Vodafone TV Ireland - Price, Packages & Extras

Image of the vodafone logo on a tv screen

Expanding our entertainment options has become a subject of importance over the years, particularly throughout the pandemic, when many of us only had the option of being glued to the TV, computer, or mobile. While taking out individual services can be done, it can lead to some confusing bills, with direct debits coming out left, right and centre.


Thankfully many large multimedia and telecoms companies such as Three, Eir, Virgin Media, Sky and Vodafone have diversified their offerings, providing a mix of TV packages, mobile plans, mobile broadband, standard broadband, and more.

In this article, we will take a look at one of the most well-known competitors amongst this grouping - Vodaphone TV.

Vodafone TV Packages

Keeping it nice and simple, Vodafone currently offers only two options for their TV services. Both of these necessitate taking out Vodafone broadband, as the TV package cannot be purchased as a single service unless you are already with, or are joining Vodafone for broadband (much like with Eir TV).

If you are wondering ‘How do I get Vodafone TV’, the process couldn't be simpler. Either navigate to the Vodafone TV bundles section of the website, and select your preferred joint TV and broadband bundle, or alternatively select a broadband-only package, and the option to add TV onto this should come up when heading towards the checkout.

Bear in mind however that you require a fibre broadband connection to be able to access this service. Package availability is also limited by connections are in your home and area. Vodafone has a built-in address checker facility on their available packages, which after using, will display what your home is capable of. Vodafone TV services are additionally only available to domestic users, and cannot be used in businesses (including hotels, pubs, B&B’s etc).

Let’s take a quick look at these plans now.

Vodafone Broadband and TV Plans
Package Name Download Speed Contract Length Price Per Month Out of Contract Price Per Month
500 Fibre Broadband and TV Up to 500 Mbps 12 Months €55 €80
Gigabit 1000 Fibre Broadband and TV Up to 1 Gbps 12 Months €65 €100

Vodafone broadband and TV bundles additionally come with unlimited downloadsand a host of great features available on the Vodafone TV box. These include:

  • Restart TV - At the click of a button, instantly restart any show. No more just catching the last five minutes!
  • Pause and rewind live TV
  • Access over 80 channels, 32 of which are HD
  • Integrated app access (subscriptions are not included in the package)

The set-top Virgin TV box also has the ability to record up to 500 hours of programs, and stores them via cloud storage as opposed to on the device itself.

Vodafone TV Channels and Extras

While the base TV bundle provides a great selection of channels covering the entertainment, movies, music, sports, kids, news and documentary genres, avid TV users might be interested in further expanding their available services by taking out a channel-pack add-on. All of the following channel packs are available to cancel at any time by contacting 1907, or by getting in touch with a live chat agent.

Vodafone TV Bundles
Channel Pack Plan Term Intitial Plan Price Out of Plan Price Additional Channels
Sky Sports 12 Months €10 Per Month €40 Per Month 8
Sky Cinema 6 Months €12 Per Month €24 Per Month 11
BT Sports & Premier Sports 6 Months €20 Per Month €60 Per Month 6
Racing TV 6 Months €15 Per Month €30 Per Month 1

Further discounts are available by taking out multiple extra channel plans. To view the full channel listings of the standard package, and the optional add ons, check the Vodafone TV channels guide.

A final add on option is the Vodafone TV Multiroom pack. While the basic TV plan allows you to utilize their service on only a single TV, with multiroom, you are able to purchase extra set-top boxes for installation in other rooms. By taking out this service, you can effectively take your TV shows with you, be it to the kitchen, dining room or bedroom.

That being said, coming in with an extra cost of €10 per additional room, per month, and an installation fee of €99 per box, this option may be a tad too pricey for the casual watcher. If, however, it still takes your fancy, orders can be placed by calling 1800 805 016, or by checking in with an agent via the Vodafone live chat.

Where to Find the Vodafone TV App?

As with most modern companies, Vodafone has branched out in the ways that its customers can manage and interact with their accounts. The Vodafone TV Anywhere app can be found on both Apple and Google Play stores.

These apps allow existing customers to access Vodafone TV channels for free, along with:

  • Viewing live video streams
  • Watch Catchup Videos
  • Check the TV Anywhere channel guide, viewing up to 7 days in advance and the past
  • Add up to two devices, be they mobiles or tables to allow for entertainment on the go
  • Available over 3G, 4G and wifi networks

Sounds good right? Well, that depends on who you ask. Though the app seems to cover almost everything you could want, reviewers on both the Apple and Google Play stores have not reviewed the Vodafone TV app kindly overall. A common theme is that access to live videos can be patchy and that the app can freeze or simply time out. There are some supportive reviews also, but ranking at a mere 2.3 out of 5 on Apple, perhaps an update is due.

Vodafone TV Ireland - Installations

So you have sold yourself on upgrading to a TV package, but how simple is the installation process, and will it cause cable spaghetti through your living room?

Unlike some of the other TV service providers, the Vodafone TV box installation is relatively painless. Let’s look at the positives first.

  • Installation is free
  • No unsightly satellite dish is required, your TV works with your broadband
  • Multiroom devices work wirelessly (except the mains supply of course), meaning minimal wires
  • Appointments can be changed without charge. Advanced notice of two days or more is preferred
  • Although it is preferable for the billpayer to be present, as long as an adult over the age of 18 is present throughout the installation, the billpayer doesn’t have to attend

Now for the cons. Thankfully, this list is very short.

  • Installations can take 2-3 hours. Though the process may be shorter than this, this is still quite a long time
  • Extra plug-sockets or extension cords may be needed depending on the layout of your home

Moving Your Vodafone TV Package to a New Home?

image of a person with a speech-bubble

Moving home is never simple, particularly when it comes to transferring your services. For existing Vodafone TV customers, there is no need to order a new batch of set-top boxes and equipment, and you can simply bring your old ones to your new home.

Taking your services with you will necessitate the creation or renewal of a new contractual period of 12 months, however, in these cases, you will not be charged early termination fees for the contract belonging to the old property.

It is important that you let Vodafone know about the change of address as soon as you can in order that they can begin the service transferral process, and check that the new property is capable of supporting the contacts in your Vodafone TV bundle.
