On Demand TV explained...

TV on demand, also known as video on demand, is a revolutionary digital television service that lets you watch pretty much whatever you like whenever you want to.

On-demand TV gives you the freedom to choose from hundreds, even thousands, of television programmes and films at your convenience. You can watch entire seasons of your favourite shows or catch the year’s most popular big screen releases right in your living room without ever leaving the house.

Given our busy lifestyles, TV on demand is truly a blessing in the era of digital television, allowing us to enjoy the best entertainment out there without compromise.

TV on demand providers

Most of the UK’s biggest digital television providers operate TV on demand services, including Sky, Virgin Media, BT and TalkTalk. Some of the popular and more affordable TV on demand services are also offered online, like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

TV on demand services

The most popular TV on demand services right now are Sky Go, Now TV, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

Sky Go gives viewers access to hundreds of TV shows and films in an instant at no additional monthly cost for Sky TV customers. You can stream live TV or access programmes from the on demand library from up to two devices, including tablets, mobiles or games consoles. If two devices isn't enough for you, you can upgrade to Sky Go Extra, although this is an additional fee.

Now TV, on the other hand, is Sky’s standalone, internet TV on demand service that can be accessed using a Now TV set-top box, a computer, smartphone or games console. Designed for customers who do not have paid-for digital television, Now TV offers a huge library of content on a pay-as-you-go or pay-monthly basis, including all 11 Sky Cinema channels, which offer new premieres every day of the week.

Netflix is an online TV on demand service that gives unlimited access to thousands of movies and TV shows — including original content like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Black Mirror — from an impressive range of genres for a flat monthly fee. Available in HD or UHD resolutions, Netflix content can be accessed using a wide range of devices, such as computers, smart TVs, games consoles, tablets and smartphones, making it truly on demand, even on the move.

Amazon Prime Video is another internet TV on demand service, with a vast catalogue of films and TV episodes. Like Netflix and Now TV, this too is available on a monthly subscription, as well as a pay-per-view basis for quick and easy rentals.

TV on demand devices

As mentioned before, on-demand TV services are available on a range of devices, from computers and laptops to video game consoles, smart televisions, Blu-ray players, tablets and smartphones.

However, there are also set-top boxes dedicated to offering numerous ways to watch TV on demand.

Virgin's V6 or TiVo

Virgin's set-top boxes, the new V6 and the older TiVo, are both digital video recorders (DVRs) that enable you to record, pause and rewind live television to relive those unmissable moments over and over. Aside from access to live channels, you can catch up with programmes that have already aired and access thousands of hours of TV on demand.

Tired of missing out on your favourite series? With the V6 or TiVo, you can set-up ‘Wishlists’ for specific shows, directors and actors and it will automatically record them for you to watch at your leisure, or use the powerful new SeriesLink+ to group entire series together across multiple platforms, including recordings and on-demand programmes.

YouView

YouView is an Ofcom-endorsed set-top box that gives you unfettered access to an extensive array of digital terrestrial television channels, radio stations and on demand TV services using a broadband and/or aerial connection.

What’s more, it also doubles as a Personal Video Recorder (PVR), enabling you to record live television. You can also watch all the major catch-up TV services, including BBC iPlayer, All 4, ITV Player and My5.

Compare TV on Demand

The growing number of choices for TV on demand services can be slightly overwhelming at first. Our easy to use comparison table above will help you compare all these options in a clear, concise manner and pick the one that’s best suited to your needs.
