All the information you need to setup your TV Hub


Find all your favourite On Demand players, like BBC iPlayer, alongside subscription services like Netflix, Prime, NOW and Disney+ and more. There’s no lengthy contracts from us either. Just cherry pick the subscriptions you want as and when you want. You’re in control.

Always exit an app and return to the TV Hub Home screen, before turning off your TV box or allowing it to go into standby mode. This will ensure your TV Hub is ready to go next time you turn it back on.

Google Play

Your TalkTalk TV Hub brings you more than just TV. Explore an ever-expanding universe of over 10,000 apps on your TV screen. Movies, TV, fitness, music and games – all right there in one place. Watch, play and do – whatever you want. And just like on your phone, you can download new apps and updates the moment they become available. For more information on how to download an App to your TV Hub, check out our Using Google Play article. For instructions on how to check for app updates, please see TV Software updates and select TalkTalk TV Hub. 


Featured Apps

You’ll find some apps are already pre-installed on your TV Hub. We call these ‘Featured Apps’. A table below shows the Featured Apps which will be available on your box. It's important to have a TV aerial plugged into your TV box to benefit from the full features of your Players and Apps. Some Featured Apps below will only display when a TV aerial is detected.

Please use the power cable provided with your new TV Hub and not a 3rd party or existing cable. 

We also recommend you use the HDMI cable supplied. If using an alternative cable, ensure it complies with UHD 4K Standards.


Micro SD card

If your internal storage becomes full, you can use this slot to insert a Micro SD card (not supplied with your TV Hub) to add additional storage. This is really useful if you intend to download a large number of Apps from the Google Play Store.


You can use the USB slot to play compatible media (for example photos and home videos) on your TV Hub.    


You can connect a soundbar to your TV or your TalkTalk TV Hub in several different ways. This will depend on the different capabilities of each device.

If you experience problems with audio and video sync when using a sound bar, here’s some helpful tips:

  • Some soundbars will have the ability to adjust the audio/video sync. If so, use this feature on your soundbar to help resolve the issue.

If this doesn’t work, then please reset the sync to default and try these different cabling setups:

  • Connect your TalkTalk TV Hub to your soundbar and then to the TV.
  • Connect your TalkTalk TV Hub to the TV and then to your sound bar (connect using HDMI ARC/eARC out of your TV into your soundbar if possible).
  • If your soundbar supports SPDIF / TosLink, try these if your TV has the right output type and you have the correct cables. 

If all of the above troubleshooting steps doesn't fix the issue, unfortunately you'll have to bypass your soundbar and use the built-in audio on your TV.


You can connect various Gamepads to your TV Hub to enhance your gaming experience. You can find out more information and how to complete a simple setup at Google Support.


Music Apps running in the background

When attempting to pause live TV after historically playing a music app (for example Spotify), music may start to play from the app again when the Play/Pause button is pressed on the remote. This results in sound from the TV programme sometimes playing at the same time as the music. If this happens, you should simply force stop the music app to stop it running in the background. 

  1. Press the Home button on your TV Hub remote
  2. Press the up arrow to select Settings (cog)
  3. Select Device Preferences
  4. Select Apps
  5. Press the up or down arrows to select the app you want to force close
  6. Press OK
  7. Select Force stop and OK to confirm
