If you’re a regular TV viewer like millions of other individuals in the UK, then you have your own preferences. You also know that you have an array of choices when it comes to the TV package that is right for your needs. But this is where it gets a bit tricky: which package should you choose? If you already have a TV package but would like to switch, it becomes even more difficult. With so many packages to choose from, how do you know you are making the right decision?


What type of household do you have?

This is the first question you should ask yourself. Determining this will help you choose a suitable package, especially if you are considering a bundled TV, Internet, and phone package. You can get a great deal if you know exactly what you are looking for.

The average household

The average household is a family of four who regularly surf the Internet and check their email, make several calls during the day, and do not necessarily watch loads of TV during the week. For these activities, you would not really need extensive digital coverage. You don’t have to be very picky when it comes to your TV bundled package, as anything simple will do.

TV packages are quite extensive – so choose yours carefully

Just make sure you select a provider that can give you excellent customer service and is available at any time during the day. Also, it would be wise to opt for a package which gives you unlimited UK calls and even unlimited anytime calls for a certain small fee.

The “digital” household

If your family is the type that wants everything it can get from the digital world, then you might as well go for an “all-in” package that gives you the sweetest deal. This would include everything you can imagine – from on-demand material to unlimited calls to an unrestricted broadband experience. There are plenty of providers offering this type of package. But it would be wise for you to select a provider that can give you additional services and a digital box where you can record your favourite programmes and access on-demand material. If you’re a sports fan, you can also choose a package which gives you live sports from around the globe.

The “so-so” household

If you’re not really a big gadget or digital world fan, don’t spend too much time at home, or only go home and watch television in the evenings or on weekends but would still like to be connected to the world around you, then you can opt for a simple bundled package. However, it would be best to select a package that can give you free calls from a certain time period, such as 7pm until 6am, to other landlines, as well as broadband so you can still surf the Internet (and watch some good TV shows) whenever you are at home.

There are plenty of TV packages for you to choose from. The important point, though, is to select the best one for your needs. In this regard, bundled packages are good, and you can always choose to simplify or expand them according to your preferences.
