Hi yeah I am an existing customer. If your not in the current contract best thing to do is log on to your virgin account. And then go to contact - a chat box will appear. When it came to renewal I said I am paying £49 or something like that and new customers are getting x/y/z for £39 - you can see that I have been a customer for a number of years can you give me the same deal as new customers - that’s how they matched it. In relation to the v6 box I would say that everyone has been upgraded to v6 box for free back in Jan / Feb - here is the article free v6 upgrade and they should be able to do it for you. Just be pleasant and say that as a new customer you can get x/y/z and they should be able to match it. It’s all about being pleasant and nice. My sister was in the same situation as you, she logged onto her account and I did all the typing and knocked her payments down from £70 odd pounds to £39 and increased her internet speed too even though she didn’t need it.
Do you seriously keep your CRT TV?! What you need is an old plasma TV - I have had my main 1080p 50" Panasonic Plasma TV from new for 10 years and a 1080p 46" Panasonic TV that is 8 years old but I bought last year off a friend for £50. Even though you can see the difference between HD and SD channels, they do a really good job of upscaling even the really low quality channels. Loads on Ebay, just buy one locally that you can see running and check it doesn't have any screen burn - also they do use more energy than an LCD screen, and weigh a lot more - but worth it for the quality.
Thank you. Don't have easy access to my satellite unfortunately. If I have to, I'll try to hire someone local.
I agree! Mmm, any sort of apps for Record TV? I'm able to sideload and all of that sort of stuff, gives me an excuse to get a Fire TV stick!
Most Brazilian TV is pretty bad in my opinion. I downloaded some apps onto my Fire TV box to get Brazilian channels, as my wife and daughter are Brazilian. Turned out they weren't interested in having any Brazilian TV, even Globo which they watched all the time when they lived there. Now my wife says UK television is far superior, and loves the BBC and even Radio 4! My daughter however just watches endless episodes of the Big Bang Theory and Friends on E4 (annoyed)
