Why do we need this
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

How to get the Grand Prix on your TV

Are you revving your engine for this year's Formula One season? Then you’ll be wanting to know how you can watch every race on TV and online...

Who shows Formula One on TV?

Since 2012, every Formula One race, qualifying session and practice session has been shown live on Sky Sports F1, Sky's dedicated Formula One channel. It also provides in-depth analysis, with former Formula One driver Martin Brundle leading a team of commentators and pundits including David 'Crofty' Croft and Ted Kravitz.

A smaller number of races - 10 to be precise - will also be shown on Channel 4. That may be a surprise if you’re used to watching on the Beeb. Prior to the previous 2016 season, you could watch select meetings on BBC 1, but - under intense pressure to cut costs - the broadcaster decided to abandon TV coverage (though you can still listen to races on 5 Live Sports Extra).

Instead, terrestrial F1 coverage has been picked up by Channel 4. Yes, that means there’s now adverts (boo!) but at least you can still watch parts of the season for free (yay!). There are some key races on the channel too, including the British Grand Prix, and the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi. It will also show highlights for every event.

Is there Formula One on BT Sport?

Nope. But if motorsport in general is your thing, BT Sport shows live MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto 3 races, warm ups and practice sessions and live coverage of all 26 stages of the FIA World Rally Championship. It also covers NASCAR, the IndyCar Series, Formula E, V8 Supercars, the World Series by Renault and more.

How do you get Sky Sports F1?

Sky Sports F1 is included in the Sky Sports package, which comprises seven channels - Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 2, Sky Sports 3, Sky Sports 4, Sky Sports 5, Sky Sports F1 and Sky Sports News HQ. Naturally, you can get this from Sky (www.sky.com) directly - either as part of the Sky Sports bundle, or as a £25.50 upgrade to any other bundle.

Compare Sky TV deals

You can also get Sky Sports F1 with TalkTalk TV (www.TalkTalk.co.uk). It’s included in the Sky Sports Boost (TalkTalk terminology for an add-on), which also contains Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 2, Sky Sports 3, Sky Sports 4 and Sky Sports 5. You only get Sky Sports News HQ with the Plus TV package. It costs £30 extra a month, but as boosts roll monthly, you can cancel it at any time with no exit fees.

Compare TalkTalk TV deals

You can add Sky Sports F1 - along with Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 2, Sky Sports 3, Sky Sports 4 and Sky Sports 5 - to any Virgin Media TV (www.virginmedia.com) package for an extra £29.25 a month, and in HD for another £7 a month.

Can you watch Formula One without Sky TV?

Indeed you can. Obviously you can watch 10 races on Channel 4. You can watch the other half by getting Sky Sports F1 on a pay-as-you-go basis through NOW TV, which you can get online, on your phone or tablet, on a PlayStation or Xbox console, with a NOW TV Box or on YouView. A Sky Sports Day Pass, which gets all seven Sky Sports Channels for 24 hours, costs £6.99. A Sky Sports Week Pass costs £10.99, and a month pass is £33.99

Or, if you don't mind only being able to watch the races on your phone, you can get all seven Sky Sports channels plus Sky News on iPhones and newer Android phones for £9.99 a month by downloading the Sky Sports Mobile TV 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. 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.

  5. 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.
  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.
