BT Vision is now available for customers to self install for a one-off connection fee of just £30 – making it even better value for people looking to enjoy Freeview and a vast range of film, sport, music and television programming on-demand, with no compulsory subscription.

By avoiding the need for an engineer visit, customers choosing BT Vision Self Install not only save themselves £60 but can also set up their BT Vision service at a time that is convenient for them.

The Self Install option includes a pair of Comtrend Powerline Adaptors, which plug into wall power sockets and carry the video signal from the BT Home Hub to the V-box across the domestic power circuit. This offers customers much greater flexibility over where they can set up their digital TV equipment in the home.

The BT Vision Self Install equipment is delivered directly to the customer’s door by courier. Self install is straightforward and can be completed in less than an hour. All the necessary equipment is included in the box, and the BT Vision Self Install Guide supports the customer through every stage of the install process.

Dan Marks, BT Vision CEO, said: “For customers who don’t want or need an engineer visit, Self Install makes BT Vision an even more attractive choice – it gives all the benefits of our next-generation digital TV service for an incredible up front price of just £30.”

“We know that most people have their main TV in the living room and their PC elsewhere in the home. By using the Powerline adaptors, customers can connect the V-box to their BT Home Hub wherever it is in the home without requiring an engineer visit.”

BT Vision Self Install is now available from more than 1,000 high street stores nationwide, including branches of Comet, and John Lewis. Customers can also order it online directly from BT by visiting
