In my house atm, I currently have 1 V+ box, and 2 normal Virgin boxes.
We are currently looking into replacing one of those "normal" ones to another V+ one, so I phoned them up earlier, to be told that it would cost £150.
Now, I thought that was too high immediately and got off the phone, I then checked their website to see that it should cost us £99 as a one off fee (yes I know im not buying the box before someone says), the terms then say I can keep the other box for just £5 a month, aswell as my £99 V+ box (which could work as id have it fitted in another bedroom.
The new customers can get the V+ box however for £49, so would it be possible do you think, for me to get it at this price, by either
1. Threatening to cancel the Virgin (too risky for me with the 3 boxes, phone and broadband)
2. Commenting that Sky are only charging £49 for a HD+ box
What do you guys think?
