BT has launched a multi-room YouView service, allowing users to buy a second box for £99 as the number of channels offered increase.
Restricted to customers with an internet line speed of greater than 34Mbps, the additional box will include the same channel subscriptions and additional packages as the main device in the house.
“We are delighted to be able to offer BT customers the added flexibility of having two YouView+ boxes in their home. Over the past year, we have transformed our service by introducing pay TV channels delivered in fantastic HD quality on our market-leading YouView+ box. We believe this offers the best quality TV experience and the most competitive bundle with fibre in the market,” said Alex Green, director of TV for BT.
“Our content line-up is growing by the month and offers everything from premium sport to movies to download to own. Our recent developments have been extremely well received by customers and we now have a very strong foundation for growth as we carry on expanding our service.”
Customers will be required to take out a 12-month Extra Box subscription for £5, and households will be restricted to two boxes per household.
