Plusnet TV - What can I get?

Plusnet ( is stretching its feelers out into the world of TV in the form of our good friend YouView. Right now, it’s only available to existing customers.

To get Plusnet TV, you have to renew your contract for another 18 months. You’ll then have the choice of a regular YouView set top box, which lets you watch over 70 free-to-air TV and radio channels - 10 of which are HD - as well as pause and rewind live TV. Or, you can go for the fancier YouView+ box, so you can also record up to 300 hours of standard definition telly. Both have access to seven days of catch up too, from the big on demand services like BBC iPlayer and 4OD.

YouView is also known for its user-friendly and accessible interface. All those programmes on catch up can be found just by scrolling back on the TV guide, and you can search by genre, turn on subtitles or audio description easily, and zoom in on text to read it better.

With Plusnet, you can snag a few telly extras. You’ll get 20 more premium entertainment channels as standard, including Comedy Central, Discovery, Eurosport, MTV, and Syfy. And if that’s not enough, Plusnet’s got ‘channel packs’ too. They include Entertainment, Kids channel pack, and the HD pack, for more of the TV you love in stunning high definition.

And of course, you can get BT Sport. The BT Sport 1 channel on its own is available free of charge, or you can upgrade to the full pack for a - surprisingly low - monthly fee. The pack's available if you have either a Plusnet TV box, or an old Sky box, viewing card, and satellite dish along with Plusnet broadband.

Compare Plusnet packages


Unfortunately, it’s still a way to go before Plusnet TV is available to the rest of us. But if you like the sound of YouView, and want to get some extra channels and services from it too, we recommend comparing the TV packages from BT ( and TalkTalk (

With BT TV you get extra entertainment channels on YouView as standard, as well as cheap (or even free) BT Sport, and you can subscribe to ‘Bolt-ons’ for more channels or on demand services. Take a look at our guide for the lowdown.

Similarly, TalkTalk TV has ‘Boosts’ to offer, so you can get bundles of channels added to your package. These include sports, music, kids' TV, Sky Cinema… the whole shebang. Read our full guide to find out the details.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I switch to a new TV service?
    Switching TV services is a breeze if you use a comparison service like ours.

  2. How do I get sports channels?

    There are multiple sports channels in the UK, with the biggest being Sky Sports and BT Sport.

    Sky Sports is available at an extra monthly cost on Sky TV, BT TV, TalkTalk TV, Virgin Media TV, and Now TV. Read our guide for more info.

    BT Sport, which also includes ESPN, is available on BT TV, and for an extra monthly cost on Sky TV and Virgin Media TV. Read our guide for more info.

  3. How do I get movie channels?

    Sky often has the first TV broadcast rights for big movies, so if you want to see the latest blockbusters first, you’ll need Sky Cinema - which you can get through Sky, Virgin Media, BT, and TalkTalk TV packages for an additional monthly charge.

    Most TV providers also offer new home entertainment releases to view on a pay-per-view basis. Bear in mind, you may need a broadband connection to access some of these services. See our guide for more info.

  4. How do I switch broadband provider?

    The process of changing your broadband provider is actually pretty straightforward. First, you put your postcode into our impartial comparison tool. We’ll display the broadband, phone and TV deals available where you live, and then you can use our search filters to narrow down the options and find the perfect package for your household. Finally, you sign up with your new provider online. They’ll contact your existing provider and take care of everything else for you (unless you're switching to or from Virgin Media).

    The actual switch should be virtually seamless, and in the vast majority of cases it is. Your new broadband provider will send you all the stuff you need to get set up, like a new wireless router and/or TV set-top box.
