Straight from the Horses Mouth – My Virgin TV Experience

I’ve just recently had Virgin Media TV installed into my new flat, and thought I’d give you a run down of the experience. As a regular blogger, it’s sometimes good to give first hand feedback, and this experience is well worth reporting. I ordered my Virgin Media bundle on the Tuesday, and was quite surprised when I was informed that the whole package would not only cost me just £20 a month, but also that it could be fitted on the Thursday! For this I received –

  • 10MB broadband
  • Unlimited downloads
  • 65 TV Channels
  • Free Wireless Router
  • Free Weekend calls to UK landlines
  • Plus £50 off!

I decided to go with the V+ HD package, which costs only an extra £5 a month but also allows me to record up to 80 of TV and pause and record my favourite shows. The guys popped round and were in and out within an hour, and that included a full guide into how to use the TV box. If you’ve used Sky TV Plus before then you’ll have no worries, and the amount of extra features is astounding!

Virgin Film on Demand allows you to hire rentals at the same price as Blockbuster, and also at the same time of release. So on Sunday night, I settled down to watch ‘Neds’, the latest release at the rental store without having to leave the comfort of my own front room, brilliant! There’s so much more on demand stuff than Sky. There’s whole series of comedies, including my favourites Peep Show and The Inbetweeners. Plus, on Sunday I forgot that Louis Theroux’s ‘Miami Mega Jail’ was on. Not a problem. I simply flicked back through their archives (Virgin Media record most of the major TV channels) and found the show the following day. So even if you forget to record, you can still find the programmes you want to see at the press of the button.

The installation was completed with the minimum of fuss, and I was up and running with my broadband, TV and phone in only an hour! Seriously, Virgin are really switched on with their customer care. I even received a phone call the next day to ensure I was happy and that everything was working correctly. I couldn’t recommend this service more, particularly the TV, so I’ll just leave you with the link below to the offer I received and if you like what you’ve read, get involved, you won’t regret it.
