Smart TV - That's Got a Simple TV Guide


Registered User

My Dad has used talktalk TV for years and got along with it well as it's got a full easy TV guide.

They are phasing out selling Sky Sports and moving people over to Now TV, which I've done for him.

The problem is that none of the Sky channels are available through the TV guide any more. They are there but can't be accessed - you have to go through the Now TV app.

It's really complicated and dead slow to get to.

Is there a TV box or smart TV that I could buy for him that easily displays ALL the channels within a guide including subscriptions like Sky sport and BT sports?

Maybe even if there is a simple remote control I could programme that just rolls through his favourite channels.

Thanks for your time and help.

I wondered if this site would be of any help in trying to find something suitable -
