Advantages of internet and TV

They deliver these subscriptions via VDSL, cable or fiber. You will find the largest selection on VDSL via the telephone line and on fiber optics. Almost all providers deliver this, except for cable providers such as Ziggo or DELTA.

How does TV and internet work?

An internet and TV subscription is provided over the telephone line (VDSL), the TV cable or fiber optic. In the case of VDSL and fiber optics, the TV signal is sent over the internet connection and an interactive TV receiver picks up the signal to be able to display it on your TV. For each connected television a separate receiver is required and a network cable from the modem to the relevant receiver. With every internet and TV package this is of course included, with a number of packages even two TV receivers are included as standard. With cable TV it works slightly differently, with this the digital TV signal is offered over the COAX cable, and you can also easily connect this indoors to, for example, a television in the bedroom. In that case you can simply watch the basic channels on that TV without a separate TV receiver.

Interactive TV receivers

An interactive TV receiver with remote control, power adapter, and HDMI and network cable is supplied with every TV and Internet subscription. The differences, however, lie in the possibilities that the goedkoop tv en internet subscription offers. With cable provider Ziggo it is also possible to opt for a CI + plug-in card instead of a separate TV receiver. You insert this card into a suitable TV, after which you can simply use the remote control of your TV, but still receive the full range of channels or, for example, make use of missed programs.


In addition to watching TV via the TV receiver and your television, all providers also have a TV app. With this you can also watch interactive television via your smartphone or tablet. Depending on the provider you have chosen, you can also view recordings in the app, schedule recordings remotely and view video on demand. You can also always consult the TV guide and of course watch live TV. However, the range of channels in the app may be limited. With a number of providers these options are only available within the home within the range of your WiFi network, with others also outside mobile internet. Obviously pay attention to your data bundle.
