Why do we need your postcode?

We don’t want to show you a load of deals that you can’t actually get, so by giving us your postcode we show you only the deals that are available where you live. We don’t share your postcode with anyone else. Take a look at our privacy policy to find out more.

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 TV channels can I get?

TV packages can vary in a lot of ways. There are different prices, different set top boxes… but what we really care about are the different channels. Every provider has its own approach to building TV packages, and that means you could miss out on getting your favourites if you pick the wrong one. Here’s a quick lowdown of what you can watch with each provider.

Free-to-air channels

If you don’t fancy shelling out for a pay TV package, you’ll still be able to watch free-to-air channels with a set top box from Freeview, YouView, or Freesat. With Freeview and YouView you can watch over 70 channels, or with Freesat you’ll get 200. Both have a good range of all genres, including plenty of entertainment, radio, news, and a good number of HD channels.

Not sure which one to go for? Check out our Freeview vs Freesat vs YouView guide.

BT TV channels

Telly from BT ( uses a YouView box, so with its basic Starter package you’ll get all the free-to-air channels plus a few extras thrown in from BT, including BT Sport. Upgrading to Entertainment gets you more - including lots of entertainment and factual ones, as well as Eurosport - and Max gives you the most channels of all. And if that’s not enough, you can subscribe to ‘Bolt-ons,’ which give you bundles of the kinds of channels that you want. There are Bolt-ons for kids' TV, music, and HD channels, plus Sky Cinema, Sky Sports, and loads more.

Sky TV channels

Because it uses satellites rather than cables, Sky ( has a lot more channels in its basic TV package than other providers - a massive 300 or so. That’s all the free-to-air satellite channels, plus Sky’s exclusive ones, including Sky 1 and Sky Atlantic. You can get even more on top of that by adding extra channel packs, like kids' TV and HD channels. And of course, you can add Sky Cinema and Sky Sports to any Sky TV package.

Virgin Media TV channels

TV packages from Virgin Media ( gain more channels as they go up in size. The smallest, Player TV, has pretty much just Freeview channels, then Mix TV adds on some Sky ones, lots more entertainment, and some music, News, and a bit of sport. The biggest of the lot, Full House, has around a whopping 240 channels. As well as all those, you can add premium channels - Sky Cinema, Sky Sports, international, or adult ones, for instance - to any package.

TalkTalk TV channels

TalkTalk ( TV is nice and straightforward with only two packages: TV, which gives you basic free-to-view telly; or TV Plus, which includes a YouView+ box and 30-odd extra entertainment channels. If those aren’t enough, you can add bundles of channels with ‘TV Boosts.’ There are Boosts for entertainment, sport, kids, music, and world channels, and many more.

  2. 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.

  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. 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.
