BT TV deals direct from BT
The easiest way to find your ideal BT TV package is to get it directly from BT as it has all the options on display and readily available on the website. A crucial issue to note is that you can only sign up to one of the TV packages if you sign up to broadband too - you can already have broadband and sign up for a TV package.
So if you already have your internet with the company, then you're good to go. Alternatively, if you want to take this opportunity to get all your home communication needs with one company, then you'll want to check out our dedicated guide to today's best BT broadband deals. Or, if you already know exactly what broadband deal you want, then simply click here to go directly to the BT website.
There are several BT TV packages available, each designed to different people's preferences, and if that's not enough you get to customise the packages with extra bolt-ons! Keep reading to read all BT TV packages in full.
