Compare TV Providers explained...

Currently the main TV providers in the UK are Sky, Virgin Media, BT and TalkTalk, which offer a wealth of packaged and premium content aimed at quenching the nation’s growing thirst for quality entertainment.

Here's an overview on what each of the TV providers offers so you can easily compare them and pick the one that’s right one for your needs.

TV Providers

Sky is the UK’s most popular paid-TV provider, with over 12 million subscribers and counting. The Sky Q set-top box is home to hundreds of satellite TV channels, including dozens of its own, many of which are available in a range of packages such as Sports and Cinema.

It also offers extensive on-demand programming and a Sky Go application to watch Sky TV on the move on a laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Virgin Media TV customers can enjoy a selection of over 240 channels, many of which include HD and 3D programming. Its new V6 and older TiVo digital video recorders (DVR) enable you to access on-demand content instantly and allow you to record, pause and rewind live television. With the V6, you can record up to six shows, while the older TiVo only lets you record three.

Virgin TV subscribers also have the option to subscribe to Sky packages, including Sports and Cinema, thus enjoying the best of both worlds.

BT is best known for its affordable TV options that span from access to 100 Freeview channels to a variety of paid-TV packages, including Sports and Cinema packs.

Like Sky and Virgin, BT also offers a set-top box called YouView. Every box has the ability to pause and rewind live TV, and mid- and top-tier versions of the box let you record TV to watch at your convenience. You can also access an array of catch-up TV services such as the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and 4oD, plus on-demand content in both free and pay-per-view basis.

TalkTalk Plus TV subscribers benefit from a free YouView set-top box that connects over broadband to their TV for instant access to up to 80 Freeview channels, the ability to record more than 200 hours of shows, catch-up content from the last seven days and heaps of pay-per-view on-demand programming on the TalkTalk Player.

Those looking to expand their collection can also add TV ‘Boosts’ to their YouView box, covering a range of genres, including sports, lifestyle and kids programming.
