PictureBox films on Virgin Media freeview for August

Jeepers CreepersJeepers Creepers

Got a pop up on my virgin box yesterday.
Around 60 films, with new ones every week.
Free for Virgin Media customers on M+ or higher TV package.

Films are mostly old, but better than I was expecting for free. Only one of the films says HD, but the quality seems reasonable (better than Love Film streaming when I tried that).

On Demand > Movies > Picturebox Summer Freeview

    Cheers, i got an e-mail about this from them last night. Watched 'The Darwin Project' which actually turned out to be a pretty good film with loads of stars in it, including the two guys from Mythbusters, lol.

    They're not great films, but they're on-demand for a month, and great for a rainy day -- which we aren't in short supply of.

    Cold is a bit of an over-reaction.

    As I understand it, it's not available to long-term customers who are still on the [closed-to-new-customers] base 'M' package, even though it is available on the new base 'M+' package (which is otherwise the same as M, but more expensive). Voting cold because it's a pretty disgusting catch to try and prod long-term customers into a payment plan VM promised they wouldn't ever be forced to adopt. How long before everyone gets 'helpfully' upgraded to M+ pray tell?

    Not true.
    They are different packages.
    M is the old equivalent of free view. M+ is not and contains more channels.
    If you have M then you have free view and you're not paying a penny for your TV.
    How rude of virgin to not give you free movies with your free TV.

    "If you have M then you have free view and you're not paying a penny for your TV."

    Virgin Media M comes as part of a package, along with a telephone line - which is more expensive than many of its competitors - and a broadband service which is substantially more expensive than many of its competitors and often unreliable. VM may be robbing Peter to pay Paul but I reckon, at the end of the day, that M subscribers pay their way and, thanks to Virgin Media's unreliable service and limited options, get a second or third rate cable TV service.
