Free Sky Sports for 6 Weeks with Virgin Media (Select customers only)

19
Found 16th Jan
I received an email from Virgin Media today stating Sky Sports have been added to my package free for the next 6 weeks. Not added to freebies as TV package required but check your emails or SD Sports channels to see if you also qualify.

Get in there – we’ve specially handpicked you to enjoy Sky Sports at no extra cost, from today and for the next 6 weeks.

We’ve already added the Sky Sports channels to your line-up, so the only finger you’ll need to lift is the one that finds ‘sport’ on your Virgin TV box. You won’t be charged a penny to watch these extra channels, and if you don’t want the channels at the end of the 6 weeks, they’ll automatically come off your package.

So you can make the most of the first fixtures of the New Year, we’ll email soon with more details about your Sky Sports freebie. How’s that for a strong start to 2017.

Happy New Year!

Kind regards,
The Virgin Media team.

Yeah...cold for SD X)

I got this, channels aren't working yet though. Noticed on Twitter they've told someone it can take up to 24hrs. The email should have said that really.

Make sure you're not looking for HD channels, SD only

Got my email this afternoon. Not of any interest to me but i am sure hubby will try it out seen as it is free.

Great for the selected accounts. Shame you could do nothing to help your long term loyal customers even when you quote the deals that some people have got on this site.

Then giving people Sky Sports free - how to not annoy and lose loyal customers 101

Bell ends

I'd much prefer to get a free v6 box rather than sd sky sports.

I'm afraid with Virgin loyalty only works one way. I've been with them, and their previous incarnations, since the early eighties and the only good offers are for new customers. Where I live I can only get 20MB from the alternatives so I'm stuck.

On the Tivo remote...
Press Home
Select Help & Settings
Select Help
Select TV Care from the top bar
Select Missing channels
Select Refresh my channel list to check for missing channels, and to get your TiVo box automatically updated if they are missing.

I did it and the SkySportsSD channels showed up instantly.

Hi, is that because you got a call from them saying you are eligible? or you just tried and it worked?

Thanks
