Compare TV Packages explained...

Not too long ago many people got by with just five terrestrial TV channels. Fast forward a decade and the UK TV landscape has been transformed.

With oodles of choice, dedicated sports and movie channels, amazing movie-quality drama from the US and on-demand options that free you from TV schedules once and for all, there’s now more reasons than ever to stay in.

Things to consider when comparing TV packages

Can I combine my TV with other services?

As with other household bills, combining your TV with other services from the same provider, such as broadband, mobile phone and home phone, can result in some huge savings. With these amounting to as much as hundreds of pounds per year, it’s always worth seeing if you can get your TV from the same provider.

Do I want to be able to watch pay-TV channels on a mobile device?

Sky and Virgin Media both offer apps that enable you watch their channels on phones, tablets and the web. If this is a primary consideration for you, it might be worth choosing one of these over their rivals.

How much storage do I need?

The set top boxes that pay-TV providers provide differ greatly. Not least in storage, with some offering as much one Terrabyte of capacity.

If you think you’re going to want to store entire series of your favourite programmes, it might be worth opting for the larger storage models.

These also enable you to store more HD content, which takes up more of a set top box’s capacity.

Choosing a TV package

Other than how much you want to spend, perhaps the first and most obvious thing you need to ask yourself when choosing a TV package is what programming you most enjoy.

Viewing figures reveal the biggest draws for pay-TV packages are sports, kids programs and movies. So it’s perhaps not surprising that all the major broadcasters offer oodles of sports, children’s TV and movie-focussed packages and channels, all competing for your monthly TV spend.

But the great thing about pay-TV is that mainstream programming is only a part of the story. Channels now available include niche interests such as the Sci-Fi channel, the fan-focussed Liverpool FC, Manchester United and Chelsea channels and the brilliant Sky Atlantic, which bags the very best HBO drama and comedy.

Comparing sports TV deals

The titans of UK pay-TV sports programming are BT, Sky, Virgin Media and ESPN, all of whom offer a mix of crown-jewels sports events and minority sports.

With five dedicated sports channels, however, Sky is most people’s choice of the UK’s leading sports broadcaster. Not least thanks to the relatively recently launched Formula One channel that covers every race of the season in full.

The good news is that you don’t have to be a Sky customer to get Sky’s sports channels. Virgin Media and BT customers can add them to their package for an extra monthly charge.

In 2013, BT will begin showing live Premier League football on the BT Sport channel – as the company goes from broadcasting others’ channels to helming a TV channel of its own.

Standalone channel ESPN is also available to Sky, Virgin Media and BT customers. Once again, however, this includes an additional monthly charge.

Comparing movies TV packages

Premieres come as standard with pay-TV movies channels – whether it’s Hollywood blockbusters or indie cinema.

Sky once again leads the field with 11 movie channels, all of which can be enjoyed at home or on mobile devices courtesy of the Sky Go app. But as with Sky Sports channels, customers of BT, TalkTalk or Virgin Media are required to pay extra and add Sky’s Movies channels to their bundle.

TalkTalk, Virgin Media and BT also all offer on-demand movies services, accessed via their respective set top boxes.

Kids TV packages compared

The likes of the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon have everything to keep the kids entertained, with Ben 10, Camp Rock and Phineas and Ferb all firm favourites with younger viewers.

All of these are part of the four main pay-TV providers’ kid TV offering. Here’s a taste of the channels that are available:

  • Disney Channel

  • Disney XD

  • Nickelodeon

  • Nick Jr

  • Cartoon Network

  • Boomerang

  • Disney Channel On Demand

  • Disney Junior On Demand

  • Disney XD On Demand

  • CN On Demand
