Getting your broadband, home phone and TV in a single package means you only have to keep track of one bill. Better still, it usually works out cheaper too. Read on to find out how to build a package and find the best deals.
How to choose a broadband bundle
There's a lot to consider when picking a TV, broadband and phone packages.
- TV - TV packages range in size from basic Freeview, all the way up to comprehensive bundles that get you a couple of hundred channels, including live sport and the latest movies. The question you need to ask, is whether you'll really watch all those extra channels.
- Broadband - Busy households with lots of connected devices run more smoothly on fibre optic broadband. 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, such as international calls for phoning family abroad, make sure you sign up for inclusive overseas calls add-on.
Which providers offer broadband, phone, and TV bundles?
You can get broadband, phone and TV bundles from EE, NOW Broadband, Plusnet, Sky, TalkTalk EE and Virgin Media.
Bear in mind, though, they don’t offer the same packages all over the country. The best way to see what's available in your area is to input your postcode in our availability checker. That way you'll only see deals you can sign up for at your address.
Here's what each provider has to offer:

What are the benefits of bundling broadband and home with TV?
Signing up for broadband, TV and phone in a package from a single provider is almost always cheaper than getting them separately.
It's more convenient too, 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 because you can move everything to a new provider in one go.
Can I get broadband and TV without line rental?
You can get broadband and TV without a landline. But because no provider that offers this kind of package, the only way to do so is to combine standalone broadband and a standalone TV add-on from two separate providers.
Virgin Media offers standalone broadband as well as standalone TV, while Sky offers TV on its own too.
Sometimes assembling a package yourself in this way can save you money. However, generally it isn't much different in cost from simply getting a three-in-one bundle with phone from a single provider.
Getting a three-in-one bundle deal is much less hassle, too.
