If you’re struggling to get PS5 stock from retailers such as Amazon, John Lewis or GAME then BT and EE might have just the ticket for you. Existing customers with the telecommunications giant are able to purchase the next-generation Sony console from BT and EE today. If you’re with BT then you’ll be able to purchase a PS5 via MyBT while EE customers can bag a PlayStation 5 through Add to Plan.
The latter will let gamers spread the cost of a PlayStation 5 across 11 interest free monthly payments, which should make things a bit easier on your wallet.
These payments will get added to the cost of your monthly EE price plan.
Announcing the PS5 stock news, Alistair Wilson, Director of Devices and Partnerships, BT’s Consumer Division, said: “By making PS5 available to our BT broadband and EE mobile customers, we’re able to offer them the very latest experiences in gaming.
“When combining the PS5 with the ultra responsive, super-fast connectivity that BT Full Fibre delivers, customers really will enjoy an amazing gaming experience.”
While a BT spokesperson told Express Online that limited stock is still available: “We have limited stock on EE Add to Plan left and on BT following huge demand, we’re now asking customers to register their interest on our site, where we will email them as more stock is made available.”
BT offers a wide range of broadband offerings to compliment the PS5, such as the Full Fibre package which the telecommunications giant says offers “lighting fast speeds”.
While there’s also the Superfast Fibre package, and both of these come with no download limits and the Stay Fast Guarantee.
This means customers will always get the speeds promised, or their money back.
The BT and EE PS5 stock news comes as there has been a huge rush to bag a PS5 today, which is the PS5 launch day in the UK and Europe.
Websites such as John Lewis, GAME and Amazon UK were hit by server troubles amid huge demand as gamers clamoured to get a shiny new PS5.
Currys PC World were one of the retailers that were meant to list the PS5 today, with stock planned to become available to buy at 9am GMT.
However, just when the PS5 stock was expected to be available to purchase the Currys PC World Twitter announced a delay.
They tweeted: “Important Announcement.
“Our 9am go live for the PS5 is unfortunately on hold. We’re really sorry as we know a lot of you are really excited to get your hands on the PS5, we are hoping that it will go live later today.
“Keep your eyes peeled on our page for more updates”.
And then just a few hours later: “PS5 Update. There will be no PS5s available to buy today.
“We know that this is disappointing news, and we are working super hard to get more stock.
“Please check our social channels for further updates on availability”.
