Brand new TalkTalk player

TalkTalk playerTalkTalk's TV service just keeps getting better and better. Just a few months ago seven Sky entertainment channels were added to the Plus TV package and the movie library was expanded to bring TalkTalk homes hundreds more movies on demand.

Since then TalkTalk has reached over one million TV customers and is now introducing the slick new TalkTalk Player. The new TalkTalk Player will be the home of on-demand movies and entertainment. It will house TalkTalk's movie rental service, TalkTalk Box Office, which has been improved to include more of the latest blockbusters to rent from £4.00 for 48hrs, with many released on same day as the DVD.

Now it's even easier for customers to discover all the channels and movies included in their package, with a new Included Channels feature. Viewers can browse the entire library of over 500 movies and hundreds of hours of on demand programmes, safe in the knowledge that all prices are clearly marked and no payment will be taken until they enter their TalkTalk pin number.

All live channels included within the additional flexible monthly Boosts, and the seven additional Sky channels in the Plus TV package, can now be found in the YouView guide from channel 401 onwards. Other features of the revamped TalkTalk Player include:

  • Powerful search: Find a movie by searching by title, actor, director or keyword.
  • Watchlist: Save movies and shows to watch at another time.
  • More like this: Find similar programmes to your favourite shows.
  • Play all: Press the green button to play every episode in a series back to back.
  • Most popular: Your favourite shows and movies in one place.
  • Currently watching: If you need to leave a programme half way through, head to the 'currently watching' section to return to the exact point where you left off.

Roll out will begin from 11 June with the service becoming available to all one million plus TalkTalk TV homes by 17 June. To access the new TalkTalk Player, customers simply have to connect their YouView box to their router and ensure it is either on or on standby. Once connected, customers can press the TalkTalk button on the remote control to start enjoying the service.
