A New Promotion for BT Broadband Customers in the UK - Get the Universal OnLive Wireless Controller for £19.99 and One Month of PlayPack Gaming for Free


BT is running another OnLive promotion for their BT broadband customers in the UK. You can get the Universal OnLive Wireless Controller for £19.99 (normally £39.99) and one month of OnLive PlayPack gaming for free (worth £6.99).



To get in on that offer you have to sign up to OnLive through BT and then you can buy the Universal OnLive Wireless Controller to play OnLive games via your PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone.

Plus – to get you started you'll also get 1 month free access to the Onlive Playpack Bundle – giving you access to 140+ games (worth £6.99) with any purchase of the Universal OnLive Wireless Controller.


The OnLive cloud gaming platform includes features like the Arena where you spectate live video streams of others playing games, Brag Clips which at any time record the last 10 seconds of your gaming session, group voice chat, player profiles, achievements, friends lists, etc. OnLive is basically a fully featured console service being video streamed to devices like PCs, Macs, TVs, tablets and smartphones, from the cloud. OnLive lets you play almost any game on the service with a free 30-minute trial. It's the perfect way to discover new games or genres you'd be reluctant to gamble on in a shop. If you like what you find, buying full access is simple – and instant. And if you don't, well, there's always something new to try.



After you've registered for OnLive through BT, they'll send you an email with a code to purchase the discounted Universal OnLive Wireless Controller.

The Universal OnLive Wireless Controller is used to play games and do other things in the OnLive client on various devices. The Universal OnLive Wireless Controller is compatible with most tablets and many smartphones. It utilizes OnLive’s exclusive adaptive wireless technology to automatically find an optimal wireless connection for a given tablet, smartphone, PC, Mac, Blu-ray player, Smart TV or TV through the OnLive Game System.


The Universal OnLive Wireless Controller shipps with a wireless adapter (USB 2.0 plugin), a rechargeable battery pack, the needed Alkaline AA batteries, and a 1 foot long USB charging cable. The controller lasts approximately 36 hours of play time on a single charge. The wireless adapter works with up to 4 separate universal controllers at once, as well as one Bluetooth headset (used for voice chat within the OnLive service). The wireless adapter is recommended for optimal performance, but you can sync the controller with any device over Bluetooth. Bluetooth synchronization has higher latency and doesn't perform as well as with the wireless adapter. Tablets like the Kindle Fire don't work with the Universal OnLive Wireless Controller and are only able to use touch controls with the OnLive App.

Then play on:
Using OnLive will count towards any monthly usage allowance for your broadband service. No need to worry if you're already on BT Broadband Option 3 or BT Infinity Option 2, you've got unlimited broadband usage.
