TalkTalk steps in to save Christmas


Over the last few days there has been a national outcry at the news that Elf, the iconic and much loved Christmas film, won't be on TV over the festive season. Despite looking at the TV listings, and checking them twice, Brits have had to accept that the festive favourite, starring Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel simply isn't available on TV this year.

Unlike previous Christmases, broadcasters including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky Cinema won't be showing Elf. The movie also isn't currently available on Netflix.

The news hasn't gone down well with fans of the Christmas classic on Twitter.


Given the obvious love for the film, and the fact that for many of us watching Elf marks the pinnacle of the festive season, TalkTalk is stepping in to help save Christmas. Having listened to the public's cries, TalkTalk has confirmed that Elf is available on TalkTalk TV.

What's more, in an effort to spread some Christmas cheer, and not just by singing loud for all to hear, viewers can get £2.50 off any festive film, by using the code: TALKTALKSANTA. The discount code is valid from today until New Year's Day and available to the first 1,000 viewers to download to own or rent a festive film.
