If you don’t have a smart TV but want to watch streaming services such as Netflix, iPlayer or Amazon Prime Video you’re going to need a set top box or streaming stick.
The BBC’s iPlayer enjoyed its busiest year ever in 2017, with TV fans streaming more than 3.3 billion programmes, including 4.8 million requests for the first episode of the acclaimed natural history series Blue Planet II.
TalkTalk has confirmed it’s in talks with infrastructure investment fund Infracapital to connect 3 million homes and businesses “in mid-sized towns and cities in the UK” to ultrafast, full fibre broadband.
