How to watch Netflix with BT TV

If you're an existing BT TV customer you can add Netflix here. Or simply sign up directly through channel 333, or via the Netflix player, on your BT TV box. Your Netflix charge will then be added to your next BT bill.

If you're not yet a BT TV customer, you'll need to subscribe to a BT TV package and add Netflix as a bolt-on during the order process. You can place your order here. Once activated, your Netflix charge will then be added to your next BT bill.
