The new 4K TV Box gives TalkTalk TV subscribers more options than 4K Ultra-High-Definition viewing for the best in-home entertainment.

This box makes it quicker and easier to watch content through one box.

All you need for setup is a box, a remote, and a Wi-Fi connection to access all of your entertainment in one location. For just £4 more per month combined with TalkTalk's Fibre 65 package, the 4K TV Box will revolutionise the in-home multiscreen entertainment experience, saving TalkTalk TV customers up to £216 over eighteen months in comparison to BT, Sky, and Virgin Media.
