Things to consider when comparing digital TV packages
Think about what you want to get out of using your TV service.
Are you a movie buff looking to enjoy the latest blockbusters? Then
you'll need Sky Movies. Do you want to bring the excitement of F1
(and the engine roar) into your living room and enjoy every race,
or maybe you're a die hard football fan? Then you'll benefit from
Sky Sports or BT Sport, or both. Maybe it's more important that you
never miss an episode of your favourite show, or you want to
discover new ones, and it's easy to do that with Virgin Media
Whatever you want to get out of your TV, there's a digital TV
package to suit you. Start with the features you need, then the
things you'd like, and then ensure that the packages you've
narrowed it down to are at the right price point for you.
What is included with digital TV packages?
Depending on the type of digital TV service you buy, and the TV
provider you go with, features do vary. However, these digital TV
features are common to all services:
- Catch Up TV - watch the last 7 days worth of TV again. And
again if you like!
- Series link & TV recommendations - Virgin Media's TiVo
service is particularly good at suggesting shows you might like
based on your previous selections
- Record & save TV shows - all digital TV set top boxes have
storage space for your shows
- Pause, rewind & record live shows - most set top boxes let
you record up to 3 shows while you watch a fourth, so there's never
a reason to miss an episode
Your TV package will include access to digital channels,
services and the option to bolt-on premium services, like Sky
Movies and Sky Sports. If you're not sure which premium bolt-ons to
go for, or if they'd be good value for your household, why not give
Simplifydigital a call and let a friendly broadband & TV expert
recommend the right digital TV package for you? If you like the
service we recommend we can even arrange your switch right then and
