Can BT Vision stand up against its on-demand rivals?

In terms of connections, the V-Box carries a couple of Scarts, a composite video output, an optical digital audio output, an RF antenna input, an S-Video output, two stereo audio output, a CI card slot for adding pay TV services to the Freeview...

BT Vision+ review

 

BT Vision is an on-demand TV service delivered via broadband, and is only available to BT Total Broadband customers. The Vision+ is an update to the original silver Vision set-top box and looks a lot sleeker in black. It's had a few tweaks which...

The new Vision+ box is better looking than the old, but brings little else to the table bar lower power consumption.

BT Vision combines Freeview content with TV programmes, films and music, and can be 'rented' by BT Total Broadband users.

For subscribers to BT Broadband, getting BT Vision is the most obvious and straightforward way to enjoy TV on your PC. What's more, this is one of the first services that also adds the ability to watch anything delivered via your broadband pipe on a...

If you're already a BT broadband customer and you don't have a PVR, this is an absolute bargain -- and the on-demand content is simply a bonus. But if you're with a different ISP this isn't worth switching for, and despite a lovely interface, its...

Low price ; Lovely menus ; Dual tuners ; Plenty of memory ; Quiet ; On-demand video

Ugly box ; Crashes every so often ; Hard drive never stops spinning ; On-demand content difficult to browse ; Wired connection to BT Home Hub

On the other hand, if you're not a BT customer there isn't much here to make you go through the rigmarole of changing your ISP. In that case, we'd recommend stumping up more cash and going for a DVD/Freeview recorder such as the Panasonic DMR-EX77. And...

We're already huge fans of Sky+ HD, with Virgin's TiVo live and on demand TV service proving equally good when it comes to home entertainment. BT Vision is the latest service to enter the fray – join us after the break to find out whether it's as good...

BT Vision may be easy to use, and makes sense if you're unable to install a satellite dish or already get lots of services through BT, but it's simply not as comprehensive as either Sky+ HD or Virgin TiVo. You'll find less channels to watch, and it...

BT believes that its BT Vision digital recorder is so clever, it'll bring subscribers to its broadband service in droves and help the telephony giant compete against Sky, which is already making inroads into BT's phone and broadband business

Good EPG, Pretty good value, Has great potential

Can't be used wirelessly, Prone to crashing, Lack of decent VOD content

In theory, it's the most advanced PVR you can get, but in practice it's far from perfect

I recently moved to a new apartment and it had a BT phone line already installed, so for convenience I went with BT for my internet services and I also subscribed to BT Vision. I like the idea of having all my services with one provider and I
