Any scope to re-negotiate this do u think with Virgin:

Bundle Charges

Talk Weekends
Fully Itemised Billing
T V Size: X L
2 Additional V Box
V+ HD Monthly Fee
TiVo Monthly Fee
Extra Set Top Box Discount
Broadband Size: L
Loyalty Customer

Bundle Charges total
£54.14
Promotional offer(s)
CR £11.00


Total excluding line rental £43.14

(You'Re Receiving A £11 Loyalty Discount. If You Change Your Package You May Lose This Discount Which Will End 01-DEC-13 )

One of the extra boxes they gave without charge is in cupboard, we don't watch hardly any of the tv channels but the kids will lose a couple of the ones if we downgraded. Any advice or am I getting such a good deal that there is no scope to change?

That's cheaper than what I pay for pretty much the same package on mates rates (L broadband is 60 Mb right?). Are you sure that this includes the recent price increase?

My package

Talk Unlimited
TV Size: X L
1 Additional V Box
V+ HD Monthly Fee
TiVo Monthly Fee
Broadband L (Up To 30mb)
Loyalty Customer

Essential Collection total £54.00

I have only just noticed this but it says I have a V Box but it is V+HD box. I better not be paying for that and the monthly fee.

Promotional offer(s) You'Re Receiving A Loyalty Discount It's For £11. If You Change Your Package You May Lose This Discount. Which Will End 30-SEP-14

CR £11.00

Phone line rental total:

£14.99

Plus Sky Sports at half price for 3 months

£12.50 ish pm.

So in total about £60 ish pm. Sounds good to me.

Although my last bill (21st Feb) was £98.54 as I cancelled Sky movies and HD a few weeks ago. A bit confusing lol .

Hi,
With all this talk of price increases I thought it might be interesting for us Virgin customers to compare their current monthly packages/prices.

My package is:
BB 20MB (doubled from 10MB for free)
TV XL
Phone - eve/w/e calls free
Tivo box
Virgin HD box in bedroom

My monthly payment is £52/month.

This price is post reduction by retentions about 6 months ago.

I thought this was a very good deal until I compared with my neighbour who pays £8 less for the same deal but with 60MB BB.

i got sky+hd 2 boxes with en extra,movies,sports,espn channels,hd channels, i think its 86 quid per month.
i got bt,24/7 with 0845/0870 numbers.i think thats 21 quid per month.
i got virgin media bb 30mbps thats 22 quid per month..
all together 129 quid i paying every month..
i got o2 contract 51 quid per month unlimited calls to x network and texts..

I have;

TV M+
Phone XL
BB 30Mb
Caller display.
V+ box.

I pay £52.24 a month but using the "build your own bundle" on the VM website it only quotes it should be £51.24 a month...and that's with a Tivo box......why?

We only have cable XL package with Sky Sports and Sky Movies and 10 normal HD channels, but pay around £85 a month!! Only got the V-HD box two months ago but this seems very expensive!!!!. We dont have Sky Sports HD ot Sky Movies HD. Perfectly happy with our other landline and internet providers so dont want to change. Phoning Virgin is also a pain in the ass as we dont have a password on the account but they keep asking for one, also my Dad who is almost 80 got one of the security questions wrong so we couldnt ask about the bill, on the verge of leaving now!!!!

Since I only joined Virgin 2 days ago

60mb BB
XL TV
Talk Unlimited + Line Rental
1TB Tivo (Free)

£43.99 for 12 months, then £67.99 for the last 6 months of the minimum period. I'm also getting the additional box, even though I don't need it. I was advised to keep it anyway as it wouldn't affect the price and also that I could possibly send it back after the first year for a possible further reduction.

Also Free Installation and £75 quid off my first bill, making it only £17
