TalkTalk has revamped its Plus TV package which will incorporates seven Sky channels including Sky 1, as standard from April 5 onwards.
The seven Sky channels – Sky 1, Sky 2, Sky Sports News, Sky Living, Sky Living It, Sky Arts 1 and Sky Arts 2 – are currently available to Plus TV customers as an extra TalkTalk TV bundle, TV Starter Boost which costs £5/month extra.
As a result of this, the basic price for TalkTalk Plus TV will also be increasing from £15.50/month to £18.50/month. That’s an increase of £3 or a £2 discount to customers who were already taking the TV Starter Boost.
TV Essentials customers will be able to order the TV Starter Boost as normal.
From launch, subscribers will also be able to access programmes from Sky 1, Sky Living and Sky Arts on demand, a feature which we revealed was coming to TalkTalk TV last November.
