Consumers are set to benefit with the launch of an unbeatable value £5.99 a month package that brings together BT Infinity, Netflix, BT TV and a free YouView box, all under one bill.

Customers signing up to Netflix with BT TV will see Netflix integrated into their BT bill, a first for Netflix in the UK, enabling BT customers to benefit from the simplicity of Infinity Broadband, BT TV and Netflix in one complete package. Customers already signed up to Netflix will also be able to watch on their BT TV set top box.

The new offer includes BT’s new mini YouView box*. This small and stylish new set top box provides access to the YouView service, including up to 70 Freeview TV and radio channels, as well as access to BT TV’s Box Office service for the latest movies, plus free BT Sport. The new mini YouView box allows viewers to pause and rewind live TV and access Catch-Up TV from the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4 On Demand and Demand Five.

With instant access to Netflix from their TV box, BT TV customers can watch a wide variety, and always growing, selection of TV series, films and more, including the highly anticipated new Netflix original series Marco Polo which premieres on 12 December.

Other complete TV series available on Netflix include Breaking Bad and Homeland and Netflix original series such as Orange is the New Black, House of Cards and BoJack Horseman. Films available on Netflix include The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Skyfall and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, with more titles being added all the time.

Delia Bushell, Managing Director of BT TV & BT Sport said: “Our new package will give customers even more unmissable content. Customers will be able to enjoy must-see Netflix shows and original series like Orange is the New Black and Marco Polo, free BT Sport with live Barclays Premier League, the latest movies to rent or own from BT Box Office, and more Freeview catch-up than Sky. We’re delighted to be offering our customers a wide range of must-see content at a great value price and with the convenience of a single bill.”

“Following on from the announcement last week that BT will be allowed to carry Sky Sports 1 & 2 on its BT TV YouView boxes, there has never been a better time to take up BT’s fantastic new TV service.”

The £5.99 package is based on BT Infinity being offered for free for the first six months along with the BT TV Starter Pack. BT Infinity will then be £15 a month taking the cost of the bundle, including access to Netflix, to £20.99*.
