BT has become the first pay TV provider in the UK to offer movies to buy-to-keep as well as rent, meaning customers can buy many of the latest blockbusters from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, along with a selection of modern greats and classics - all through BT’s YouView box.
The top film titles available to buy in Digital HD and SD include The Wolverine, DreamWorks Animation’s Turbo (from February 17) and The Croods from Fox; Elysium, Captain Phillips (from February 10) and The Smurfs 2 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, as well as customer favourites such as The Social Network, the Alien series, Black Swan and Jerry Maguire.
Library prices start from as little as £8.99 for films in Digital HD and £5.99 for SD.
Films bought from BT will be streamed instantly to your YouView set-top box and you can keep them indefinitely and watch them as many times as you like.
We're also planning to expand the service to include TV box sets over the coming months.
Alex Green, director of BT TV, said: “The new service gives you even more choice. You can buy the latest blockbusters and they’re yours to keep forever. And you can watch them as many times as you like.”
Films are especially popular with BT customers, with a film being rented through BT Box Office every minute. Hundreds of the latest films are available on BT Box Office months before becoming available on NOW TV, LOVEFiLM Instant and Netflix.
BT Box Office offers more than 600 films (with many of the top blockbusters available in HD) and has a partnership with Curzon Home Cinema where you can watch many of the top titles on the same day as their cinema release.
