How to choose the best TV and broadband deal
Here are the main factors you’ll want to consider when comparing TV and broadband deals.
Don’t forget, you can enter your postcode (if you haven’t already) to see the best broadband and TV deals available to choose from us.
Download limits relate to your broadband usage, or how much you download from the internet. If you’re online a lot, you may not want to place a limit on your connection.
Do read up on broadband speeds before choosing any TV and internet packages or fibre-optic broadband deals. If you routinely stream large HD videos or play online games, you’ll need a faster internet connection.
Our best TV and broadband deals for speed:
All of our TV and broadband deals come on a fixed-term contract, which just means that you’ll have both services for 18- or 24-months. Should you change your mind, you can pay a fee and leave the contract early. Otherwise, when you’ve completed this minimum term, our TV and broadband packages will usually move onto a 30-day rolling contract on their own.
To avoid unwanted surprises and get the best value for money TV and internet packages, make sure you look past the initial price you’ll pay and bear in mind how packages tend to go up in price once your offer period ends.
If affordability is the most important factor for you, then Stream from Virgin Media may be a good alternative to traditional TV services. Stream gives you super flexible entertainment and 10% credit back on selected entertainment subscriptions you add to the service.
More reasons to choose TV and broadband deals
Simplicity: Combining both services into one deal can make everything easier to manage as TV and internet packages have one point of contact, one fixed-term contract and a bill you can keep track of.
Price: Bundling broadband and TV deals into the same package can sometimes work out cheaper than having separate suppliers.
Extras: Incentives are sometimes included to add more value to your package, so look out for extras when browsing our best TV and broadband deals. You can compare our latest offers on TV and broadband deals (labelled against the respective packages) above.
Multi-room TV: Fancy a TV box for the guest bedroom and one for the kids? Our TV and broadband deals all come with the TV 360 box, plus the chance to add up to two 360 Mini boxes, if you’d prefer multi-room TV service, for a bit more each month.
This is fully connected entertainment. Our TV and broadband deals combine all the benefits of superfast fibre broadband with our best-ever digital TV service – TV 360 can be watched at home, online and on the go. Here’s a taste of what to expect:
- Family favourites – Channels including sports, movies, drama and entertainment. You can even add premium channel packs for Sky Sports, TNT Sports and Sky Cinema.
- Streaming services (Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video) if you set up a subscription – Some of our best broadband and TV deals give you Netflix Standard to watch in Full HD, including the Biggest Combo bundle, Biggest Combo Volt bundle and the Mega Volt bundle.
- Convenience – Bundled TV broadband deals save the hassle of paying separate bills to different broadband and TV companies. You’ll pay a single monthly fee for your TV and internet, which could work out cheaper than getting your services from separate providers.
Sure, we have phone, TV and broadband packages – you’ll just need to use our postcode checker (if you haven’t already) and see if they’re available where you are. You’ll probably find that this type of deal is more convenient than paying for a landline separately and it may also work out cheaper for you too.
Just so you know, line rental is included in the monthly cost of our landline, TV and broadband deals – and isn’t charged for broadband and TV deals or our broadband only packages.
You’ll get one contract that covers both services together
You won’t sign a paper copy – simply check and agree to our terms and conditions online. This’ll include details of the price, services, dates and duration of the TV and broadband deals, and you’ll be accepting our policies on fair and acceptable use, cancellation and other legal stuff.
You’ll agree to have TV and broadband for 18- or 24-months (deals vary)
You can only cancel all or part of your package at the end of your minimum term unless you’re prepared to give us 30 days’ notice and pay cancellation fees. There’s some exceptions:
- If you need to move home, there’s no early disconnection fee for taking TV and internet packages with you to your new address.
- If you change your mind during the 14-day cooling off period, you can cancel TV and broadband packages with no fee.
Broadband and TV can continue as usual when your contract ends
You’ll receive an end of contract message before the minimum term of your broadband and TV deal comes to an end and it’ll explain what happens next. If you make no changes when you’ve completed your contract, there’s nothing you need to do to continue enjoying our TV and broadband.
With so many channels to keep you entertained, here are some of the main ways you can receive them.
- Satellite: with a dish installed outside your home.
- Cable: an underground cable will bring you a TV signal. This is what powers our broadband and TV deals.
- Streaming: TV and film services from Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+ or BBC iPlayer offer their content through apps on smart TVs, games consoles or other plug-in devices.
We’re offering a wide selection of TV and internet packages, catering for sports, films, entertainment and more. When you’re with us, you’ll be able to watch the channels included in your package on our Virgin TV 360 box.
We have two methods for how to install Virgin Media broadband and TV deals. Depending on your postcode, you may be offered:
- QuickStart self-installation – just plug the kit in, no drilling or technical know-how needed.
- Or you can book one of our technicians for £30 and they’ll plug in the broadband and TV boxes for you (appointments are £0 where QuickStart is unavailable).
Because we run our own network, unlike a lot of providers, we can get TV and broadband deals up and running on the same day. The WiFi Hub will need to be installed first, then the 360 box and it doesn’t need a satellite dish or TV aerial putting up.
It is indeed! Just follow these quick and easy steps to switch broadband providers. Here’s what’ll happen when you’ve placed your order for one of our TV and broadband packages:
- We’ll be in touch within 48 hours to confirm your installation date.
- You’ll be able to contact your TV and broadband providers to cancel your current contracts.
- Our WiFi Hub and TV 360 box will arrive, and you can either plug them straight in or we can set it up for you.
Of course! You can stream our TV and internet packages at home, online and on the go. Here’s how:
TV box made for streaming
The TV 360 box, provided with our TV and broadband deals, has all the top quality streaming apps built in. From your favourite subscriptions (Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+) to the likes of BBC iPlayer, YouTube, ITVX and more. Everything’s all in one place, easy to get to.
Voice Control means you only have to say the name of the app to open it and you can add the streaming services you really like to your Favourites.
Stream 100 live TV channels anywhere in the UK
The Virgin TV Go streaming service is included for up to five devices, with all our TV and broadband deals. You can use the app at no extra cost and wherever you are, anywhere you have an internet connection in the UK.
It’s really easy to set up Netflix with Virgin Media and, when you’re ready, you can sign in to the app on the TV 360 box and start streaming. You can choose to pay for your subscription through your monthly Virgin Media bill, even if you decide not to take one of our best broadband and TV deals with Netflix already included.
Pick and mix your streaming services each month
Another great way to stream Netflix, Disney+ and other favourites is to add Stream from Virgin Media to our TV and broadband deals. This’ll give you at least 10% credit back on selected entertainment subscriptions, plus the freedom to switch up what you want to watch, from month to month.
Virgin Media Fibre Broadband is included in all our packages, even our broadband and TV deals. All you’ll need to do is check your postcode (if you haven’t already), to see if we’re available in your area.
Combining your broadband with other deals like TV and phone is a simple way of keeping track of your services, with a single provider as opposed to three. It can also save you money in the long run and make it easier to switch if you find a better package deal elsewhere. Some providers will also offer exclusive offers and incentives, such as bill credit or free setup, if you buy a bundled package through them.
Why not compare our broadband packages and check what’s more affordable.
