Virgin Media 200MB Broadband + XL TV Sky Sports + Movies + Asian Channels + Line Rental £38 per month

Found 16th Jul 2016
I currently get Internet with Virgin and TV with Sky.

I received a call from Virgin yesterday offering the "Big Kahuna Bundle Sports + Cinema" offer. All in HD.

This offer is subject to a 12 months contract and is just £38 per month.

This includes:

- Sky Sports
- BT Sport
- Movie channels
- All Asian channels
- 200MB fiber optic Internet
- All kids channels
- National Geopgraphic / History channels etc
- Line rental is INCLUDED in the price

I double and triple checked all details with the rep on the phone as it sounded too good to be true. Then I called them again today to verify the deal and was told it is indeed £38 per month.

your an existing virgin customer can a new customer get this deal? also is it cheaper not to have the asian channels?
Guess this is to prize you away from sky tv, im on the big kahuna and pay £60 a month. Thats even after the £6 loytal customer discount. I doubt anyone exisiting is entitled to this offer and even new customers.
I hope your right, when you consider line rental is generally £18 a month alone then, broad band, standard is £5 if your lucky, bt sport anything between free and £20 depending if your with bt, sky sport, least £20 , then you've got your other channels, then HD, I find this very hard to believe. Good luck to you
Great Price

virginmedia.com/sho…tml

appears they normally charge £49 a month
for 9 months then £79.50 a month in a 12 month contract
So great price if you can get it

I asked if this deal can be claimed by anyone and was told it can. I was an existing broadband customer but my TV was with Sky. I'm not sure if this deal is available for existing TV customers.

The person I spoke to today told me it's the first time he has come across this and that I'm the first customer that he has seen have it on their account.
I got a similar call but unfortunately had just signed up with Amstrad, on the plus side I have a spanking new video phone and a fax machine....result !
It'll probably stay at this price for 12 months then increase dramatically so make sure you're not agreeing to a longer contract or liable for penalties if you leave before the end. Also check the small print to ensure this price is fixed. I've read some of their t&cs and they often state that they can change the price at any time.

Apologies I forgot to mention that there is a £9.99 activation fee. There are definitely no further fees

Well technically speaking, I'm an existing customer too. I just didn't have the TV service with them, only broadband
Superhot deal if anyone else can get this!
This is an incredible deal. I was paying £150 a month for top everything and when I rang to renew was offered nothing close to this and duly cancelled. The TiVo box's are total snail pace crap. Cancelled and putting up a freebie aeriel. I have had missed calls from them so maybe I should try again but just cannot stand the TiVo box's.

Virgin Media are owned by Liberty Global now. They have begun outsourcing a lot of the internal IT staff to India. In time the reduced service will filter down to customers. If people losing their jobs in the name of profit/greed bothers you then I would look elsewhere. Source = I work(ed) for Virgin Media.

​I was a TV customer years ago and remember their boxes being crap in terms of speed and response. It's probably the only thing I'm not looking forward to with this deal!

Just ring them and see
Considering I pay about £26 a month for phone line and broadband I'd be pretty keen on this if open to everyone.
I just rang but offer wasn't there. it helps if the person answering your call knows what they're doing. might try again
Got Virgin line and broadband giz the number and I'll try my luck if anyone answers
Just rang....£39 extra a month for movies and sports....no thanks. He hadnt heard of it. Ah well. I can live without it.

You sure that's not the EXTRA cost on top of your existing contract?

if you ​pay for line rental up front for the next 12 months it's 180.00 which saves about 36.00

​It's definitely not an extra cost on top of what I'm already paying.

Like I said, I thought it was too good to be true who it was offered to me yesterday.
You all know what it's like when you contact these companies. You get told different things from different people - hence the reason I called them back today to confirm.

When you call them, make sure you specifically mention the Big Kahuna Bundle Sports + Cinema offer. This is what the guy I spoke with today told me it's called.
I had the same call, but that's not the right price, you need to add the phone on, mine came to around £73pm for everything with unlimited mobile calls on my landline, the sky movies is for 6 months and you don't get sky sports it was bt sports and espn sports. Still good deal, but it's not the price you listed. - post proof if it is pls.

​I was thinking of doing this because I paid line rental up front on my existing broadband deal. But then I thought it's a very very good deal already and I don't want to make any alterations in case it throws a spanner in the works

​The phone package I'm getting with this deal is the absolute basic one with only free weekend calls I believe.

I asked them repeatedly yesterday and today if £38 is All I have to pay each month for 12 months on a 12 month contract and whether it includes line rental to which I was told yes. £9.99 is the only additional one off fee I have to pay for activation.

I'm not sure how I can post proof as yet. Perhaps when my first bill comes through.

Because my current Sky TV contract ends in the middle of September, they've pushed my installation date to the middle of August. Come close to this date and I'll ring them again to delay installation for another few weeks but August was all they could delay it until when I spoke with them yesterday.
you wish it was 200MB

unfortunately its 200Mb

​Thanks for correction. 200Mb will have to do then!
Seems like this has been a "customer specific" deal that the advisor has got wrong, NOBODY will get this deal offered calling for it, it negates the need for line saver up front , cold soz.
