            Oops, we can't find any information about your postcode

            This could be because your property is a new build or your postcode has recently changed. We recommend you check with the providers directly by clicking on the logos below.

            If you’re happy with your current broadband and phone provider, but want a TV package, you can take a TV-only deal from one of the providers listed above. Our comparison page shows you the best TV-only deals that can be taken without abandoning your existing broadband and phone provider.

            How to compare TV-only

            Our comparison tool makes it easy to compare TV-only deals and offers

            It’s easy to find exactly what you’re looking for using our comparison tool. You can arrange results in order of HD channels, total channels, and monthly cost so you can quickly see the TV-only packages that are right for you. Click the ‘see deal’ button at the side of the deal to be taken directly to the provider’s website.

            Availability

            Check what is on offer in your area before buying

            Availability will differ depending on which provider you choose for your TV-only package. Sky TV is a satellite service. If you can have a satellite dish installed on your property and you have a clear line of sight of the sky, you should be good to go. Virgin Media is a cable TV provider. To receive Virgin Media TV you’ll need to live in an area that is connected to the cable network. Type your postcode into the box at the top of the table to see what’s available in your area.

            Check the detail

            Make sure you know what you’re getting

            TV-only packages are just that – TV-only. You won’t get broadband or phone with these TV deals. Be sure to check installation costs and one-off fees before you choose and also check the monthly price. Some packages may only be cheap for a certain length of time (such as six months) so make sure you don’t get caught out when the price rises.

            Reasons to choose TV-only

            You can take broadband and phone from another provider

            Some of the best broadband providers don’t have a TV service. If you’re happy with your current broadband provider, you don’t need to switch to get TV. You can have any of the TV-only packages listed above and keep your current broadband and phone service without any trouble. If you don’t have a broadband or phone service yet, take a look at our broadband comparison page to see what’s available.

            The freedom to watch what you want

            TV packages vary in terms of content. Some come with sport channels while others feature movies and music channels. By taking TV separately to phone and broadband, you’re free to choose whatever type of television package you like. So if you’re a big football fan or more of a movie buff, you’ll be able to find a TV-only package that’s right for you.

            No line rental fees

            As there aren’t any broadband or phone connections with these TV-only options, you won’t have to pay line rental. This makes these TV bundles much cheaper than those with line rental included as standard.

            Pros & cons

            Pros

            • Wide range of channels and content
            • No need to stay with one provider
            • Only pay for what you want

            Cons

            • Only a couple of providers to choose from
            • Not always the cheapest option
            • One-off charges often apply

            Finding the right package for you

            Lots of variety with Sky TV

            Sky has some of the best TV packages for if you are looking for TV only. There’s a huge amount of variety in the bundles on offer, with over 400 channels available. Sky has the largest amount of HD channels amongst UK television providers too, and features bundles that come with Sky Sports and Sky Cinema.

            Virgin Media features the TiVo box

            Virgin Media has hundreds of TV channels available – though not as many as Sky. Some TV packages from Virgin come with BT Sport, Sky Sports, Sky Movies and even international channels. Many come with the TiVo box as standard. This box can store up to 500 hours of recorded content and can let you watch catch-up and TV on demand (but only if you have broadband at home).

            What to remember

            You’ll need to be ready for installation

            Any digital TV provider will need to install its particular equipment at your property. To watch Sky, an engineer will need to install a satellite dish on your property, so be sure to get permission from your landlord or local council (if you need it) before you commit to buy. Virgin Media’s TV service is transmitted via cable. Although unlikely, the provider’s engineer may need to do a spot of digging in and around your property, so bear this in mind before you select a TV-only package.

            Broadband is required to watch catch-up content and TV on demand

            While you can watch satellite and cable TV without broadband, you will need an internet connection in order to watch catch-up content and TV on demand. This includes programmes watched on the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and 4oD. You can find a broadband service on our broadband comparison page.

            How to pick a TV-only package

            It only takes minutes to make your purchase

            When you’ve chosen the TV-only package for you, click the ‘see deal’ button on the right. This will transfer you to the provider’s website. On the website, the package you’ve chosen (along with any deals and offers) will appear, and you can either modify your choice or go straight through to the checkout. Once you’ve finalised your purchase, your new TV-only package will be up and ready within (on average) a couple of weeks.

            Six essential questions before you buy

            1. Can I get TV-only in my area?
            2. What do I want to watch?
            3. How much can I afford?
            4. Can I commit to a contract?
            5. Am I happy with my current broadband provider?
            6. Will it be cheaper to bundle instead?

            Cable.co.uk recommends

            There’s a great package for families

            Choosing a TV-only package can be a challenge, simply because you have a wide range of choices. The key is to be clear about what you want to watch and then find the best package for you and your household. Keep an eye out for the need for cables or a satellite dish, and be sure this won't cause a problem with the owner or local council. Finally, be on the look out for deals which could save you money by bundling your TV with your broadband, rather than sticking to a hunt for the best TV-only deal.
