TalkTalk TV

TalkTalk TV is available to TalkTalk broadband customers for an additional cost of £5 a month. TalkTalk TV has recently added a whole host of new channels you can access in addition to Freeview channels and other services such as NOW and Netflix.

TalkTalk TV 4K Box

When you subscribe to TalkTalk TV, you'll be able to access all your content via the Netgem TV 4K box. It's a sleek little streaming device that gives you access to over 70 live channels and 30 top streaming services, all in one place.

How much is TalkTalk TV?

TalkTalk TV comes at an additional cost of £5 a month and is only available to TalkTalk broadband customers, so the cost of the TV service will just be added to your broadband bill.

For example, if your TalkTalk Fibre 35 & TalkTalk 4K TV package is £28 a month, this would break down to £23 a month for broadband and £5 for TalkTalk TV.

TalkTalk TV channels

You can access a number of services and watch a huge selection of channels, movies and TV shows via your TalkTalk TV YouView set-top box. Let's take a closer look at what they are.

Freeview on TalkTalk TV

Out of the box, your TalkTalk TV 4K box gives you access to over 70 Freeview channels. These include all the standard BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 networks, as well as news channels.

Sky channels on TalkTalk TV via NOW

You can easily add a NOW TV membership to your TalkTalk TV 4K. box, giving you access to all of Sky's exclusive and original content.

Once you have signed up to NOW, you can watch thousands of TV shows and films, from Sky originals and HBO exclusives to box sets of your favourite classic shows, movies and live sport. Choose from Entertainment, Kids, Sky Cinema, Sky Sports and Hayu reality TV subscriptions.

See our guide on what channels are on NOW TV for more details on channels and TV shows you can watch on NOW.

Unlike traditional Sky packages, NOW is available on a month-by-month basis, so there's no long-term commitment required. If you want to sign up just to watch Succession, The Last of Us or House of the Dragon, you can cancel once the final episode airs if you want.

Free NOW Boost on TalkTalk TV

When customers subscribe to NOW they're given the option to add on a NOW Boost for £5 a month. This gives you ad-free streaming, full HD viewing, Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, smoother streaming on sports channels (streaming at 50 frames per second) and the ability to stream on three devices at the same time.

TalkTalk TV customers receive a NOW Boost free of charge as part of their subscription.

TNT Sports (BT Sport) on TalkTalk TV

TNT Sports (formerly called BT Sport) is a must for any devout sports fan, with every UEFA Champions League match and key Premier League and FA Cup fixtures, as well as Premiership Rugby UFC, NBA and Major League Baseball MotoGP, World Rally Championship and Indy Car Series racing to name just a few.

Amazon Prime and Netflix on TalkTalk TV

TalkTalk TV customers can use their set-top box to access other streaming services, like Netflix and Amazon Prime, via the Apps or the TV Guide.

Once you have signed up to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video on their website, you can then simply log in to your account to view all your favourite binge-worthy content on your TalkTalk TV set-top box.
