Hello there,

I'm curious to find out if anyone else out there with the basic Virgin M+ package has noticed that the Syfy and Syfy+1 channels are available today, as i don't usually get these channels.
I've searched online for any info about a promotion or something but haven't found anything, i'm wondering if its a fluke and if its just me or everyone.

If anyone with the M+ package could have a look and let me know i'd be very grateful.

Thanks alot

From the Virgin Media community forum
Great news for customers as we are moving the following channels permanently into the M+ pack from Tuesday 15th January.

Movies 24+ channel number 420 (previously in L pack)
SyFy channel number 135 (previously in L pack)
SyFy +1 channel number 166 (previously in XL pack)
Universal +1 channel number 163 (previously in L pack)

Martine,
Why are VM continually degrading the XL pack? We keep on seeing channels moved to other packs but there is little sign of any improvements to XL,

Also Cartoon Network and Boomerang have appeared in M+ today not sure if it's just a free trial or not though.

Was thinking of moving to M+ but the Virgin website indicates Living has been removed. Can anyone with M+ confirm this? Thanks.

If I were you I'd go for the Size L pack unless you need the + channels or the HD channels

Sky Living and Sky Living+ are on Size M+ but Sky Livingit and Sky Livingit+ is in the Size L pack, that is why my brother just upgraded his package
because the Size M+ pack was not of any value to him, he likes the Sky Living channels

However I am on the Size XL pack, because I like the + channels and other channels that are not available in the Size M+ pack

Here is the List for the Size L pack

Thanks, with the addition of TCM I think I will upgrade again, dropped to M when the price rises were published.

My new Price List for the VIP Collection package is now out, if you have everything from Virgin then it will now cost you just over 214 a month

See Here https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3o0...pJZ2dHT2s/edit

Please Note: The PDF File above only opens up using Microsoft Internet Explorer, for some reason it does not open using Firefox

Really hoping here that the 214 is a typo
