    Digital TV has been with us for a few years now and before 2012 is out we will all be digital users. This is because as the governments Digital Switchover continues each and every area of the UK will see its traditional analogue TV service being unceremoniously switched off. Quite simply, come 2013, if you want to watch TV you will have to make the switch to digital.

    For many, life without analogue TV is already a reality. The digital switchover has already been completed in Scotland, Wales, the southwest, northwest and the Borders.

    UK consumers have a number of options to consider when preparing for the switch. Many people will already be watching digital TV without realising it. Chances are if you’ve bought a TV in the last five years it will be a so-called DVB TV i.e. one that receives the free-to-air digital TV channels, or ‘Freeview’.

    But there is so much to be gained by opting instead for a subscription digital TV service from Sky, Virgin Media or BT Vision.

    Sky

    Sky brought digital TV to the UK in the late days of the 1990s. Since then they have established themselves as a powerful force in digital TV broadcasting. Sky was also the first digital TV provider to operate a solely subscription based service.

    Today Sky offers a fantastic range of channels, which, at 330 and rising, is more than three times as many as their nearest rivals. Sky also trounces the opposition in terms of HD content. With a Sky HD subscription viewers have access to more than 50 high definition TV channels.

    These channels are, of course, delivered into homes via satellite, the signal being received by a satellite dish that will be installed by Sky’s own engineers when you subscribe.

    Subscribers are also issued with a Sky+ HD set-top box. This fantastic gadget allows you to pause and rewind live TV shows so you never miss a minute of action if you want to run a put the kettle on.

    It also lets and lets you record up to two programmes at the same time. This is ideal if you have any favourite programmes clashing with each other. Entire series can also be scheduled to record at the touch of a button guaranteeing you’ll never miss a crucial episode of that favourite drama ever again.

    Programmes are recorded onto an internal hard drive. The current top of the line Sky+ box features an internal 1TB drive that allows you to record and store hundreds of hours of programming. And, unlike recordable DVDs and old video cassettes there is no loss in picture quality caused by handling or repeated viewing.

    With Sky digital TV you can also add options for broadband Internet access and inclusive telephone calls.

    Pros

    • Greatest number of channels at 300+
    • Sky+ set-top box records up to two shows at a time onto an internal hard disc up to 1TB in capacity
    • Up to 66 HD channels - More than any other provider
    • Inclusive broadband and calls options

    Cons

    • Requires a satellite dish to be installed on the side of your property
    • Box must be connected to a land line to qualify for free installation

    Virgin Media

    The digital TV service from Virgin Media is transmitted via underground cables, not through the air as with Sky.

    While this is ideal in some respects it also means that you can only receive Virgin Media TV if you live in an area that is connected to the Virgin Media cable network. Currently Virgin Media claims to be able to service some 55% of UK homes with TV, broadband and phone services.

    With a Virgin Media digital TV subscription you can get up to 160 great channels including options that include, for a small additional cost, channels such as Sky 1, Comedy Central, Disney, ESPN & Sky Sports.

    Virgin Media TV viewers can also enjoy HD content piped straight into their homes. There is also a small amount of on-demand 3D content available on a pay-per-view basis.

    Pros

    • Up to 230+ channels depending upon subscription
    • No need for a satellite dish or TV aerial
    • Excellent on-demand service
    • Fast broadband options up to 100Mb
    • Inclusive calls options

    Cons

    • Almost half of UK homes are not covered
    • All Virgin Media packages and bundles are offered on 18 month contracts

    BT Vision

    The digital TV service from BT Vision is based around the core Freeview channels so you will still need a traditional TV aerial to receive TV channels on BT Vision.

    Other channels are added by means of Viewing Packs, each of which is themed, such as the Kids Pack, Sports Pack and film Club.

    Yet more channels can be added from just a few pounds per month including Sky Sports and ESPN.

    Pros

    • Can be combined with up to 40Mb broadband
    • Good range of on-demand content
    • BT covers most of the UK
    • Good inclusive calls options available

    Cons

    • Requires a working TV aerial to receive channels
    • Some packages are only offered on 24 month contracts

    Why is it that only Sky offers standalone TV packages? I can't be the only home user who needs business-level broadband, including proxy servers (which Sky stopped when it started using Google) so I can send emails from my work account and various domains I own. (Because there are several, it's easier to do this via a client, not a browser, before anyone suggests the browser-based alternative). Bundles are no use to me at all, and I really get cross that I am paying so much more for so much less…

    (Not sure what Maureen (above) is talking about, BTW: the number for existing customers to ring is 08442 410 266 - I Googled to find it and used it two days ago. Select the appropriate menu item, and when you get through to someone, tell them you want to downgrade. Simples!

    Having had serious problems with Sky we are fed up with their service and want to use an alternative. Virgin do not have cable in our area, and BT want to sell us broadband and telephone which we dont want. Is there no alternative but Freeserve? We do have a Sky box - can we use this as a "freebox" to get TV programmes?

    Who are the best people to contact to get a freeview box? My broadband speed from BT is too slow to view via broadband so cannot get a contract with any of the usual (Virgin, Talktalk etc).

    We cuurently have Sky and are experiencing horrendous problems with various Chanels not picking up signals , not recording etc . It isn't always the same channels.

    I have tried the on ilne solutions to no avail and tried getting hold of Sky but it is now becoming an absolute pain .

    If it carries on iike this we will have no alternative but to cancel but I'm not sure who offers bundles in my area which is PR7

    Hi Linda

    Thanks for your question and sorry to hear that your having trouble receiving your TV service. Sky can arrange for an engineer to re-site the dish, this will be free if you are within your initial 12 month contract, but £65 otherwise. If you still want to look at alternatives to Sky you can send me your postcode and I'll check what options are available in your area.

    Thanks

    i currently have sky but due to a rapidly growing tree my signal is being blocked and the picture pixelates and cuts out, if we can get a signal at all. I don't think cable TV is available in my area and i believe freesat requires a dish so i would probably not receive a signal for this due to the tree? is my only other option a freeview box?

    We are with sky, but we never ever watch the movie channels, so why pay for them, we try getting hold of sky but they only speak to new customers on line, and have to phone them I see they offer NEW customers the HD box, we have been with them for 14 years and never even get a offer for a HD box, so unfair, so how do we Downgrade from sky movies.

    Hi Amie

    Thanks for your question. I'm afraid Talk Talk TV comes with broadband and phone so you won't be able to get it on its own. I'm not sure why Talk Talk won't give you a new number, but its best to explain to them the situation you're in at the moment with regards to the threatening calls and see if that works. If you cancel your Talk Talk package you will have to pay a hefty cancellation charge so it's best to avoid this if possible.

    Hope that helps,

    Hannah - Cable.co.uk

    I am wondering if I could keep my existing TV channels with talk talk but change my land line and broadband to another company? Please let me know as talk talk won't change my number as I did ask for one when I signed up with them. They still have me on my old BT number and I'm getting threatening calls
