Think I will stick to Vipbox, works well enough for free.

The difference between genius and stupidity is; genius has its limits.

Which contradicts what I have asked BT today on the existing customers NOT needing to extend contract.

guide contradicts what andrew said about streaming been free with no new commitment.

also the guardian has prices wrong they make it sound like unlimited FTTC is £16.

I am not going to argue Guardian's case here, as only posted a link to something that I thought was useful, however looking at the BT Sport's page I can see this wording under header " Already have BT Broadband?" - BT customers with the Sky Digital Satellite Platform. Just add BT Sport to the Sky Digital Satellite Platform for FREE. This will start a new 12-month contract of your current BT Broadband package.

Although it does not say anything similar under "BT Broadband customers", the same may still apply. It would be very controversial to apply different conditions to existing customers depending on how they can/want access BT sport.

IMPORTANT PART:

That is for BT customers who want to view the channels on the Sky Satellite settop box.
NOT The website or smartphone app.

Why the 12 month for the Sky viewing option, probably because of the cost of the transaction on the Sky platform.

If you have broadband from BT with less than 12 months left, you need to recontract.

If you have broadband from BT with more than 12 months left, you don't need to recontract.

Not to view the website or smart phone app streams.

The 12 months refers to Sky TV channels and BT TV viewing options.
