Flexibility

With our Sky Sports Boost you can dip in and out of the sports you want, when you want. It’s the ultimate flexible Sports package built for how you watch TV today. You simply pay for a month at a time, tell us when you want to cancel and we'll switch it off until you need it again. So if you want to watch a particular sporting event, but not pay for the whole year, then simply add our Sky Sports Boost for the month when your chosen events occur, sit back and become the ultimate armchair fan. With BT, you'll have to sign a 12 month contract to get BT Sports or take BT's more expensive Infinity package, either way, it'll end up costing you more and you’re stuck in a contract. There's no contract with our Sky Sports Boost making it the most flexible package on YouView. 

Will BT Sport be available on YouView from TalkTalk?

BT Sport 1 and 2 will not be available on YouView from TalkTalk but we're still the only place on YouView to see all 5 Sky Sports channels, including Sky Sports F1. BT sports will only be able to offer a fraction of Premiership games, as little as two a week, and most of these will be on Saturday afternoon. Sky Sports continues to be THE home of sport with 116 exclusive live Barclays Premier League football games – most on Sunday afternoons. So if you’re a real footie lover, and want to watch all the best matches from your sofa, then taking our Sky Sports Boost is the only way to make sure you don't miss out on the big games everyone’s talking about. 

Sky Sports on TalkTalk offer the most important sporting tournaments, the best teams and every single Formula 1 race. Our Sky Sports Boost has the most comprehensive Sports coverage on TV. 

Will a customer still be able to watch Sky Sports with TalkTalk?

Yes. Sky Sports remains the home of sport and YouView from TalkTalk continues to be the only way to receive all 5 Sky Sports channels including Sky Sports F1 ® on YouView. YouView from BT does not offer any Sky Sports channels. So if you choose YouView from BT and love Sport, you'll be missing out on 3 out of 4 Premiership matches and the cream of international sport.
