Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 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.
  2. Is Sky available in my area?
    It depends on whether you want Sky TV, Sky Broadband or Sky Fibre. If it’s Sky TV, almost definitely - it’s satellite TV. If it’s Sky Broadband, probably - you can even get it outside the Sky network area. If it’s Sky Fibre, possibly - it’s available to 50-60% of homes in the UK. Put your postcode in our checker to find out if you can get it.
  3. What Sky packages are there?
    It depends on what you want. There are Sky TV packages (Original Bundle, Variety Bundle, Family Bundle, Cinema Bundle, Sports Bundle, Complete Bundle, Sky Q, Sky Q Silver), Sky Broadband packages (Broadband Unlimited, Fibre, Fibre Unlimited, Fibre Unlimited Pro), and Sky Talk home phone packages (Pay as you Talk, Talk Evenings and Weekends, Talk Anytime, Talk Anytime International).
  4. How is Sky installed?
    If it’s Sky TV, an engineer will set up your satellite dish for you within around six days of you making your order - it’ll take around an hour. With Sky broadband, you’ll be posted everything you need to set yourself up - you’ll only need an engineer if you’re having a new phone line installed - and your package should be active within two weeks of you making your order.
  5. 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.
  6. What are the main TV services in the UK?

    Freeview is the most common TV service in the UK - set top boxes are affordable, and new TVs predominantly all come with Freeview tuners built-in. Once you have Freeview you can watch TV as much as you want with no additional cost. Other subscription-free TV options include YouView and satellite TV service Freesat.

    However, for the best choice of channels and on demand services, you’ll need to join a subscription-based TV service. The four big ones in the UK are from Sky, Virgin Media, BT, and TalkTalk.

  7. How do I switch to a new TV service?
    Switching TV services is a breeze if you use a comparison service like ours. Simply enter your postcode, and we’ll list all your different options side by side, so you can easily compare features and price.
