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. Simply enter your postcode, and we’ll list all your different options side by side, so you can easily compare features and price. When you find a package you like, click the link and you’ll be taken straight to the provider’s site. Once you're all set to go live, contact your old TV provider and ask to cancel your current service. Fast, simple and hassle-free.
  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 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 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.

  5. How do I get BT Sport?
    BT Sport is available to add on to any BT TV package, and is completely free of charge with its top-end package.

    The full BT Sport suite is available for a monthly subscription with Sky TV or Virgin Media TV.

    For more information and deals, see our full guide to BT Sport.
  6. Why can’t I get Virgin Media?
    Virgin Media has its own separate cable network to deliver the provider’s broadband, phone and TV services, which now covers more than half of the UK. If you live in a town or city, or at least a built-up suburb of one, then chances are you’ll have access to Virgin Media. The network is always growing, though, so if you can’t get it now, that doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be able to get it in the future. Enter your postcode into our comparison tool to find out if Virgin Media is available where you live.
