How do I get EE TV?

From 27 June 2019, EE TV will no longer be available for new customers to purchase and EE Broadband customers won't be able to upgrade to a plan that includes EE TV.

If you're an existing EE TV customer nothing will change and you can continue to enjoy exactly the same service until it ends in March 2021. We'll be in contact with you well in advance of this date to advise you on what happens next and on your options.

Additionally, if you're an existing EE TV customer you can still upgrade and change your plan as normal. You also have the choice to keep EE TV if your broadband contract comes to an end or if fibre broadband becomes available in your area.

If you decide to leave EE TV, you won't be able to sign up to it again at a later date.

Do I need a TV aerial for EE TV?

Yes, we recommend you use a rooftop TV aerial in order to get your digital TV, radio channels and programme guide with EE TV. Alternatively, you could use an indoor aerial but the signal may not be strong enough to get all EE TV functions.

No rooftop aerial?
