I fully expect this to go cold but it could be useful for someone thinking of taking out a Virgin TV package.

Virgin are currently doing what they are calling Big Kahuna Limited edition which is the Big Kahuna plus Sky movies which for the first 12 months is only £4 more than the normal big kahuna package so in effect you are getting Movies for £4 per month.

Line rental is 17.99

Total cost over 12 months is 767.88 (£63.99 per month)

There is also £220 cashback on quidco currently for virgin media

taking this into consideration it could only be as low as £547.88 (£45.65 per month)

I think that £45 monthly is a reasonable amount for what you get in this package.

is the line rental contract 18 months?
can't beat quality of product with Virgin but plz take care when upgrading or signing up.....if via telephone take note of who you spoke to and what dept n where they are... exactly what your deal is.....we've just had an 8 mnth wrangle with them as they changed what was sold to us! however we've came out winners .... eventually!!
I got this package in january but with the sports package instead of the movies. 200Mb broadband is the dogs nuts, I paid my line rental in one hit for a big discount. Just make sure the 12month line rental and your 12month tv/phone/broadband contract run out at the same time then renegotiate, very easy and a big money saver.

Picture quality with Virgin is great but it does not make up for the god awful Tivo box !

How long? 12 months? I'm on an old staff discount package and am tempted to change to this?
Just £63 a month?oO
Open the box 8 ... there's a gift
What's the point of 200mbs when it's traffic managed an has awful upload speeds an on top of that awful tivo and awful picture quality compared to sky or BT. This is a terrible deal from a company with no clue

So thats £36.00 saving over my 12 month contract, Nice I forgot to mention I also have the multi room for second box in this price too. I can't say whether the sky box is better as not used one of the new ones but i agreed the virgin tivo has been around a while.

no it isnt, I download a LOT and havent been throttled for years. Maybe under 30mb it is, but not above.

"We've got great news for all customers on our broadband tiers of 30Mb and above. After listening to your feedback, we've decided to stop applying our traffic management policy to download speeds. So now you can download as much as you like without worrying about traffic management slowing you down."

traffic shaped as clearly stated on the website,virgin is the worst of all fibre providers an has been bottom of providers foe years,if your happy with there awful services and cheap plastic products get on with it.
Got this in Jan this year plus movies & sport plus £100 Amazon voucher plus 200mb broadband plus anytime calls! £62
is it correct that the price is listed for 12 months, but contract is 18 months and price goes up in month 3.

Am I missing something? This is line rental + 200mb broadband plus top package to including sky movies for a potential £45 per month.... Most people are happy pay £25 for fibre and telephone so we are saying £20 for full package tv with Sky movies and 6 months Netflix subscription.... I think it is reasonable.... Would I pay full price for it? No I wouldn't but at £45 I'm taking a punt.

Having come from virgin fibre a few years ago since then I have been with bt, talktalk and sky all of which were inferior to virgin by quite some margin.
Thanks OP I have gone for this. I will merge Plusnet Fiber and muiltiroom Sky. There will be a monthly saving but the big plus is new equipment and the £220 tracked very quickly. Sky have ignored me for years wanting hundreds to replace the original HD kit and my deal with Plusnet has ended. So its hot from me, I can not be the only one!
The only reason I can see for people voting cold is that they cannot get Virgin in their area and resent those that can. Hot Hot Hot.
This is a good deal. It isn't for me, but I recognise it as a strong deal.

Have some heat
as an ex sky subscriber this is the best deal by far!! the box isn't as quick as Sky but the super fast BB and the fact the Tivo box has way more features easily beats Sky overall.
welcome to the virgin.

one of the worst customer services

They keep putting the price up without notifying you

Just found this deal on facebook/computercare24 for Limited Edition Big Kahuna Movies Bundle Summary (12 month contract)
Get £231 off this package for a effective monthly price of £20.88 including line rental.
