How good is BT TV?

BT offers less number of channels than Sky TV or Virgin Media TV but includes BT Sports in all TV bundles. 

Cheaper, when compared to Sky, but, BT TV is costlier than TalkTalk TV which also offers better customer service. 

Sky Sports and Sky Cinema which you can get as add-ons are slightly pricier when compared to Sky offers. 

BT TV is YouView based and its TV boxes can record maximum hours of 600, when compared to Sky Q 2TB which comes with twice this capacity and Sky also offers Mini boxes and more number of HD channels.
