Sky Talk - A complete guide

You probably know Sky ( as the UK’s favourite TV subscription service and the second most popular broadband. But it’s also got some pretty good home phone packages under its belt. Whether you like to chat at the weekends, or ring family and friends abroad, there’s bound to be a Talk plan that suits you. Read on and let’s see what you can get.

What can I get from Sky Talk?

Sky offers home phone packages:

  • Sky Line Rental - The standard Sky line rental, where you only pay for the calls you make.
  • Sky Talk Evenings and Weekends Extra - Inclusive UK landline calls at weekends and in the evening.
  • Sky Talk Anytime Extra - Inclusive calls to UK landlines 24/7.
  • Sky Talk International Extra - Unlimited calls to landlines in 50 international destinations - plus mobiles in Canada, Hong Kong, USA - at any time, as well as anytime calls to UK landlines.

The UK landline calls include numbers beginning with 01, 02, 03, and 0870, for calls of up to an hour - so remember to hang up before 60 minutes are up and phone back.

All Sky Talk packages include 1471 and 141 features, with the option to activate caller display and automatic number withhold for free as well.

For an extra cost per month, you can add some other calling features to your plan too. They include:

  • Voicemail, or an upgrade to Voicemail Plus (to record a personal greeting, store more messages, and listen to your messages from any phone)
  • Call divert
  • Call waiting
  • Three way calling
  • Ring back
  • Last caller barring
  • Anonymous caller reject
  • Reminder call

Your phone can also send and receive landline texts, though it’ll cost a few pennies each time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I keep my phone number if I switch provider?

    Yes, you can normally keep your existing number if you switch from one provider to another. However if you're a cable customer or need a new line, you may need to get a new one.

    For everything you need to know, see our guide: Can I keep my phone number?

  2. Can I save money by bundling TV, phone and broadband?
    Yes you can. Providers like Sky and Virgin Media offer competitively priced bundles, comprising broadband, home phone and TV, and getting all three services from the same place often leads to significant savings. It also makes it easier to manage finances, as all services come on a single bill.
  3. How do I get a new phone line?

    When you switch phone and broadband providers, or move to a new home, you may need to have a new phone line or cable installed. This can be arranged by your provider, with costs varying depending on the company you’re with and the package you’ve picked.

    Getting a new line installed is straightforward. When you sign up with a provider, they will tell you if you need a new line and arrange a time for an engineer to come and visit to do the work.

  4. Can I have a second phone line installed?

    Yes, it's possible to get a second phone line installed into a property. There are many reasons you might want to do this - getting a business-specific line, or splitting your property into flats or rented rooms, for example.

    The cost of fitting a second line will vary depending on who your provider is, and you may have to wait a few days until an engineer is available to do the work. Contact the provider for more information.
