Who wants more than one provider? Getting your broadband, home phone and TV in one big package means they’re designed to work together and you only have to keep track of one bill. A three-in-one bundle is usually cheaper too!
Find out how to choose a broadband, phone and TV package, including how to stick to your budget, where to start and how to make sure everyone who’ll be using it is happy, in just over a minute with this video.
Building your bundle
When you’re shopping for broadband, phone and TV, start with whatever you’ve got the strongest feelings about. For most, this’ll be TV.
Once you’ve narrowed down your search by deciding what telly you want, it’s easier to choose your broadband and phone.
Similarly, if you know what download speed you want, and you’re willing to compromise on TV, start with broadband.
- TV - TV packages range in size from basic Freeview, all the way up to a couple of hundred channels.
- Broadband - Busy households with lots of connected devices run more smoothly on fibre optic broadband, and you'll get out-of-this-world speeds - average speeds of 300Mb are widely available. Standard broadband with a usage limit, meanwhile, will suffice if you live alone or don’t use the internet a lot.
- Phone - For many, it’s the least important part of a broadband, TV and phone deal - but if you need something specific, like international calls for phoning family abroad, check out what calls are included.
Which providers do broadband, phone, and TV bundles?
You've got quite a bit of choice here, and each provider offers something a little different. You can compare broadband, phone and TV deals - mobile phone plans as well, if you’re interested - from all the major providers in the UK - but bear in mind they don’t offer the same packages all over the country, especially when it comes to broadband. That’s why we ask for your postcode, so we can show you the best broadband deals available where you live. For combo deals, you can choose between providers such as...
BT broadband and TV deals
It’s the UK’s biggest for broadband and phone, and BT Superfast Fibre is the most widely-available superfast broadband. You'll find its broadband in three possible speeds, and there are absolutely loads of options for upgrading your home phone. If you want TV as well, simply add a YouView box to your bundle, and you'll get Freeview, a handful of premium entertainment channels, and BT Sport. There are regularly BT deals available, so compare to see your options.
EE broadband and TV deals
EE has speedy broadband packages in its arsenal, and pay-TV that gives you access to tons of apps - like Netflix, All4, BBC iPlayer, YouTube, and more - right there on your telly. Again, three speeds of broadband are available, and EE mobile customers get a boost to their mobile plan. Home phone is included too, natch.
NOW Broadband and TV deals
A fairly new addition to the broadband-TV-bundle scene, NOW Broadband (probably more familiar as NOW TV) offers broadband, home phone, and basic TV. Fibre broadband is available, basic line rental comes as standard, and you can stick in a TV box for Freeview and lots of apps to watch (like Netflix). You can also bundle in its 30-day TV Passes - which give you some extra entertainment, sports, movies, or kids channels.
Sky broadband and TV deals
Sky's still top of the tree when it comes to delivering unmissable telly, live sports and new movies. You get a minimum of 300 TV channels, with the option to throw in some extras to suit your family's tastes. That includes boxsets, Sky Sports, Sky Cinema, kids TV, and more. It’s also the country’s second-largest broadband provider - and to go superfast, you can get Sky Fibre.
TalkTalk broadband and TV deals
If you’re on a budget, or just want broadband, phone and TV that doesn’t cost a bomb, TalkTalk is the one for you. Add YouView for TV, choose some Boosts for extra channels and features, and energise your internet with superpowered fibre.
Virgin Media broadband and TV deals
If speed’s what you need, Virgin Media offers the UK’s fastest widely-available broadband, which has average download speeds of 362Mb. That's as well as a huge range of channels and features on its connected TV box TiVo - this'll give you a couple hundred channels, more on-demand shows and films than you can shake a stick at, and you can even add BT Sport, Sky Sports, and Sky Cinema.
Benefits of bundling
We’re always banging on about how much you can save by getting broadband, TV and phone in one big package - it’s almost always cheaper than getting them separately. Plus it's more convenient, as you only have to keep track of one monthly bill. It also means that when your contract is up, it’s easier to switch again as you can move everything to a new provider in one go. Last but not least, by bundling you get the best experience from your broadband, phone and TV because they’re made for each other.
What are the best broadband and TV deals?
The best deal for you all depends on what you're looking for from your broadband, landline, and pay-TV. Start by typing your postcode in above, and we'll show you what you can get. Then you can narrow it down to the right kind of packages for you.
- If you're on a budget - try a more low-priced bundle provider, like TalkTalk, NOW, or EE. You won't get as many channels or features with their TV, but you can get average broadband speeds of between 63-67Mb.
- For the fastest broadband you can get - you want Virgin Media. Its fastest package will give you average speeds of 362Mb, and there are varying TV options available for different budgets.
- For the most TV channels - Sky's your guy. The provider gives you a minimum of 300 or so, and you can add extra if you want something specialist (like movies, or on-demand boxsets). Plus you'll have your choice of ADSL or fibre broadband.
- For sport - BT Sport is included with BT TV, but if you want both the full BT Sport and Sky Sports packages in your bundle, go for Sky or Virgin Media. Read more about getting sports on your TV.
Broadband and phone deals
Pretty much every broadband provider lets you bundle your internet with a home phone package, with the majority including a landline as standard. This is how fixed-line broadband is delivered, so it's almost always included.
If you have a particularly chatty household, however, you can upgrade that landline to cover things like evening and weekend calls, anytime calls, cheap international calling, and so on. Use the toggle in our comparison tool to filter for these.
Can I get broadband and TV without line rental?
Yes, you can get broadband and TV with no landline included, but it's a little complicated. There isn't a singular provider that offers this kind of package, so you'll have to combine standalone broadband and TV from two different providers. Virgin Media offers both of these; Sky offers TV on its own; and mobile broadband providers, like Relish, offer landline-free broadband.
Sometimes this can be a good way to save money - but generally, it isn't much different in cost from simply getting a three-in-one bundle with phone from a single provider. Getting a bundle deal is far less hassle, too.
Is a bundle always better?
In most cases, bundling’s the easiest way to save money on your broadband, phone and TV. If you add up the cost of getting them from separate providers, it’ll usually be much higher than that of a three-in-one bundle, but take your needs into consideration.
For example, if TV’s not high on your list of priorities, you might be better off with Freeview and a cheaper broadband and phone deal. However, if you want more from your TV, it makes sense to bundle it with broadband and phone.
