BT TV and UKTV have agreed on a new deal to make UKTV’s full portfolio of channels available to BT customers.
The new deal also extends to internet and mobile streaming for UKTV’s ten channels via BT’s TV Everywhere app, available on smartphones, tablets and PCs. It includes seven day catch up rights for all ten UKTV channels.
