BT Vision surpasses 500k subscribers

Thursday, November 11th 2010 by Cable.co.uk

Some 24,000 consumers signed up to BT Vision in the three months ending on September 30th 2010.

The number of people signed up to BT Vision rose between July and September 2010.

According to the telecoms giant's financial results for the quarter, its digital TV service attracted 24,000 new customers over the three months, taking its total subscriber base to 520,000.

Almost a tenth of these people have taken BT's Sky Sports offering, which launched in August in time for the start of the 2010-11 Premier League football season.

People signed up to a BT Vision Value Pack, Broadband and Calls bundle can bolt on Sky Sports 1 or 2 to their accounts for £6.99 per month, or choose both channels for £11.99 per month.

Furthermore, the company revealed there will be "further enhancements" made to its pay-TV proposition before Christmas, including faster high-definition downloads and BT's new 3D service, which was unveiled yesterday (November 10th).

The 3D TV facility will launch later this month with the screening of New York-based dance movie Step Up 3D.

Bear in mind that BT has spent over £30m marketing the Sky Sports options - and yet only 53,000 people have signed up to it.
