TV Boosts and Channels

There are various TV Boosts we have available for you to get the most out of your YouView service from TalkTalk. 

For certain TV Boosts you will need to:

  • Have a broadband speed of 5Mb or greater. To check your current Broadband speed use our online Broadband speed checker.
  • Use a Huawei YouView Box supplied by TalkTalk

To subscribe to a channel simply select it in the YouView guide and then follow the onscreen instructions. You can also add and remove TV Boosts in My Account.

Important notice

If you have a speed of 5Mb or greater and are unable to add a TV Boost through YouView or My Account you will need to contact us.
