Sky TV+ Broadband Everyday Lite
Sky TV customers have a choice of two levels of broadband included with their TV package – the free broadband service is Sky Broadband Everyday Lite which gives you up to 20Mb download speeds and 2GB of monthly usage. It’s no longer possible to get Broadband Everyday Lite and Sky TV without the Sky Talk landline and line rental but it makes more sense to get all three anyway, as the broadband costs £5 a month without phone but is free with Sky Talk Freetime.
So the best way to get Sky TV and Sky Broadband Everyday Lite is to take the Sky+ starter package which consists of -
- >> Sky+ box to pause, rewind and record live TV
- >> The Sky Entertainment Pack
- >> Channels including Sky Atlantic, Sky1, Sky Living, Sky Arts, FX, Comedy Central and SyFy
- >> Sky Broadband Everyday Lite – up to 20Mb speeds with 2GB monthly usage
- >> Sky Talk Freetime with unlimited evening and weekend calls to UK landlines
This costs £20 a month plus telephone line rental of £12.25.

Details of the Sky TV+ Broadband Everyday Lite package
The TV element of the package consists of the Sky+ Box and the Sky Entertainment Pack. First to the box, this enables you to pause and rewind live TV and to record and store content in the hard drive. Although there is a bigger box available with 1 terabyte of memory the regular Sky+ box has 500GB of storage space, and this is split in half, giving you 250GB for personal use and 250GB that the box uses to download and store Sky on-demand content.
The Sky Entertainment Pack comes with all the channels that used to form the Variety and Style & Culture Packs - more about Sky TV packages here. The Sky+ starter package includes this pack but you can upgrade to Entertainment Extra if you wish (all available channels) for an extra monthly fee. Similarly Sky Sports and Sky Movies can be added to your package as premium channels at any time.
If at any point you decided to get an HD ready TV and wanted HD channels you could add the HD Pack for an extra £10.25 a month which would enable you to watch any of the channels in your chosen package in HD if there is an HD version. So for example if the Sky Living channel is included in the pack you choose you would also be able to watch Sky Living HD.
