Whilst true, montycat, think of it in more basic terms.
£49 for a YouView from BT box plus £5 x 12 months = £109, plus the cost of a retail box at £250 equals a total of £359. And the eqpt is then yours to keep.
Whereas the Virgin offer you quote above is £48 x 12 months = £576.
And the eqpt is only leased, not yours.
So it's swings and roundabouts I suppose.
Yeah but virgin has premium channels and sport. Youview doesn't. Until it does, just how many are going to opt for it?
