In February 2020 we introduced flexible BT TV packages where you can upgrade, downgrade and select add-ons. These packages are available to new customers and existing customers who choose to re-contract.
This means there could be some changes to the way you watch Sky Cinema on BT TV.
If you joined us for BT TV after 21 February 2020
BT TV customers who have fibre broadband can get access to Sky Cinema with a NOW Cinema Membership as part of our flexible VIP and Big Entertainment packages. If you aren’t on one of these plans, you can add on the NOW Cinema Membership to your TV package, which works as a monthly rolling subscription.
Copper customers on one of our new flexible packages with the NOW Cinema Membership can watch via the NOW app. You won’t be able to watch via the TV Guide on your BT TV box and these channels can’t be recorded.
Watching in HD and via an extra box
If the NOW Cinema Membership is part of your overall TV package, fibre customers can watch in high definition with one of our HD add-ons:
- HD: Watch channels included with your NOW Membership in full HD with NOW Boost, BT Sport in full HD, and up to 4K HDR in the BT Sport app (if you’ve added BT Sport), AMC in full HD.
- HD + 4K: Watch channels included with your NOW Membership in full HD with NOW Boost, BT Sport in full HD, access to BT Sport Ultimate for stunning picture quality up to 4K (4K TV and 4K recordable TV box required), HDR in the BT Sport app (if you’ve added BT Sport), AMC in full HD.
- NOW Boost: Watch your favourite channels included with your NOW Membership in full HD and stream selected channels and content on three devices at the same time.
Get the Extra Box add-on to watch in another room using a second BT TV box.
You can get or remove add-ons by logging-into my BT .
If you were a BT TV customer before 21 February 2020
If you have Sky Cinema as part of your TV package, you will no longer be able to watch these channels from 19 November unless you subscribe to our new NOW Membership. These channels are being removed as we simplify our offerings.
