BT Adds BSkyB Movie Channels to U.K. TV Service

Telco's TV customers get access to Hollywood premieres

LONDON — U.K. telco BT is beefing up its TV offer still further with a multi-year pact with pay TV operator BSkyB to give BT customers access to the 11 Sky Movies channels.

BT will offer Sky Movies for a monthly subscription that customers can add to their existing BT TV package from Oct. 26. The offer will be open to customers of the YouView box and the latest Vision + box.

Customers will be able to access the channels in standard definition both as streamed live channels and on-demand for those with BT Infinity fiber broadband. For customers with regular BT broadband Sky Movies is only available on-demand.

Sky Movies is the U.K.’s most popular subscription movies service giving access to more than 700 different movies on demand, including exclusive premieres from Hollywood studios such as Disney, Fox, Paramount, Sony, Warner Bros. and Universal.

Sky Movies subscribers have access to pics at least 12 months before any online subscription service.

Premieres in October include “Argo,” “Django Unchained” and “Les Miserables.”

BT is plowing about £1 billion ($1.6 billion) into its new sports channels, which puts it head to head with BSkyB’s own sports coverage.
