Can I get TalkTalk TV in my area?
TalkTalk’s subscription TV service is one of the cheapest around, and with over 80 channels as standard, it presents a lighter, more affordable alternative to the TV packages offered by other, bigger providers.
You’ll need to take broadband with your TalkTalk TV package though, as the Youview box must be connected to the internet to receive content. So can you get TalkTalk broadband and TV where you are? To check your area...

You have to take TalkTalk broadband with TalkTalk TV
TalkTalk's TV services are sent via the broadband connection, so you have to take TalkTalk broadband in order to get the TV service – and you’ll need to be able to reach download speeds of at least 3Mbps to view the majority of channels without problem.
You will need a higher speed to enjoy the TV boosts
If you take out one of the TV boosts, such as the Sky Sports or Entertainment pack, you’ll need a download speed of at least 5Mbps to receive content. As you can see, TalkTalk TV is all about the broadband, so it’s best to make sure you can reach these speeds if you want to make the most out of your TV pack.
TalkTalk TV channels and on demand content
WIth the standard TV package, you’ll get all the Freeview channels that broadcast in your area as standard, as well as access to the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, All 4 (4oD) and Demand 5. The basic TV package comes free of charge (apart from a £25 instalaltion fee) with any TalkTalk broadband package.
Customers that choose to pay extra for the TV Plus package will have access to an extra 30 entertainment channels, including Sky 1, Sky Living, Sky Arts and Sky Sports News.
TV Boosts offer a wider range of viewing options
You also have the option to add extra channels to either TV package by purchasing any of a range of boosts. Among these boosts are the Kids Boost, which gives you Nick Jr and Cartoon Network, the Asian TV boost, and Sky Cinema and Sky Sports boosts.
Alternatives to TalkTalk TV
If the broadband connection is a sticking point for you, it might be a good idea to look at alternatives. Virgin Media and Sky both offer TV without broadband, though these options are generally more expensive than TalkTalk.
