How do I choose a TV package? What should I think about?

When you’re comparing tv deals, think about:

  • Your budget
  • If you want multi-room
  • If you want to bundle your TV with broadband and/phone, or a standalone plan.
  • What channels you want - not all providers offer the same channels with their plans.
  • Add-ons - like Sky Cinema, Sky Sports, or additional HD channels, these will more than likely mean an increase in your monthly cost.

What additional TV services can I get?

There are lots of optional extras depending on your provider and what you’re interested in,e.g.:

  • An extra TV box, to give you the ability to watch TV in more than one room. Usually, you will have to pay for the extra box, and there’ll be an additional monthly subscription for multiroom viewing, too.
  • HD channels and boxsets, to supplement the standard channels and content. Some providers offer this as standard, while with others there will be an additional monthly cost.
  • The ability to stream online players - like RTE Player and Virgin Media Player, through your set-top box. Several providers have this option and there’s no extra charge.
  • On-demand content, like movies and TV shows that you can order through your set-top box and pay a once-off fee for.
  • Sports add-ons, like eir sport, Sky Sports or Virgin Media Sports. If you go for an eir plan that includes broadband, you will get eir sport for free, and Virgin Media TV customers get Virgin Media Sport as standard with their packages. Otherwise you will have to pay a monthly subscription.
  • A Sky Cinema add-on with 11 dedicated channels, a new premiere every day, and access to 1,000 movies on demand. There are some other movie channels available as standard from some providers, so make sure to compare these before choosing your deal.

Can I get broadband with my TV package?

If you need broadband in addition to your TV plan, think about bundling them up and getting them both from the same provider - this could save you money in the long-run. Both eir and Vodafone require you to sign up to broadband to get their tv packages.

TV & Broadband packages

Some providers only offer TV as part of a broadband and TV bundle. eir, Sky, Virgin Media and Vodafone all offer TV & broadband bundles.

TV, Broadband & Phone

If you use your home phone and want to keep it then eir, Sky, Virgin Media and Vodafone all offer triple play packages.
