Full NOWtv offering

Hello

Im new to the community so please forgive me for asking this if it’s an old topic.

I have a non-contract BT YouView Box and have access to NowTV but only the Movie pack.

Ive read the NowTV/BT announcement but am unclear - for non contracted users (ie folk who don’t subscribe to BT or TalkTalk etc) will we be able to get full NowTV access soon - is access to SkySports live content through their passes?

    Hi @stevieboysmiff

    There are 6 combinations here -

    (box branded by BT OR not - Retail/TalkTalk)
    AND
    (used on BT TV OR used on BT as an ISP but not a subscriber OR used on some other ISP)

    for each of which we we need an answer, apart from 1/1 where it must be an obvious Yes.

    As, like so many recent YouView advances this is a BT-led initiative, you may get a better answer on the BT TV forum; certainly worth asking there as well, if you haven’t already.

    Dont worry Sky will want the biggest slice of youview possible. Just like Prime it will available on every box the only exception being the older boxes might miss out.

    Sky have had six years to take the biggest slice of YouView possible. What do you think has kept them from doing that before now?

    And you might think that Netflix would also want the biggest slice possible, but its 5.1 appears only on BT’s T4000, and not on any other YouView boxes.

    While anyone who has a T4000 can get Netflix in 5.1, no matter what ISP they use. Which I suppose makes the 6 combinations above into 9...

    Well, the deal has been announced, at least, if not yet the wider clarification @stevieboysmiff is seeking....
