New Virgin Media Customer Deal

16 replies
Found 6th Jan 2009
Hi, i'm looking to get tv, internet and phone, what are the best deals for new Virgin Media customers? I have looked on the website and it all looks quite standard and what they offer when you call them is even less. Are they not desperate for business any more? any help appreciated.

i went with virgin before xmas and they will give you more if you call them and ask i got a V+ box that was supposed to be £150 showed £75 online when i called i got it for £30!!!!! worth a try

Give them a call and tell them that Sky are going to give you a +box free and other bits and bobs and see what they have to say.

are they not doing the '3 for £30' and '2 for £20' deal any more?

i called them and they said the V+ box was £99 and wouldn't budge all i got offered were the basic packages at a higher price than the ones advertised on their website!!

tink3862 - did you ask for anything in particular when you called?

I Have Virgin, I Have Only Just Started Contract, But I Think I Might Call Them And Say Sky Have Offered Me A Sky+ Box Free And I Am Thinking Of Getting It For My Bedroom, Or Can They Offer Me A Virgin+ Box Free Or Cheap, I Will Post What They Said

They do a 3 for £27 deal...called the "sweet 16 deal" (because they say its £16 per month plus £11 per month line rental) 10Mb Broadband, L Tv & Phone...go through Quidco to get £65 cashback

do you get sky one on the M TV package??

You could try Zavvi, when I went instore they were selling virgin media deals very cheap.
I think a lot depends on who you speak to on the phone.

Sky 1, 2 & 3, plus several other Sky channels & importantly Sky Sports News


EDIT: Ooops..my mistake...Sky one not available on M

I hope you won't regret it. I only saw your entry now. I'd stay away from VM. There customer service (after you signed) is dreadfully aggressive. They say their broadband is unlimited but it's not true. You get reduced speed when you download a lot (watch TV, etc.). You will probably have only 1mb or less on the 2mb (M) package. TV is mainly freeview channels plus Linving TV and Challange (no Sky). The telephone service is also very expensive. You can get UK and Europe calls for 1p per minute on a BT line, whereas VM charges 20p per minute for Europe. You should look into this within the next seven days because you can cancel the deal (within 7 days) if you find that it doesn't suit you.
