TalkTalk deal gives you Sky Sports half price for the entire 2016/17 Premier League season

TalkTalk’s launched a new deal that sees you paying £15/month for access to all of the Sky Sports channels for the duration of the entire 2016/17 Premier League season. 

The Sky Sports Boost gives you access to Sky Sports 1-5 and Sky Sports F1 and normally costs £30/month. 

Customers who sign up for the Boost between now and December 22 will be able to get the Boost for free for one month and then pay half the usual price for the following 17 months.

To get TalkTalk TV you’ll need to be a TalkTalk broadband customer signed up to the TalkTalk Essentials or Plus packages. 

Essentials TV comes with a basic YouView set-top box which gives you access to catch-up content from BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, All 4 and Demand 5 as well as Netflix – although the lack of a hard drive means you can’t record any shows. Essentials TV costs £7.50/month for the first three months and £10/month after that. 

If you want to be able record matches, you’ll need to get Plus TV, which costs £10/month. The YouView set-top box you get with this comes with a 350 GB hard drive (200 hours SD, 80 hours HD) alongside all of the usual catch-up services. 

Both of the set-top boxes give you access to digital terrestrial channels delivered through your aerial and extra pay TV channels delivered over a broadband connection. You’ll need to take TalkTalk line rental, which costs either £17.70/month or £191.60 up front for 12 month’s worth.

This money-saving deal comes ahead of a number of other freebies and contract upgrades TalkTalk has promised in the wake of the well-publicised hack. Details, including email addresses, dates of birth and account numbers, of thousands of customers were taken from TalkTalk in the wake of a DDoS attack which took the ISP’s website offline in late October. 

If you’re sticking around there is, of course, nothing to stop you from signing up for this deal after you’ve seen what freebies TalkTalk’s got to offer.
