BT TV Channels
BT TV allows you to watch all of the Freeview channels available in your area and then add to that selection with the various bolt-ons.
What channels are on BT TV?
Each BT TV package gives you all of the available Freeview channels in your area as long as you’ve got a working rooftop aerial that can receive the signal. The channel list can vary, but the majority of the core channels like BBC One, BBC Two, ITV1, Channel 4 and Channel 5 are available everywhere.
Thanks to the technology of digital TV, more channels can be broadcast, so there is a huge range of sister stations which are like spin-offs of the major channels. These include BBC Three, BBC Four, ITV2, ITV3, E4 and Film4.
BT TV Freeview Channels
The Freeview channels that come with BT TV will be the same as or similar to the ones you'd get with a Freeview box, but BT TV adds a library of on demand and catch-up content to your service, as well as the option of bolt-ons.
There is nothing you can do about changing the Freeview channels available to you, short of moving house!
BT TV HD Channels
A selection of free-to-air HD channels are available as part of any BT TV package, and if you choose TV Entertainment then you can add extra HD channels through a bolt-on.
BT TV and BBC iPlayer
BT TV customers can access BBC’s popular iPlayer through their TVs. The user-friendly, on demand service started online, but a TV version is now available with almost all the same BBC programmes from the web version.
BBC iPlayer has a library of programmes from the last week, including sport, comedy, drama, documentaries, music and more ready to view at the touch of a button.Find out more
