What if I want more channels?

If you want more channels, it's easy to buy extra digital TV services to expand your choice of viewing.

Freeview viewers whose equipment takes a card slot can get a selection of extra channels through Top Up TV.

Through satellite, Sky's entertainment, sports and movie channels have millions of subscribers across the UK.

Digital TV is also available as part of cable packages, and may also be available through your telephone line. Both these options vary across the UK.
