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

In the mood for a film? The UK’s TV services are ready for their close-up

If you’re a fan of the silver screen, there’s plenty to watch on the small one.

All pay TV services in the UK offer dedicated film channels, both to watch live and on-demand. In this guide, we’ll look at what’s available from the various providers, as well as how to find the best deal.

So lights, camera… let’s get on with it.

Movies on Sky

Sky Cinema - formerly known as Sky Movies - is the most comprehensive movie service in the UK and naturally it’s available with Sky TV. It gives you 11 channels, covering all types of flicks - Oscar winners, superhero slugfests, art-house, family… you name it.

It’s typically the first service to get premieres too, so if you’re particularly interested in seeing new films on TV, Sky Cinema’s your best bet.

Sky Cinema comes as standard with the appropriately-named Cinema bundle, but you can also add it on to other packages at any time. As well as watching live and on-demand channels on the TV, you’ll also be able to access the Sky Go service and watch movies on your phone, tablet and computer, and - for an extra fee - other devices like smart TVs and game consoles.

Plus there’s a dedicated Sky Cinema app, for iOS and Android devices. Basically, whenever you’re in the mood for a film, there’s a way to watch one - the biggest challenge will be rustling up some popcorn.

Find out more in our guide to Sky TV, and to compare deals, simply enter your postcode in the box above.

Movies on TalkTalk TV

TalkTalk is based around YouView - basically a Freeview box with lots of bells and whistles - so you get all the free to air movie channels, including Film 4 as standard. To get more, you need to add channels to your packages with a ‘Boost’.

There are two TalkTalk film boosts available: Sky Cinema and PictureBox. The Sky Cinema Boost gives you access to all 11 of Sky’s dedicated movie channels. The PictureBox Boost gives you access to 60 flicks each month, with new ones cycled in every week. It’s a well-curated selection, and a healthy mix of crowd-pleasers, family films and interesting curios.

What’s particularly good about TalkTalk Boosts is that they roll monthly. You can add and remove them from your package as you see fit, so you’re not tied into any lengthy contracts.

As well as Boosts, TalkTalk also offers the TalkTalk TV Store. The service formerly known as Blinkbox lets you rent and buy the latest and greatest films. You don’t have to be a TalkTalk customer to use it - you can watch online via PC or smartphone, for example - but if you do have TalkTalk TV, it all integrates nicely.

If you need more information about TalkTalk Boosts, check out our full guide on the subject.

To see TalkTalk deals, simply enter your postcode on the top of the page and we’ll show you what’s available in your area.

Movies on Virgin Media

Virgin Media’s as comprehensive a TV service as you’re likely to find. Naturally, it has a lot to offer movie fans.

Sky Cinema comes included in the Full House Movies bundle, but can also be added onto any other Virgin Media TV package. Regardless of your bundle, you’ll get all channels in HD as standard, and more than 1,000 films to watch on demand.

That can be done on TV via your TiVo box, or online with the Sky Cinema app - available to all Sky Cinema users at no extra cost.

You don’t have to sign up to Sky Cinema to watch movies through Virgin Media TV though. All subscribers get access to Virgin Movies, which lets you rent movies to watch on demand. HD and 3D flicks are available, and they’re usually available on the same day as their DVD or Blu-Ray release.

You can find out more about Virgin Media here, and to see deals in your area, use the postcode checker above.

Movies on BT TV

If you have BT Infinity fibre optic broadband, you can get access to all Sky Cinema channels and on demand movies. The dedicated movies service can be added to a BT package when you switch.

If you can’t get fibre (our guide can help you see if you can), you can get Sky Cinema On Demand. This gives you a monthly subscription so you can watch films online, but you don’t get the live channels.

If you want to watch newer films, you can buy or rent the latest movies individually on the BT TV Store. You can also rent loads of TV box sets, so there’s no shortage of films to veg out in front of.

Find out more about BT TV in our guide, and compare deals at the top of this very page.

Movies on Now TV

Now TV originally launched as a convenient way to watch movies online, but now it’s so much more than that. It does broadband and TV - available on both a contract or no-contract basis - and gives you the option to choose a Sky Cinema pass.

This gives you all of Sky’s movie content - live channels and a vast array of on-demand films to watch as and when you like.

As well as on TV with a Now TV set top box, you can also watch your films through your phone, tablet, PC, Mac, smart TV, games consoles and more.

Our exclusive guide can tell you more about Now TV.

On demand movie apps

If you prefer streaming over channels, and want to be able to watch your movies from anywhere, take a look at on demand movie streaming services. You’ll find most of them available via a web browser, as a smartphone or tablet app, or through Smart TVs, streaming sticks, and games consoles. You can even access some right there on your telly with some TV packages.

Read more in our guide to film streaming sites.

Netflix is one of the most popular on demand TV and movie apps. Although it requires signing up for a separate subscription, some TV services - namely Virgin Media and TalkTalk - will also let you include the fee in your normal TV bill, and access it through the home screen on your telly.

Its closest rival is Amazon Prime Instant Video, where you can also watch a huge range of movies and TV shows on demand. They’re available to buy and rent too, so you can download and watch films from anywhere - and since it’s designed to work on pretty much any device, that shouldn’t be difficult.

Now TV is created by Sky, but works very separately from its TV services. Through Now TV you can watch movies and TV shows on demand by buying a monthly pass - and that includes Sky Cinema passes as well. You’ll find Now TV online and on apps, through Sky TV, or through YouView (including BT TV and TalkTalk TV). Or, if you really like it, Now TV now has its own set top box for your telly.

PictureBox works a little differently, in that there isn’t a huge library of films to choose from - instead, they’re rotated around every month, so the collection is constantly updating. You can get PictureBox as a TV Boost on TalkTalk, through BT or Virgin Media TV, or via its app.

FAQs

  1. 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.

  2. 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. Fast, simple and hassle-free.
  3. 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.

  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.
  5. Can I get BT TV?
    Probably. The minimum requirement for getting BT TV is a TV aerial and a BT broadband package with download speeds of at least 2Mb. BT broadband is available to the vast majority of the country, so you're probably in luck. To get certain TV services, however - including BT Sport - you'll need BT Infinity, which isn't quite as widely available.
  6. 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.
