Article 2 of 6
We ask thousands of TV and broadband customers about their experiences so we can tell you exactly how EE's service compares with that offered by other providers.
You're likely to think of EE as a mobile phone provider but it is also a digital TV provider that's based on the Freeview platform. It comes bundled with EE broadband.
EE's prices are appealing - especially when you factor in the generous introductory offers - but are customers happy with the service they receive?

Our latest survey
Our results are based on our regular broadband and pay-TV survey. Twice a year, we talk to customers to find out what they think of the service they receive. This means we're best placed to help you to choose the right service for you.
In January 2019, we surveyed 3,805 members of the public and asked them about their experiences with their broadband and pay TV provider. We report on all providers that have at least 30 respondents.
What TV and broadband deals does EE offer?
You’re likely to think of EE as a mobile phone provider, but it also offers several broadband packages. To this you can add a TV service, which is based on Freeview.
EE's pay-TV service is only available to EE broadband customers and requires you to take out a full bundle – you can't have a standalone pay-TV deal. Unlike with some other providers, you can access EE’s TV service with standard broadband, so fibre isn’t a must.
The TV element of the deal is based on the Freeview service and comes with more than 70 free channels (including 11 in HD). You can also watch catch-up shows on services such as BBC iPlayer and pay for on-demand programmes, including the latest movies and exclusive sporting events, through Sky's Now TV and Rakuten TV. For an extra monthly charge you can include pay TV, such as Sky Sports, Sky Movies and Hayu using a Now TV pass.

Supplied EE equipment
As part of the package, you'll receive the new EE TV box. This has four Freeview tuners and a 1TB memory, which allows you to watch up to four different programmes on your TV and compatible phones and tablets. You can also record up to 600 hours of standard-definition TV.
