TalkTalk has signed up a library of NBCUniversal box sets for a new on demand package in its YouView-based TV service.
US TV series including Suits, Grimm and all seven seasons of 30 Rock will be available in the TVBox Boost through TalkTalk TV.
The Boost is a bespoke TV package tailored for TalkTalk’s 1.1 million TV customers, alongside NBC Universal’s Picture Box on demand movie library.
Olivia Streatfeild, TalkTalk’s commercial director, said: “This is a really exciting step forward for our TV service. We want to give our customers access to even more great TV at a great price, and this partnership with NBCUniversal does just that.
“As our service grows, so do our ambitions; we're innovating with on demand content and this is another example of how TV from TalkTalk just keeps getting better.”
TV Box is free to all TalkTalk TV customers for the first month, after which it will be priced £5/month on the same pay-as-you-go basis as other TalkTalk TV Boosts.
Jay McNamara, executive VP of strategy development and analysis at NBCUniversal International Television, said, “We are thrilled to expand upon our dynamic partnership with TalkTalk and introduce this latest development in our branded on-demand business to their customers.
“Through this service, subscribers will now have access to the best NBCUniversal TV series in an exciting box set format.”
