*The "up to" speed displayed in Mb is the maximum possible speed you are likely to receive for this product. The actual speed you will get depends on your cabling, your area and (with non-fibre optic products) time of day and how far you are from the telephone exchange. Most providers will tell you the likely speed you will receive when you begin your online sign up - this may differ from the speed displayed in the table.

The deals available at your postcode are subject to local availability. The provider will confirm availability for your line.

We aim to take the strain out of broadband comparison. Good broadband deals aren't just about the price, it's also about what's included in the product, the speeds offered and any extra incentives providers are offering. To balance all of these, we have developed a ranking formula that takes into account deals that are proving to be popular with our customers, that are competitive in the maket and have a smooth switching process.

If you prefer, you can sort deals by the average monthly cost, which is all of the costs - including any compulsory upfront costs such as router delivery or installation fee - divided by the length of the contract. Or you can sort by the total contract cost for all packages which let’s you see the total spend for the whole contract period

uSwitch services are provided at no cost to you, but we may receive a commission from the companies we refer you to.

BT's TV offering lets you watch what you want, when you want. With a BT YouView+ box, you’ll be able to pause, rewind and record all your favourite TV shows. You never need miss your favourite programme again.

TV from BT

BT's digital TV service gives you complete control over digital TV programming. Not only can you to control it in much the same way as a DVD or video with the review, pause and fast forward buttons, you can also watch any programme at any time, meaning that you’re no longer beholden to TV schedules.

Better still, BT also runs a great movie download service. You can choose from a selection of brand new movies to buy, which are downloaded to your YouView box via your broadband connection. Select movies are even available to watch in glorious 3D, if your TV has that capability.

How does the BT YouView box work?

The BT YouView boxes are best described as digital recorders. Rather like a computer, they work by letting you store content on their onboard hard drives. They also allow you to record up to 600 hours of TV, depending upon which model you choose.

BT’s gadgets also work as a Freeview set-top box so you’ll be able to take control of how you watch channels on Freeview. This also means that there’s no need for a separate device in your sitting room.

Installing a YouView box is easy. All you have to do is connect it to your existing TV aerial to get Freeview TV. It’s then just a matter of hooking your set-top box up to your broadband line via the BT Home Hub or Smart Hub.

Can anyone get BT TV?

In order to be able to get TV from BT, you need to ensure you fulfil these criteria:

  1. You must have a BT residential phone line that provides a broadband connection speed of at least 2Mbps. You can find this out by using uSwitch's speed checker. If you don't receive this speed, it doesn’t necessarily rule you out. You may be able to dramatically boost your speed with the Broadband Accelerator service, whereby a BT engineer will pay you a visit to maximise your connection and boost your speed.

  2. If you want to control Freeview digital TV, it stands to reason that you must reside in an area where Freeview TV reception is available.
