PictureBox films on Virgin Media freeview for August

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

Just looked at the films - most have been on TV hundreds of times - voted cold

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.

Cheers, i will have a look at that. Watched frost/nixon today as i was never too sure about it, was a good film.

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.

Cape Fear in HD = HOT!

am on M so erm ah well thanks for the post and yup its not free view as if i got rid of my bb and phone i would have to loose my m tv but tbh i dont watch it so to have any more would be a waste of money

btw thanks for the post
