Ultra high-definition TV (Ultra HD), also known as 4K TV, is a new broadcasting technology that gives stunning picture quality. It gives you four times the detail of HD as it uses four times as many pixels (8.29m vs. 2.07m pixels), and it displays twice as much information as ordinary HD TV (50 frames per second vs. 25). Plus you get richer, deeper colour as colours are displayed in 10-bit detail vs. 8-bit with ordinary HD.

BT Sport Ultra HD is the UK's first Ultra HD channel and it's exclusive to BT TV. You can access the channel with our Max package. You'll need an ultra HD or 4K TV set, an ultra HD set-top box and Superfast Fibre broadband. See our list of suitable TVs.

AMC is the US studio behind the smash-hit dramas Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Fear the Walking Dead. AMC brings you the hottest new programmes on UK television, so get set for big drama and big thrills.

Watch on BT TV

You can opt in to receive the AMC channel on your BT TV package at any point.

AMC is available to BT TV customers in standard definition on channel 332, and sufficient line speed. BT TV customers will receive access to AMC catch-up content via their BT Player. AMC is a separate opt in bonus channel and may be removed at any time.

Watch on Sky

Sky customers can watch AMC on the Sky Digital Satellite Platform on channel 192 (If you have AMC in HD, this is also on channel 192). To be able to watch AMC on Sky you'll need to have BT Sport on Sky. AMC catch-up content is available to BT TV customers only.

You can watch live sport in your living room on BT TV with both Superfast Fibre and standard BT broadband.

Choose your BT TV package and just include BT Sport when you come to adding extras.

If you have BT TV with Superfast Fibre then you can also get BT Sport in HD by adding HD Extra for a small fee (Max HD and Max 4K have BT Sport in HD included).

All our TV packages come with up to 15 Freeview HD channels, including BBC One HD, BBC Two HD, ITV HD, and 4 HD. You can add BT Sport and AMC in HD, and also watch HD on demand films.

If you've got Entertainment you can add the HD Extra bolt-on, which includes Nat Geo Wild HD, Comedy Central HD and MTV HD.

If you're an existing TV customer and upgrade to Max HD or take Max, you'll get HD Extra included in the price of your package.

You'll need to connect your set-top box to a HD-ready TV with a HDMI cable.

You can get BT TV in a second room with BT TV app Extra, so you and your family can watch and record different shows at the same time. Plus, you can watch TV on the go with the BT TV mobile app, which gives you entertainment channels, kids' channels and BT Sport.

Here's what you need if you want to get BT TV app Extra:

  • Superfast Fibre with speeds of 23Mbps or more
  • 12-month subscription to BT TV App
  • You'll need a TV box or a recordable TV box as your main set-top box. You can choose an extra TV box (that doesn't record) with all our TV packages, or a recordable TV box with Entertainment and Max HD
  • A separate aerial connection for your second set-top box (we can help if you need an aerial or extra connection points)
  • To download the BT TV app from the Apple Store or Google Play shop to watch BT TV on your mobile or tablet.

If you get Entertainment, Max HD or Max 4K, you'll get BT TV App as part of your package. BT TV App allows you to both watch and record BT TV on the go – all you need is the free BT TV app and an internet connection.

If you can watch Freeview channels already (with a reception you're happy with), then your aerial should be fine. But if not, we strongly recommend a rooftop or loft aerial. They give a good service and as many Freeview channels as possible.

The following are not recommended by BT:

  • Portable aerial – portable aerials give poor reception and often you'll get fewer channels
  • Satellite dish – you won't be able to receive Freeview channels on BT TV with a satellite dish.

Other things to consider:

  • If your aerial is more than ten years old, it might not be able to receive Freeview
  • The quality of your Freeview service also depends on how close you live to your nearest transmitter, the direction your aerial is pointing in, the quality of your cabling and your surroundings (e.g. at the bottom of a hill, surrounding trees and/or buildings).

What if I don't have an aerial?

Not to worry, we can install it for you. Just select our aerial installation service, which costs £80, when you start your order. There are a few things to bear in mind before you do:

  • You must be able to receive Freeview channels in your area
  • Your property must be on the UK mainland or in Northern Ireland
  • Your property can be no more than two storeys high
  • Your property can’t be listed or within a conservation area (unless you've been given permission)
  • If you're renting, you'll need permission from your landlord, owner or managing agent.

If you've got BT TV and a Superfast Fibre package, you can add Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Extra.

You can add these channels when you order your packages.

You may cancel your agreement for the service and order for equipment within 14 days from your service start date (or the day you receive your order confirmation or your equipment is delivered, if this is later). This doesn’t apply to some services such as BT Sport or BT TV bolt-ons. We set out work this works in our terms and conditions at www.bt.com/legalstuff. If you decide to cancel within this period, you will have to pay for the services you have used and any connection charges that may apply. You must also return any equipment we have sent you. Where you have also cancelled an order for equipment, you must return it (undamaged and in its original packaging), following our instructions. We will refund anything you have already paid for the equipment but may deduct the relevant costs where damage has occurred to the equipment and it is not in its original condition.
