Customers can choose from any of Vodafone's broadband and TV plans, plus Sky Sports or Sky Cinema, for as little as €26 per month for the first six months.

The New Year is well and truly the best time to switch, what with all the great deals on offer, and this year is no different with a plethora of bargains already available for sign up.

And the competition has been hotting up with Vodafone now deciding to enter the milieu with a very enticing offer indeed.

Keeping you on tenterhooks for another millisecond, read on to discover the finer details...

What's on offer?

Vodafone is offering new TV and broadband customers a choice of Sky Sports or Sky Cinema for only €1 a month for six months. Come again? You heard correctly, Sky Sports or Sky Cinema for only €1.

The offer will be available for sign up until 29th February, provided you sign up to a Vodafone broadband and TV package.

After the initial six months are up, customers will automatically be moved to the standard price of €40 per month for Sky Sports or €24 per month for Sky Cinema. But the add-ons may be cancelled at any time by simply calling Vodafone on 1907.

Who's eligible?

The offer is open to new customers who purchase a Vodafone TV and broadband plan as well as any of its available tripleplay bundles.

Unfortunately, the offer does not apply to existing Vodafone Home Broadband customers who are either switching or upgrading plans, while new customers can only avail of the offer once.

Sky Sports or Sky Cinema

The choice is simple really. Are you a sports fanatic sitting on the edge of your seat for every game, or rather a cinephile, deconstructing every movie for matters of theme and style? Thankfully there is something for everyone. Here are the nuts and bolts.

A subscription to Sky Sports will get footie and Formula 1 fans alike excited and revving their engines. With the Sky Sports pack, subscribers will have access to a host of dedicated sports channels and be able to watch everything from the best cricket and Premier League football action, to top-flight boxing and golf. And although the sports market has got more fragmented in recent years with Sky, BT Sport, Eir Sport and Amazon Prime all vying for your spend, it's fair to say that Sky stil remains THE premium sports channel.  

Subscribers to Sky Cinema will have access to Sky's full range of films, with everything from the latest action, comedy and Sci-Fi films to Disney classics catered for. Customers subscribing to Vodafone's TV Plus package, however, will also have exclusive access to Sky Movies Classics. So anyone hoping to watch classic Hitchcock or some Spaghetti Westerns will need to upgrade. That's not taking away, however, from the sheer quality and bank of movies available on Sky Cinema - something for all the family as the saying goes.
