These are radically different, testing times that we're living in. We all have to change the way we live for the foreseeable future - learning to self-isolate at home, keeping socially distant and striving to keep ourselves entertained while stuck at home.

If you're with EE, we have a number of different entertainment packages to help distract you and the family from the news.

From BritBox and Apple News+, to Amazon Prime Video and Apple Music, we've got you covered.


BritBox lets you stream the very best of British entertainment on your phone, and with the right equipment, on your TV too. You can get it on us for six months and we’ll even cover the cost of the data you use to watch it.

Make the most of this extra time at home and binge watch tv boxsets to your heart's content. Need a laugh? Watch some classic sitcoms such as The Office, Gavin & Stacey and Father Ted. Looking to get through that backlog of British fiilms on your watch list? Try An Adventure In Space and Time, Bill or Jane Eyre.
