We are currently still on the old analogue Virgin Media box, have never got round to changing it because really only use the package for phone, broadband and have freeview box for other stuff.
Been with Virgin (well, NTL) for about 10 years now and never really been given anything extra special from them - never phoned up to get things cheaper or whatever just because the deal always seemed alright.
Right now paying £36 /month for 10mb broadband, basic tv package and phoneline. Phoned up to finally get digital upgrade and they said it would be £28/month for M package with phoneline and 10mb broadband, but that it would cost £35 for the box. Also installation is free.
It is only the standard box we are receiving, but I'd like to get the V+ box instead, can only see the V+ box for £75 though. Can anyone suggest anything to try for haggling purposes? I know there's quidco for about £65 for new customers but I'm sure if I give them the threat of leaving then signing up with quidco they'll tell me I'm not allowed to do that. What does everyone else pay? Is there better deals?
Thanks a lot :-)
