Compare our TalkTalk TV Boxes

We have 4 different TalkTalk TV boxes ranging from our very latest TalkTalk TV Hub to our TalkTalk TV Box. You can see and compare the different features and specifications with all our TV boxes below.

Following the launch of ITVX  last year, on the 30th November 2023 ITV closed the legacy ITV Hub and ended support of this service. This change by ITV only affects customers using our legacy TalkTalk TV Box and TalkTalk TV Plus Box (DN372T). Please see below for more information.

From the 1st May 2024, the BritBox app is no longer available. After this date, the only way to watch BritBox will be with an ITVX Premium subscription. Please see the Youview website for more information.

On the 30th November 2023 ITV closed the legacy ITV Hub and ended support of the service. This change by ITV only affects customers using our legacy TalkTalk TV Box and TalkTalk TV Plus Box (DN372T)

Customers who use our TalkTalk TV 4K box, or the TalkTalk TV Hub, are not affected by this. These latest TV Boxes are fully compatible with the new ITVX service.

Please contact us to discuss upgrading your TalkTalk service and TV Box.

We’d hate for you to miss out on your favourite ITV shows, so you can also use another device that’s available to you. ITVX is available to browse and watch on multiple other platforms such as mobile, tablet, desktop, and connected TV. To access on mobile or tablet, please download the ITVX app available on the Apple Store and Google Play. To access on a desktop, visit www.itv.com.

 

Players and Apps

We understand that sometimes you miss your favourite shows or want to binge watch the latest series everyone is talking about. That's why you have access to Players and Apps such as BBC iPlayer, NOW and Netflix directly on your TV 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.

TalkTalk 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.

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 Google Play apps installation article.

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.

You’re free to add or remove services whenever you like, we won't tie you into a big expensive TV bundle. Subscriptions may be required with those app providers directly, but we’ll allow you to build a package that’s right for you. With TalkTalk TV, you’re in control.

If you've forgotten your PIN that was set during the initial setup of your box, you'll need to either request a new Master PIN or reset  your device.

Master PIN request

Please contact us to request a new Master PIN. Once you've received this you'll need to update it on your TV box within 24 hours by following these simple steps:

  1. Press the Home button on your remote
  2. Select Settings
  3. Select Parental Settings
  4. Enter your new Master PIN and select Modify PIN
  5. Set a new 4 digit PIN for your TV Box

Reset your device

If you complete a reset you'll lose all your custom settings, reminders and credentials of 'On Demand' apps during a factory reset. You'll also lose any recorded programmes along with any scheduled recordings. We only recommend a factory reset as a last resort.

To reset your device,

  1. Press the  Home button on your remote
  2. Select Settings
  3. Select Advanced
  4. Enter your PIN
  5. Select Reset settings

Alternatively, to reset your box you can also press the small square reset button on the side of the TV box five (5) times. 

After you’ve reset your box you’ll need to complete the setup wizard by following the onscreen steps and enter a new 4 digit PIN for your TV box.

 

You can connect various Bluetooth accessories to your TalkTalk TV 4K box, including headsets and speakers. In this video we show you how easy it is to set up and use.

The TalkTalk TV 4K App is your perfect companion for your TalkTalk TV 4K Box. You simply need to download the App for compatible Apple and Android devices.

The TalkTalk TV Box is included in the monthly access fee for TalkTalk TV. We don't currently sell any of our TalkTalk TV boxes separately. However, if you need to order a replacement box or discuss upgrade options, please contact us.

* You can pause live TV and then restart viewing or fast forward / rewind back to the point you paused the programme. However, you cannot immediately rewind live TV to an earlier time. Please insert a USB (minimum 32GB) and record a programme if you want the flexibility to watch and rewind to any point in the programme.
