Why do I have two different PINs for TalkTalk TV?

With TalkTalk TV you will be given two PINs, your TalkTalk PIN which will come with your welcome pack and your YouView PIN.

Your two different PINs let you manage different parts of your TalkTalk TV service while also keeping them separate. For instance, you can let members of your family or household have access to programmes being shown pre-watershed, without giving them the ability to buy premium content or add to your bill.

You’ll need your TalkTalk PIN when you want to buy paid-for content like channel Boosts and rentals. Find out more.

Your YouView PIN is used to confirm parental controls and to make sure younger viewers aren’t watching what they shouldn’t be. Find out more.
