or so "channels" such as MTV, HBO, Warner etc on demand that show programmes or whole seasons of hits such as Friends, Entourage, Sopranos and Lost. There are several big programmes however notable for their absence such as...

“BT Vision - wonderful!!”

published 24/10/2007

On Demand

Noisy fan

BT Vision is a fantastic concept and supposedly the future of TV. With the Digital changeover we're all going to have to have Digital TV of some sort so BT Vision seemed the perfect product for me since I already have my telephone and internet with BT. BT Vision is essentially a freeview box with...

Me and my partner are constantly watching tv/films etc..and we think we have the best package available. We went with BT for our internet and heard about the vision package available.

BT Vision is alledgedly the future of TV. At first glance the 'V-Box' you get for Vision is quite a hefty piece of equipment. Its a lot bigger than your average Freeview box but it houses some nice features. There is an 80GB hard-drive to record from the in-built Freeview reciever. Its a dual...
