BT Vision adds ITV shows to catch-up TV serviceITV's shows join BT's BBC, C4 and Five line-up

20 November 2008

BT Vision has announced the launch of ITV programmes on its Replay subscription service. The move will see programmes like The X Factor, Emmerdale and Coronation Street available on-demand from December.

The catch-up TV service currently shows popular programmes from the BBC, Channel 4 and Five the week after they appear on TV. You can view this content whenever you like for seven days.

To access BT's Replay pack, you'll also need to subscribe to a standard viewing pack. This means you'll need to pay an additional monthly fee of £8-10, depending on the standard viewing pack you choose.

See our online guide for more information on BT Vision and other digital TV services.

BT Vision on-demand

The BT Vision service shows Freeview channels, plus on-demand content via your broadband connection.

Additional content is split into TV show, Sport, Kids, Music and Film viewing packs.

Programmes on these packs are available on a pay-per-view basis, or you can choose to get unlimited access to any pack for a monthly fee.

A limited number of films are also available in high definition (HD). To learn more about HD see our guide on high definition TV explained.

Accessing BT Vision

In order to access BT Vision, you need BT broadband. You’ll also need an active landline and a BT Home Hub.

BT now does a phone and broadband bundle for £26.49 a month, but you are tied to an 18-month contract on this deal. Separate line rental and broadband packages are available from BT on 12-month contracts.

The BT Vision Personal Video Recorder (PVR) allows you to record up to 80 hours of normal TV. It costs between £0-60, depending on the viewing packs you subscribe to.
