TalkTalk TV Boosts: A guide
What are Boosts?
Boosts are bundles of channels or on demand services that you can add to your TalkTalk TV package. They all work on a monthly rolling subscription, meaning you can start and stop receiving them at any time. However, most do require a broadband connection of at least 5Mb.
