Not expecting this to go hot through the roof but hopefully it helps somebody.

I am a "Big Bundle" customer out of contract with VM. I was looking forward to being able to pick and choose my Sky Sports channels with the rebrand that was announced yesterday, but of course Virgin have said they aren't able to offer the channels as standalone, only offering ALL channels for a list price of £31.75 a month for SD. HD is an additional £7pm.

With a little bit of politeness and flattery on the livechat, without mentioning leaving, I was offered a price of £22pm for the sports collection in SD, a saving of £9.75pm (I asked about a deal on HD too but didn't get anywhere!)

Although it is only SD, it compares quite favourably to the standard pricing for Sky's own customers. There you can get a single sports channel for £18, two for £22 or three for £26. Whereas with this deal you get all 10 channels for £22. Then you can use the £9.75 saving to "pay" for the £7 HD fee.

This offer is for a 12 month term, if you're not sure or hoping for a better deal closer to the football season starting you can always ask them to save the deal on your account to come back to later.

Hopefully this helps someone else in my position!

I have sky sports through sky, and they have emailed recently saying they have 2 new channels, sky sports premier league and sky sports football. Obviously all the footy will be moved to those channels, so make sure theyre included!

I know an even better deal that will save you more than £264 in the long run. Do sports instead of watching them!

Hello everyone
I had Virgin media fiber optic Internet fixed by some 3rd party contracter on behalf of Virgin media. And I had a good chat with him about TV channels and charges at Virgin media. He personally told me that not to buy box from Virgin media. Instead buy box called ZGEMMA which can record, play and pause live TV. ZGEMMA also contains 970 channels roughly HD CHANNELS ARE NOT INCLUDED, APART FROM FREEVIEW HD CHANNELS. He told me to buy box from ebay or amazon, can be just plug and play.
Anyone here got same box I'm discussing about? Please share your experience.
Thanks

Firstly ZGEMMA seems to be satellite, not cable. Secondly when used in the way that is being suggested it is piracy. (A quick Google suggests that it works by sharing a Sky viewing card with another box over the internet)

I really do agree with the point that HD versions of channels shouldn't be a premium plus option.
