The broadband firm is joining forces with one of the leading video on demand platforms in Europe to bring customers access to a swatch of extra online content.
The partnership with Rakuten TV will offer those subscribing to TalkTalk’s TV Boost package the chance to enjoy hundreds of movies from an extensive catalogue.
These ‘Rakuten TV Movie Club’ films will be refreshed each week with the new option available from this month.
The TalkTalk TV partnership marks the next stage in Rakuten TV’s strategy to increase its presence in Europe, following the announcement of its extension plans earlier this year, where the platform tripled its distribution from 12 to 42 countries to reach more than 30 million European households.
Along with its catalogue of top movies, there’s also the option to stream content to Smart TVs in 4K HDR.
Along with this new movie offering, TalkTalk has also launched a deal which includes free weekday and weekend calls.
The discount comes to customers taking out its Unlimited Fibre Broadband bundle with average speeds of 38Mbps.
This package costs £24 per month but also now includes Unlimited UK calls for free – usually £10 per month.
Those signing up can take advantage of the discount for 18 months.
Although TalkTalk is offering this new online media it’s also worth noting that Sky currently has a deal which includes Netflix.
The satellite TV firm is offering Sky Entertainment and Ultimate On Demand for £25 per month saving £9 off the usual price.
This bundle includes over 300 channels plus access to Netflix and over 500 Sky Box Sets.
You’ll also get a standard Sky Q box which can store 500 hours of TV and record three shows whilst you watch a fourth.
If you want an improved viewing experience you can upgrade to the Sky Q 2TB box which brings Ultra HD content to your living room and can store 1,000 hours of TV plus there’s the option to record more shows at once.
This option comes with a £199 upfront fee compared to a £20 fee for the standard 1TB box.
