Other TV Providers

So who else can you choose if you don’t want to go with Sky?

  • Freeview offers 80 free-to-air channels directly via your smart TV at no additional cost.
  • Freesat provides the same channels via an existing satellite dish. You’ll need a decoder, or box, to accept and decode the signal.
  • BT (British Telecom) have heavily invested in their TV and include the BT Sports free for the first 12 months.
  • TalkTalk has entered the market with a limited offering. Poor customer services and a 24-month contract could put people off opting for this provider.
  • Virgin Media bundle all channels including Sky and BT with their cable broadband services. You can only receive the product if you have Virgin cable in your street.
  • Now TV is Sky’s on-demand service with monthly contracts.

Guide to Choosing the Best Provider for Your Home

With so much choice around, how do you choose the service best for your circumstance? Our guide below should help you through the minefield.

1) Decide on the Channels and Service You Need

With so much choice, you may find selecting a provider somewhat overwhelming at first, so it’s best to decide on the channels you’ll really watch. Ask yourself the following:

  • Will I need on-demand or catch-up services? If so, you’ll need a fast broadband connection.
  • Are the sports channels required?
  • What about the kid’s channels such as Disney or Nickelodeon?
  • Do you need to watch TV in more than one room?
  • How about the requirement to pause live broadcasts?
  • And don’t forget the thousands of movies available. If you’re a movie buff, then check those offers as well.

Each option adds to the monthly cost of any package. The entry-level bundles generally only broadcast free-to-air services with a few proprietary channels such as Sky 1.

2) Select The Sports Channels Required

Sky and BT dominate the pay sports channels. Only BT air the Champions League games with the Premiership split between the two rivals.

The table below shows how to access the channels.

Sports Channels Providers Chart

Channel Sky BT TalkTalk Virgin Now TV
Sky Sports Channels YES YES YES YES YES
BT Sports Channels YES YES YES YES NO

Tip: It’s worth trying to bundle the sports packages rather than performing a separate upgrade because it works out cheaper.

3) Decide on Your Monthly Budget

As we already pay the licence fee, the thought of paying even more money may at first seem harsh, especially with the Freeview services available through most modern smart televisions.

However, the small monthly cost of the entry-level packages mostly include a broadband connection, line rental and some free calls.

Below are the cheapest bundles by provider:

Cheapest TV Deals by Supplier Chart

Company Channels Price/ Mth Set-up Cost
Sky TV Original with free Sky Q box (18-month contract) 270 £22.00 £20.00
Virgin Player Bundle incl. line rental, VIVID fibre and weekend calls (12-month contract) 70 £33.00 £20.00
BT Start incl. Infinity fibre, TV, BT Sport, evening/ weekend calls and line rental (12-month contract) 80 £34.99 £19.99
TalkTalk fast broadband and TV (24-month contract) 80 £19.95 £25.00

Tip: Check the length of your contract as Sky is 18 months and TalkTalk 24 months. Check the channels you’re receiving as well.

4) Bundle Services For Value

As mentioned above, you can receive your TV as part of a bundled package that includes everything you need to get online, make free telephone calls and watch your favourite programmes.

For most people the basic packages are sufficient. The monthly cost only starts to increase once you start adding the premium channels such as sports and movies.

So check our comparison tables to see what deal suits your needs.

Tips To Reduce Costs For Existing Customers

Many people complain that the best deals are for new customers only and to a degree, that’s still the case. So you have to work hard to get the discounts stacked in your favour. Try the following to reduce your costs:

  • Call your provider and ask for a deal, you may be surprised by the outcome of the call.
  • Threaten to leave by discussing your account with the retention team.
  • Cancel your account and wait for the offers to come to you.
  • Add in additional services to bundle your package for better value for money.
  • Reducing your channel selection could activate some special deals.

Tip: If you’re a Sky customer you’ll receive a discount of 33% immediately after you cancel your account via their app. This discount increases to 50% after three weeks and up to 75% a month after the cancellation takes effect.
