Our Kids TV remote has been specially designed to make it easy for children to find the TV shows they love. It was available to our existing customers with the Kids Boost. See below for more information about the remote.


Due to a change in content delivery, from the 29th April 2021, TalkTalk TV Kids is no longer available. Please use your parent (main) remote to navigate More TV.
