My recent bill was higher than usual, and noticed that a TV package was added by yourselves, without my consent, could you let me know why that happened please? I've never had Talktalk TV and do not even have a set top box.
Also, I called to sort it out and got it removed, but the charge was still taken from my bank account. You can't just add packages/upgrade and take money without a customers permission.
TV is included with all our packages as standard, even to those customers that do now want to use a TV box. This is to allow them to have access to the TV store to purchase or rent movies online.
A recent change has introduced a TV charge for the TalkTalk TV services and customers have been advised via email and letter over the past month.

Report it to Ofcom:
your package does have a TV component but it is only showing as TV Store only - meaning you have access to rent and purchase movies via the online TV store. As such, no TV charge has been applied to your account as you have no additional TV services.
I didn't realise I wasn't supposed to reply with a post, because the reply button was active. I find this forum unbelievably difficult to navigate because you are continually being diverted to irrelevant Help files. I needed to resort to using the search facilty to find an answer to my question and suddenly found myself at this thread, where I couldn't find the button to open a new topic (I can't see one at the moment). In any case, in most forums I visit you can actually be admonished for starting a new thread on a subject which already exists.
