i have a v+ box and also th old box is it passable to get a good deal to get a 2nd v+ box?? or can i pick a v+ box up from somewhere ese and put my card in it would it work like that??
any info would be helpful thanks
#2
Am thinking of going for this - they offered me this deal the other day. Only downside seems to be it's only an 80gb box. Anybody know if you can upgrade the harddrive?

Also, would like to know if you can buy two of these and put one on an extra line into the house without paying 'rental' on the second box. They charge £10 per month rental on the second 'normal' virgin box at present - or are you paying for the second line into your house?

I told my mom about this offer a couple of days ago, she phoned up 4 times and every operater that answered said the same, only for existing customers who upgrade to xl not those currently on it, everyone of them said £150 for customers currently on xl.Finally one said they would drop to £100 and that was as low as they could go, might give it another go maybe they have changed the terms
#4
I was offered it for £49 when I told them I might leave Virgin to join Sky. I'm already on XL tv. You might need to speak to their retentions department.
#5
Im interested in this myself, but it does say in the T+C's only if you are upgrading your services.

You'd have to ask them for the first option, getting a 2nd box from somewhere else won't work as Virgin own all the boxes and don't take kindly to people selling on their boxes ;-)

hi guys i have the v+ box and the wife and kids love it
got mine just after xmas
was already a xl customer
oringial cost £150
offer at time £75

i quoted the sky offer at the time for there box and complained about the on demand services as it was always crashing
dont know if it still does as we use the v+ now
and they also offered to let me keep the old box for £5 p/m on xl tv
put in the boys bedroom did not cost any extra to put it there

1st question - I wouldn't go there, with sky you can as you have to buy the box but VM own that V+ box. You mess it up they'll charge you for it.

2nd question - You might be able to buy one, you'd need to find out what model VM use and see if it's possible on one of the cable forums to do what you want.
#9
I did it by threatening to leave so maybe that is the way to get it if your not upgrading your package.
#10
I've just tried and was quoted an unmovable £150 because I already have XL tv, I'm not paying that much, I'll wait for an offer. :-(

No, you can't split the line. Even if you would split your cable, you could no just connect a second box to it. Each Virgin box (and modem) need to be registered separately. To get a second viewing box from a third party (e.g. eBay) without paying Virgin extra would be illegal.
#12
You just have to persevere with the retentions department and you will get it for £49, just be polite. I told my FIL about this offer a few weeks ago and he had it installed at the beginning of the month for £49 and is a long time customer already on the XL package.
#13
If you have a V+ box your second "normal" box should only be 5 per month - but they ask 30 to install - the threat that you are leaving doesn't seem to work as well now virgin has sky news etc back!!

Yes you can split the line. Just change the splitter in the box on the wall outside. Then cable to which ever room you need. I would use use FT100 cable.

Well yes. Or if you want to move the box/modem to a different room.

Beware: They have a habit of deceiving people on the phone. I was about to cancel as I had spotted a cheaper ADSL package and would have got a free wireless router, so they offered me a free router to keep me, 6 months later, I have discovered that they tied me into a 12 month contract because I took this "free" router off them. They never told me that I would be tied into a 12 month contract if I took their so called "free" router. Now I have to pay an extra 40 pounds to get out of the "contract" (i've been a customer for 3 years). Be careful with these guys, especially if you go down the cancellation route and they offer you a deal.

I got a v+ box 3 months back off Virgin for £30 .

Brilliant service, much better than sky+ service. Regularly have most of the newest films on demand with no wait times unlike sky when you have to wait for a showing. Its got iplayer built in as well as channel 4OD, as well as a catchup selection of a few other channels. On the XL package you also get the best of old series that have been on the tv for free, for example i was watchin the 1st series of peep show the other day. Good deal, we got this deal a few yrs ago. Only prob is the interface can be a bit sluggish which gets a bit annoying sometimes, but its worth putting up with it! Good deal

if you are already on XL package, then just ask to be moved back to M or L. Then ring up a week later and take this deal.

Hurray, common sense at last from VM. I phoned up last night to cancel my TV subscription with them and hey presto all of a sudden they can offer me V+ at £49, which was all I wanted in the first place. :roll:

After being with VM for 8 years now, it's a pity I had to go through the motions of leaving before getting the same deal that any new customer gets as standard. :thinking:

Yep, me too - just given me the £49 deal for a second V+ with no extra monthly costs...
#24
Sorry ,I'm not quite up to speed with the technicalities of the V+ in respect of connecting up a 2nd V+ box. Hoping you could spell it out for me. :thinking:

I have an existing V+ box with a coax coming from the wall box/splitter. The other half of the splitter goes through some coax to my router for my broadband.

If I am lucky enough to get a 2nd V+ box from VM for £49,how do I go about connecting it up? (I assume the 2nd box will come with a card & will allow me to watch my existing XL package with no extra charges,if I understood correctly?)
Cheers.
