It also offers complete flexibility. There are no membership or subscription fees tying you in and you only pay for what you watch. Each rental you take out will be available to watch as many times as you like for up to 48hrs at a time and the price of the rental will then be added to your monthly TalkTalk bill.

Most new films will become available on the day they are released on DVD, so you won’t fall behind on the latest releases.

We also always try to give our customers the best deals and promotions we can. You can learn more about our promotional offers, and TalkTalk Box Office’s other features, on the TalkTalk Box Office webpage.
