Can I record with Essentials TV?

The YouView box provided with Essentials TV comes with all the great features of the YouView+ box like 7 day catchup and the ability to pause and rewind live TV but does not have the ability to record. If you want to benefit from being able to record live TV, why not sign up to TalkTalk Plus TV, broadband and calls.

Which TV package is best for me?

Our Essentials TV, broadband and calls package is perfect if you want more than Freeview. You'll get over 70 Freeview channels and you can access On Demand TV - on your TV - with BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD, Demand5, Milkshake and Dave. You can also pause and rewind live TV for 30 minutes. It includes a YouView box worth £149.

Plus TV, broadband and calls is designed for those who want the best TV plus the ability to pause, rewind and record over 200 hours of your favourite shows. Includes a YouView+ box worth £299.

Can I keep my YouView box?

Yes. The YouView box is yours to keep forever. You can pause and rewind live TV for up to 30 minutes while watching the best programmes on BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4OD and Demand 5.

Why do I need a TV aerial?

Freeview channels are delivered through your TV aerial. With an aerial you will be able to pause and rewind live TV. If you currently receive a good TV signal with stable picture and sound, you'll be able to enjoy over 70 Freeview channels using your existing TV aerial.

If you need a new aerial or repair work to your existing aerial, we can recommend organisations that are certified with the required industry standards. It enables you to watch over 70 digital channels.

How fast will my broadband be?

We'll give you the fastest broadband your phone line can handle. The top speed will depend on the quality of your phone line and where you live.

How much can I download?

As much as you want! Our Essentials TV package has an unlimited download allowance giving you access to as much music, film and TV as you like.

Why do you ask for my telephone number?

We need your phone number so we can check the phone line at your address. This also helps us to calculate the broadband speed you can get. If our checks show there isn't a working phone line at your address you may need a new one. This isn't a problem, you simply tell us a convenient date and time for one of our friendly engineers to visit.

Why do you charge line rental for broadband?

Line rental is the cost that all phone and broadband providers charge for an active phone line into your home.

Some providers use phone lines that are owned by BT which can mean higher line rental. At TalkTalk we own our network and that's why we can offer such great value broadband and competitive priced line rental. You could save even more by taking our annual Value Line Rental

Can I keep my phone number?

Yes, most customers can keep their existing phone number. If you need a new phone line installed at your premises, then we will provide you with a new phone number.

What happens if I'm switching from another broadband provider?

Switching to TalkTalk couldn't be easier. All you need to do is choose the package you want and we take care of the rest. Your old service will be cancelled as soon as your TalkTalk service starts so there won't be any overlap and you won't be double-charged. Your previous provider will credit you for any unused line rental.
