Virgin Media on demand Movies - 1p

OK firsty, this is my first post so be nice. Simply put vote for you fav movies via the virgin media website and rent them out for 1p!

"If you are wondering how your vote will count and what will happen once you have placed your vote, then here are a few important details that should help you.


When does it start? The voting starts at 9am on Mondays and finishes at midday on Friday afternoons and you can only vote once.



What happens next? We will then count up all the votes on the Friday afternoon and announce the winning film on the Penny Movies homepage.

Over the weekend we get the winning movie ready.

From Monday mornings the winning movie will be available for 1p right through until the following Sunday.



What films can we vote for?

There will be 5 categories of film to vote for across 5 weeks:

Week 1 Blockbusters * Week 2 Comedy * Week 3 Family * Week 4 Cult Classics * Week 5 Action / Adventure



So how do I watch the winning films?

It's easy: Press the On Demand or Home button on your remote
Select Movies on Demand (for some customers this might be called Teleport movies)
Then choose either Top Titles or Special Offers (it's in both!) and pick the 1p movie



How will I be charged? It is exactly the same as any normal on demand film, the charge will appear on your next bill. You will see the name of the winning film and a charge of 1p next to it."

Just out of interest - how do you know about this. We are VM customers and have not been told anything about this.
It is just with all the drama going on at the moment about VM - you would have thought they would have made it much more widely known to the people who are supposed to matter to them, ie their customers.
#3
I hope that "Ghostbusters" wins. I would love to see THAT movie! ;-) Perhaps all sky customers will go and vote for that, strange that you don't need to be registered to vote though!

Children Of Men is winning, followed by Dead Man's Chest

I just found this on a website similar to HUKDeals. Yeah i was suprised they didnt make a big deal out of this. They are trying to be nice to their customers.. I'll give them that. lol quite ironic.. just got off the phone with VM to air my views on VM not having the red button on sky sports..and how so far I have only got to watch one of the cricket matches that I subs for. And what a c**t that guy was :roll:

Disgruntled Virgin subscribers should phone their Retentions line and complain about losing Sky One etc and threaten to leave for Sky.

They'll probably offer you either a price cut or an improved package for the same price.

I got £10.50 pm slashed from my bill ("forever".) :-D

Phone number is 0800 073 0591.

Be patient it may take a while to get through.

Here's some example of deals some people got:

This movie offer jobbie is advertised on VM broadband homepage....at the top,quite big,you can't really miss it!

I suppose not all of their BB customers have that as their homepage,but if you do it is there for all to see;-)

I always get good customer service from them,every time i have spoken to someone they are very polite and friendly and helpful......having worked in retail/CS myself in the past i am all too aware of the often difficult job that it is,so my attitude is always courteous and I receive that same attitude in return........just a thought when dealing them.......sometimes folk get the service they deserve!!:whistling:

Thought people might like this.

This a copy of a complaint letter that was actually received by NTL according to our sources.


Dear Cretins,

I have been an NTL customer since 9th July 2001, when I signed up for your 3-in-one deal for cable TV, cable modem, and telephone.

During this three-month period I have encountered inadequacy of service which I had not previously considered possible, as well as ignorance and stupidity of monolithic proportions. Please allow me to provide specific details, so that you can either pursue your professional prerogative, and seek to rectify these difficulties - or more likely (I suspect) so that you can have some entertaining reading material as you while away the working day smoking B&H and drinking vendor-coffee on the bog in your office.

My initial installation was cancelled without warning or notice, resulting in my spending an entire Saturday sitting on my fat arse waiting for your technician to arrive. When he did not arrive at all, I spent a further 57 minutes listening to your infuriating hold music, and the even more annoying Scottish robot woman telling me to look at your helpful website.... how? I alleviated the boredom to some small degree by playing with my testi*les for a few minutes - an activity at which you are no-doubt both familiar and highly adept.

The rescheduled installation then took place some two weeks later, although the technician did forget to bring a number of vital tools - such as a drill-bit, and his cerebrum.

Two weeks later, my cable modem had still not arrived. After several further telephone calls (actually 15 telephone calls over 4 weeks) my modem arrived ... a total of six weeks after I had requested it, and begun to pay for it. I estimate that the downtime of your internet servers is roughly 35%... these are usually the hours between about 6pm and midnight, Monday to Friday, and most of the useful periods over the weekend.

I am still waiting for my telephone connection. I have made 9 telephone calls on my mobile to your no-help line this week, and have been unhelpfully transferred to a variety of disinterested individuals, who are it seems also highly skilled bollock jugglers.

I have been informed that a telephone line is available (and someone will call me back), that no telephone line is available (and someone will call me back), that I will be transferred to someone who knows whether or not a telephone line is available (and then been cut off), that I will be transferred to someone who knows whether or not a telephone line is available (and then been redirected to an answer machine informing me that your office is closed), that I will be transferred to someone who knows whether or not a telephone line is available (and then been redirected to the irritating Scottish robot woman.... and several other variations on this theme.

Doubtless you are no-longer reading this letter, as you have at least a thousand other dissatisfied customers to ignore, and also another one of those crucially important testicle-moments to attend to. Frankly I don't care, it's far more satisfying as a customer to voice my frustrations in print than to shout them at your unending hold music. Forgive me, therefore, if I continue.

I thought BT were sh*t, that they had attained the holy ****-pot of god-awful customer relations, that no-one, anywhere, ever, could be more disinterested, less helpful or more obstructive to delivering service to their customers. That's why I chose NTL, and because, well, there isn't anyone else is there?

How surprised I therefore was, when I discovered to my considerable dissatisfaction and disappointment what a useless shower of *******s you truly are. You are sputum-filled pieces of distended rectum - incompetents of the highest order. British Telecom - ******s though they are - shine like brilliant beacons of success, in the filthy puss-filled mire of your seemingly limitless inadequacy.

Suffice to say that I have now given up on my futile and foolhardy quest to receive any kind of service from you. I suggest that you do likewise, and cease any potential future attempts to extort payment from me for the services which you have so pointedly and catastrophically failed to deliver

- any such activity will be greeted initially with hilarity and disbelief - although these feelings will quickly be replaced by derision, and even perhaps a small measure of bemused rage.

I enclose two small deposits, selected with great care from my cats litter tray, as an expression of my utter and complete contempt for both you, and your pointless company. I sincerely hope that they have not become desiccated during transit - they were satisfyingly moist at the time of posting, and I would feel considerable disappointment if you did not experience both their rich aroma and delicate texture. Consider them the very embodiment of my feelings towards NTL, and it's worthless employees.

Have a nice day - may it be the last in you miserable short life, you irritatingly incompetent and infuriatingly unhelpful bunch of tw*ts,

Yours psychotically

I couldn't agree more,other than the "can't really miss it" part as I have repeatedly,but that is possibly down to my failing eyesight! I have never had a problem with VM's CS,they have always been helpfull & I am sure there job is not stress free atm. Thanks Zak_K for the post.:thumbsup:

They have had trailers about this when you go into teleport tv (on my box anyway) so it hasn't just been advertised online.
