Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Is Sky any good?
    There’s no short answer to that, because different providers suit everyone differently. But basically, when it comes to TV in the UK, Sky pretty much rules the roost in terms of availability, channels, features, films, box sets, and sports. When it comes to broadband, it’s a lot trickier to say as there are a lot of factors that affect it - where you live being the main one - but it’s not the fastest that’s widely available.
  2. Can I switch to Sky?
    You can switch to Sky TV as long as you can have a satellite dish put on your home. If you rent your home or live in a listed building you’ll probably need to get permission first. You can switch to Sky Broadband or Sky Fibre as long as you can get them where you live - use our postcode checker to find out - and you have a working phone line. You can get a new one installed if you don’t though.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Can I keep the same phone number?
    Even if you're switching phone provider it's usually possible to keep the same telephone number. However, if you're moving house it may not be possible to keep your existing phone number - particularly if you're entering a different area code.
