 Watch online streams or go the pub would be my advice, mate. I've never received such a load of bollocks in my life, told them as much and asked them to cancel my subscription. They offered me a reduced price, I said no and then they charged me for the next three months after anyway. Utter fucking wankers and I'm not the only person it's happened to.

Worth it for the goalshow during the champions league day we aren't playing :D

Can't wait for the 3pm ban to be fucked off so they can have the same for all weekend games.
We already have shit in the country, and the game of Liverpool fills life with joy. Thanks

Worth it

22 a month on top of Sky.

Not sure "worth it" is the right words.

By "with BT" what do you mean? You have BT TV instead of Sky or BT internet?

I'm genuinely clueless about getting the best deals, looking to change that.

I got the deal when I signed up for internet,been with them years now and always threaten to leave and end up getting cracking deals,prior to the recent price increase I got it (sport) for free but that changed in august when I had to start paying for it after they added the new content,have the bt box.

Managed to get unlimited mobile minutes,texts and only 500mb data for 5 per month (5 discount because I have BB),you just have to lie when you call them and say so & so are offering me this.

Also don't accept what they first offer you and mention that you will have a think about it and ring back,then say actually if you ring me back you will get the commision,they will then really try to get you the best deal.You never get the best deal on the first phone call.I need to do it all again in November when this contract runs out.

If you have BT Internet (and landline I think, but not 100%).

Just phone round and say you are looking at changing, whats your best deal. You will be told by whatever company that this is the best deal and might not be available tomorrow (when youve said I'll have to think about it) dont worry, its bullshit to get you to sign there and then. Also phone your currant provider saying you are deliberating leaving as you can get the same/similar cheaper elsewhere (do that after you have found out what other deals you can get so you can back up your claim of cheaper elsewhere). They will magically give you a much better deal than you are on now!
We may sign Salah, but I'll show my arse in the middle of town if we sign one of VVD or Keita. Not gonna happen.

Yeah it is just them trying to get their commission,if you offer for the person you are speaking with to ring you back at an agreed upon time they won't try the hard sell and they will also be more inclined to get you the best deal possible.

Have a list of all the current deals but also lie about what discount they agreed to give you.When I called BT after the recent sport changes the guy I spoke with was shocked by what I was paying for both my internet and mobile,I managed to get unlimited fibre including line rental for 28pm and they gave me unlimited mobile minutes and texts because I lied about another offer.

The deal before the last one I actually put in motion moving to talktalk,had them contact bt to let them know about the change and everything,BT then phoned me up and offered me a deal that was too good to turn down,they then contacted talktalk to let them know that I no longer wanted to move.

I am on a Sky contract for unlimited broadband, line rental and free-to-air tv through my Sky Plus box, after cancelling my full Sky subscription. Cheap at 12.40; the guy swore it was a mistake when I called afterwards but said they would honour it.

Not having any football was driving me mad, but then the BT offer came through email via LFC right before our Champions League group games started. First 6 months free, next 6 months regular price, 12 month contract. Averages out at 13.50 per month for full BT Sport in HD through my Sky box, and skewed for 6 month's time. Felt like a decent deal, and decent timing.

I've actually been quite impressed with the BT coverage; much better than when they first started out. I think with us in the Champions League I would rather have BT Sport than Sky Sports, given a straight choice. European Football, plus FA Cup, and one game on the weekend (which frankly suits me having a young family...I couldn't really get away with 2-3 full games these days anyway) and it's a pretty attractive package.

Sky are right to be worried; finally there is a challenge that really could threaten their model. The next TV coverage contract will be a tightrope walk for them; too much either way and they could be in serious bother.
The eternal silence of these infinite spaces frightens me

Deffo mate. I didnt know you could get them to call you back though. Top tip...worth remembering.

Oh yes. Defiantly tell them porkies about what other companies have offered. Always helps.

Ahhh thats cracking. Did you do that knowing Talk Talk would get in touch with BT and theyd get in touch with you?

Yeah the person at TalkTalk said that they would contact them and then BT would ring me to confirm that I was switching,BT then made me a silly offer and told me that they would contact TalkTalk to let them know I would no longer be moving.

A few years ago all you needed to do was say that you would be leaving and they (BT not sure about others) would sort out a better deal than advertised,that seems to have changed now and you have to actually put it in motion.

Yeah. You have to actually be prepared to go through with it but 98% they'll come back with a better offer, even if it's days later.

Love BT Sport's European Football show with goals as they go in. Having non-arsehole pundits helps.

Probably not a popular opinion around here but I've enjoyed their footballing pundits. Gerrard, Owen, Ferdinand, Lampard, Scholes, Gary Lineker, Steve McManaman ect... They just seem upbeat fellas who enjoy the game and its light hearted which I prefer imo. Really enjoyed Lampard, Gerrard and Ferdinand talking about why England Golden Generation failed.  Great watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRdbUfcBPZw

So Sky now (or to be) available on BT and vice versa so no need for both? Only watch the football anyway as 999 channels of poop really

The BT Sports app is brilliant.

Highlights, goals, incidents, all highlighted on the timeline.. click on them and you can see them and from any angle too...

Very impressive.. makes sky go look very very poor..

The other good thing is you don't have to register devices like Sky Go/Now TV. That means I can fire it up on my tablet, phone, laptop or via chromecast perfect if you are at a mates house. Found out yesterday that chromecast on Now TV counts as a device, even if your tablet is registered (I already have 4 devices registered). Whilst that technically makes sense (Chromecast makes a request for the stream) its a bit sneaky from Sky.

The only negative with the BT Sport app is it won't let you use the enhanced player with chromecast which means you can't pause/rewind. Also the app seems to go into a fit when the 5:30 game ends before the 8pm discussion show starts.

I've just renewed BT infinity/TV for another 2 years, that covers a ton of games just a shame they love putting Utd on so much. Just going to sign up for the odd month here and there on Now TV if there are any particularly good months.
