Free broadband and TV for three months with TalkTalk deal

TalkTalk is offering three months of free YouView TV and broadband with a new deal called The Big Free.

What's better than stuff? Free stuff! TalkTalk is offering three months of free YouView TV and broadband with a new deal called The Big Free.

The gratis deal gives you three months of free television on an Internet-tastic YouView TV set-top box, as well as unlimited Internet use, whether you're a new or existing customer. Update: I've checked with TalkTalk and you do still have to pay line rental during the free period, which costs £15 (or £9.50 if you pay a lump sum up-front).

Once the free trial period is over, your bill goes up to £15.50 per month, plus line rental of £14.95, for a total of £30.45.

The deal throws in extra channels for nowt with the TV Starter Boost, adding Sky 1, Sky 2, Sky Sports News, Sky Living, Sky Livingit, Sky Arts 1 and Sky Arts 2.

If you decide to keep the extra channels after the initial three months, that'll cost an extra £5 per month, taking your monthly total to £35.45.

The package also includes unlimited Internet use, HomeSafe parental control software, and free calls to UK landlines.

TalkTalk reckons the Big Free deal will save you around £46, or a whopping £115 for a similar service from BT. The company certainly has to do something to tempt customers: BT is currently rampaging around the broadband and TV market all guns blazing with the announcement of BT Sport channels and 300Mbps broadband.

What do you think of TalkTalk's Big Free deal? What's the best broadband deal you've seen? Tell me about it in the comments or on our free Facebook wall.
