TalkTalk TV viewers will soon have the opportunity to watch even more live sport via their YouView set-top box.

Boxing channel BoxNation is joining the TV platform, along with Premier Sports, which offers rugby league, ice hockey, NASCAR, Gaelic football, hurling, mixed martial arts and more.


The channels will become available to TalkTalk TV viewers from Friday August 22nd.

BoxNation - Britain’s only 24-hour boxing channel - will be available as a TV Boost for £12 per month. Customers can sign up on a month-by-month basis, with no ongoing commitment.

September’s highlights on the channel include the IBF World Super-Bantamweight Championship between Spaniard Kiko Martinez and Belfast hero Carl Frampton, and Floyd Mayweather’s WBC and WBA Super World Welterweight championship match against Marcos Madiana, live from Las Vegas.

Premier Sports includes fixtures from Australia’s National Rugby League, and Four Nations coverage including England vs Samoa in late October.

Ice Hockey fans can watch 15 games per week from the NHL, while motor sport enthusiasts can look forward to the NASCAR Sprint Cup from Bristol Motor Speedway on August 23rd.

TalkTalk TV viewers are already able to access Sky Sports via their YouView set-top box. The Sky Sports Boost is currently priced at £15 per month for three months, down from the normal price of £30 per month.

With the launch of Sky Sports 5 - the new home of European football on the pay-TV platform - the Sky Sports Boost now offers six channels.

Pay-TV sport is available to TalkTalk subscribers with an Essentials TV or Plus TV bundle.

These packages offer high-speed broadband, home phone calls, and a YouView set-top box, which allows viewers to access premium content on-demand and catch-up services.

TalkTalk's Essentials TV package is currently priced at £4.25 per month plus line rental for six months, rising to £8.50 per month thereafter.

Plus TV is also half-price for six months, costing an initial £9.25 per month plus line rental before increasing to £18.50 per month.

Both packages are currently available with a £100 Love2shop voucher.
