Customers who sign up to the TalkTalk Plus broadband and phone plan will now receive a free YouView set-top-box as part of their on-going subscriptions.

The box, which enables users to catch-up with shows from BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 as well as access all Freeview+ HD channels, will also come with 12 months' free subscription to movie-streaming service LoveFilm Instant, the TalkTalk Player, and unlimited calls and data downloads.

Additionally, TalkTalk has signed an agreement with BSkyB that will grant customers full access to all of its Sky Sports’ channels (including the Formula 1 channel), Sky Movies and Sky’s standard channels such as Sky 1 and Sky News through the TalkTalk Player. 

Now for the caveat: in order to be privy to this offer, new TalkTalk Plus customers will must sign up to an 18-month contract, including those who upgrade, while existing customers must agree to a further 24 months. 

The YouView box is available now to non-TalkTalk customers at a cost of £299 without subscription.
