    caved in at £38 for the full tv package plus a new hd+ box and sky dish with free fitting. not entirely happy with myself but it really does seem that the days of mega discounts are gone for now

    With discounts expiring our Virgin Media has gone up from under £90 to £130 so I phoned them up for a moan yesterday and to ask them to re-apply the discounts to be told I could have £9 off for the next 12 months. So I told them that wasn't good enough and to cancel which will take effect in 30 days.

    We have:
    • 'Full House' TV with Sky Sports but not Movies - I'd happily cut back on TV but if I gave up Sky Sports I'd spend more in the pub than the cost of the subscription
    • 200MB broadband - on the face of it, I'd say we need this (with three teenagers in the house) but it wasn't all that long ago that Virgin's max here was 50MB and we coped with that so we'd obviously be able to survive on the 70MB that BT reckon they can give me.
    • Landline - that we barely use but is bundled with the TV and broadband so it would cost us more to not have the landline


    Anyone played this game with Virgin recently?
    When did they get back to you (assuming they did)? Was the retention off any good?

    18 days into my cancelation and no call back, i played this game the last time, got I think roughly £10 off last time, so will wait and see, i was only on 200Mbs broad band with no extras and discount ended, so it was going up by £17 a month, so looking to go over to Three home broadband as I am getting around 65Mbs in the house and for £21 a month I will be happy with that

    My bill jumped back up to £85 again a couple of months ago so its time I made the call. Really need to get %50 off. Here's hoping.

    Why not get one of the other family members to take out a new deal?

    I pay £23 sky (inc spirts but no movies)
    £23 virgin fibre.

    Iím tight so will bin the fibre

    I get 8gb on my phone for £7.50 with sky and have loads left each month

    I phoned Virgin last week as our discounted 'VIP' bundle (Full House inc. movies & sport, landline & unlimited calls, 320 meg BB) expires at the start of July. Asked if the deal could be rolled over & was told it couldn't. What I could get (for the same £95 cost as currently) was the same TV & telephone package, an upgrade to 500 meg BB & a free SIM card with unlimited calls, text & data. It's called the 'Oomph' package. May be worth calling back & enquiring about it...

    Just had the call. Keeping everything we currently have:
    • All TV inc. Sports but not Sky Movies
    • 200MB Broadband
    • Landline with 'Talk Anytime'
    • An additional TIVO box

    for £61. This was their first offer and I probably should have pushed for more but, honestly, I'm very happy with it so just took it.
    Same again next year then...

    My Virgin Media VIP package negotiated last December was £84.75 with landline rental paid in advance, I read about their Ultimate Oomph package which upgrades my BB to 500mb and throws in an unlimited Calls, Texts and Data SIM for £80 a month, phoned up and they changed me over with no problems which I think is a bit of a bargain considering the unlimited data SIM is £27 on it’s own.

    It also includes 2 V6 boxes, Sky Sports HD and Cinema, BT Sport UHD, anytime landline calls

    Well i was getting ready for my yearly battle with sky and on checking my account they seem to be offering me the same discount 50% off full sports and ent package without even asking.

    I can only see my next three future bills and i have not had an email,text or letter with any offers.

    Seems strange and as anyone else had this.

    I have been with them 16 years and had the 50% offer for last 8 so maybe i have worn them down.
