Being aware of the TV, data and phone tariffs that are required is important because with so many companies offering different deals it can be difficult to measure what exactly will be necessary to fulfil those needs. By comparing the two leading suppliers for digital media throughout the UK can help clarify which service will most likely be suited to your own individual needs.

Other deals can also be found by using other services such as BT Vision, Freeview+, Vodafone, TalkTalk and other well known telecommunication companies to manually create an individually created services to help meet the exact requirements. Whether if it's only internet required with little usage then a dongle from one of the mobile phone companies can help create a cost effective way of accessing the internet than moving to Virgin Media or Sky and having to pay fee's for using the phone line also.

Let's look at the packages that are supplying the well connected family who are in search for the ultimate experience in terms of entertainment, who require calls, large choice of TV channels and unlimited broadband, including those who require the bare essentials but enjoy the minor luxuries.

Sky offer a wide range of bundles and offers.

This comes with 41 channels that can be paused, recorded and rewind with Sky+. Up to 20mb download speeds with 2GB monthly usage allowance that includes evening & weekend UK landline calls at no extra cost with Sky Line Rental.

For the more intensive users Sky offers the above deal but with 93 channels and with unlimited broadband for an extra 12.50 a month, which equals 32.50 plus the 12.25 line rental per month. Sky allow for bundles to added onto the current package of choice, allowing sports or movie fans to add the channels for an extra monthly cost.

A minor precaution with Sky is that a BT phoneline is a must.

The price is 16 for the first 6 months then 29 for the last 6 months including the 13.90 phone line per month.

A benefit of choosing Virgin is the ability to clearly define what package is required, whether it is the L Broadband with M+ Channel package and the XL Phone package. Or if only two of the three options are required also.

A minor precaution with Virgin is that by checking on their website you can find out if your location is suitable for their fibre optic broadband.

Both companies offer different styles of packages and ways to tailor the bundle to best suit your individual needs. Both appeal to many different people for many different reasons, with location and being with BT seeing to be the major decider.
