Just received this latest leaflet from Virgin Media, and for once it actually seems a good deal compared to Sky.
Free V+HD Box (normally £49)
TV XL (160 channels - NO Sports/Movies included)
Free Wireless G router
Phone Line Rental
Free Anytime calls (01, 02, 03 up to 60mins)
(plus can add an extra Virgin multiroom box for just £5 without any installation charge)
Original Price quoted on the phone was 53.95 (1st 6mths) - however mention this is more than you pay for Sky and they will reduce this to £46 per month for the full 12 month term! or £51 per month for all this plus multiroom (still with free installation and basic Virgin box! when all installed together at the same time)
We were paying over £41 per month for Sky+, 3mixes, mid-broadband (now capped at 10Gb p/m), phone line rental + unlimited call plan... so to go HD and multiroom for £10 more per month seems a good deal!
