Can you get Sky TV without broadband?
Yes, you can get Sky TV in Ireland without bundling broadband or phone calls.

What is Sky Q Lite?
Sky Q Lite brings you 100+ free-to-air channels, apps and recordings all in one place. Control it all with your voice and enjoy a premium viewing experience at an affordable price.
You can bundle with any broadband product, but you’ll need to upgrade to Signature or Ultimate to bundle Sports, Cinema & Boxsets.
What is Sky Signature?
It’s the name of Sky’s basic TV package that comes with:
- Over 300 channels, including 100+ not on free-to-air
- Over 40 catch up channels
- 10,000 hours of TV on demand

How does it work?

You’ll also get a Sky Q box which allows you to:
- Store up to 500 hours of TV

Once you’ve signed up, you can download the Sky Go app on your mobile, tablet and laptop and watch your top TV picks while on the move.

Sky broadband vs eir, Virgin Media and Vodafone
If you’re wondering how Sky compares to the other major providers, Sky operates off the eir wholesale broadband network, so their broadband service is similar to what you’d get from eir or Vodafone.
In terms of TV, they all offer the option to tailor a package to your needs but Sky is the only provider that lets you enjoy their TV as a standalone plan.
How do you switch to Sky?
Switching to Sky is quick and easy. Just choose which plan you’re interested in and fill in a few details, including your address and bank details.
Sky will look for your Universal Account Number, or UAN, which is an eight digit number used by telecom providers to identify phone lines.
Make sure you contact your current provider to ensure you’re free to switch, and give them the required notice so that you’re not charged after you’ve switched.
You’ll be able to arrange a cut-off date with them for service and then you can confirm an installation date with Sky so you experience as little downtime as possible.
Once the switch happens, you can then cancel any Direct Debits with your current provider.
