Broadband options
Broadband type Fixed-line broadband is available either as standard (ADSL) broadband, or fibre optic. Fibre optic broadband is much faster and more reliable, but it isn’t available everywhere and can cost more.
Monthly usage allowance The amount you download determines the broadband package you should get. To keep things simple, we ask if you would like to see packages which are unlimited. These packages are ideal for users who are online for several hours during the day, or use the internet extensively for entertainment - like downloading movies and TV, streaming entertainment, or playing games. They are also good for large households where several people go online at the same time. If that sounds like you, pick ‘Just unlimited’.
Minimum speed Your broadband speed determines how fast web pages load, files are downloaded, the time streaming video takes to buffer, and more. For a big household, or one where you stream lots of video or play games, a fast speed is recommended

What are the best children's TV channels?

Child jumping

There are plenty of ways to keep your family entertained - arts and crafts, board games, a Frisbee tournament - but one of the most popular by far is TV. And for that, you’ll need some good telly for the kids.

What children’s channels do I want?

The best channels will vary depending on how old your kids are, and what kind of programmes they like to watch - though bear in mind that they will grow out of certain TV shows quite quickly.

Sky (www.sky.com) and Virgin Media (www.virginmedia.com), give you different children’s channels depending on which package you have. On the other hand, BT (www.bt.com) and TalkTalk (www.talktalk.co.uk) include a just few with their basic packages, then allow you get more with add-ons or boosts.

So what kids channels can you watch?

  • Cartoons - For cartoons, you can’t get much better than the Cartoon Network. The flagship channel has loads of animated favourites for kids of all ages, including Over the Garden Wall, Adventure Time, Ben 10, and Steven Universe. Boomerang, meanwhile, is the host of classic toons like Looney Tunes, Powerpuff Girls, and Scooby Doo, and Cartoonito has shows for pre-school kids. Other cartoon channels include Disney XD (Gravity Falls, Phineas and Ferb), Pop (My Little Pony, Totally Spies), Tiny Pop (Caillou, Little Explorers), and Kix.
  • Pre-school - There are plenty of channels for pre-school age kids in particular, too. Nick Jr is a must if you want Peppa Pig and Dora the Explorer, though there’s also CBeebies (Bing, Peter Rabbit, Katie Morag), Disney Junior (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Curious George), and of course Cartoonito and Tiny Pop.
  • Teens - Older kids and young teens will likely prefer channels like Nickelodeon, where they can watch Make it Pop, iCarly, and The Legend of Korra, or the regular Disney Channel, for shows such as Descendants, Teen Beach, and Dog With a Blog.
  • All ages - Other channels have programming that spans across all age ranges. Good old CBBC has Blue Peter, Horrible Histories, Friday Download, and So Awkward for the whole family to enjoy - and CITV shows classics like Pokemon and Sooty.

Kids TV on Sky

Sky TV’s base package, Sky Entertainment, has a good selection of kids’ channels - CBBC, CBeebies, CITV, Kix, POP, Pop Girl, Tiny Pop - but if you want the Cartoon Network, Disney, and Nickelodeon suites, you’ll need to add on Sky Kids. This gives you around 10 extra channels - and if you get the Sky HD pack too, you can get some of them in HD as well.

And, of course, you can add Sky Cinema to any of its packages - which will give you Sky Cinema Family and Sky Cinema Disney for family-friendly films all day.

Most programmes are also available on demand or with catch up, and you can watch them from anywhere with the help of Sky Go, so it’s easy to keep the little tykes entertained whenever you want.

Kids TV on Virgin Media

TV packages from Virgin Media add more kids’ channels as they grow in size (the packages, that is, not the kids). With the basic Player TV, you’ll get CBBC, CBeebies, CITV, and Pop. Mix TV adds Boomerang, Cartoon Network, Tiddlers TV, and Tiny Pop; and Full House TV adds all the Disney channels along with a bunch of kids' channels in HD.

It may be difficult to decide which package to go for, since the channels aren’t sorted in a simple way - but if you’ve got growing kids, they’ll love the nice range of telly that comes with Full House.

There’s also the option to add the premium channel BabyTV to any package.

And remember that whatever channels you get, they’ll likely also be available to watch at any time with Virgin TV On Demand, and from any device with Virgin TV Anywhere.

Kids TV on BT

Two BT TV packages, Starter and Entertainment, offer the same range of channels. For kids, that means CBBC, CBeebies, CITV, Pop, Tiny Pop, CBBC HD, and CBeebies HD.

However, if you want more - namely, the Cartoon Network, Disney, and Nickelodeon ones - you can do so with the Entertainment Ultra HD package, or by adding the BT Kids Bolt-on. You’ll get nine extra channels, along with kids TV on demand and catch up, and the Bolt-on is on a rolling monthly subscription so you can cancel it if your youngsters suddenly grow up.

Kids TV on TalkTalk

With a basic TV package from TalkTalk - either TV or TV Plus - you’ll get CBBC, CBeebies, CITV, Pop, Tiny Pop, CBBC HD, and CBeebies HD.

But, similar to BT TV, you can add even more with a TalkTalk ‘Boost.’ The Kids Boost will give you the Cartoon Network, Disney, and Nickelodeon suites. You’ll get some of those on demand as well. And again, Boosts work on rolling monthly subscriptions that you can cancel whenever you want.

Kids TV on Freeview and Freesat

If you’re just sticking with standard Freeview, your choices of kids’ channels are a little more scant, unfortunately - CBBC, CBeebies, CITV, Pop, Tiny Pop, CBBC HD, and CBeebies HD. Freesat will get you the same, along with Pop Girl and Kix.

How do Freeview and Freesat compare to YouView? Find out in our head to head.
