Just signed up - £15 for TV, Internet, Phone & Line Rental


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

I've just signed up to Virgin Media for their Player Bundle at an offer price of £15 per month for TV, Internet and Line Rental. I'm cancelling with BT due to their price increase so thought this was an excellent price.

Most other companies are charging more than £15 just for the line rental, so I thought I had got a fantastic deal with this. I've also recommended this to my friends and they are going for it too.

Does anyone know whether caller display is provided free of charge with Virgin ? - I know many other companies such as BT, TalkTalk and EE provide it at no additional cost these days.

Thanks in advance

£15 is an excellent price.


According to their website the player bundle is £29 a month for 12 months. Then £45 a month (£14.99 activation fee)

Well, you know what they say, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".

That £15 is probably just the activation fee. If you want to be sure what you have signed up for, log into your account at https://my.virginmedia.com/home/index. That should also show which phone services are included in your package.

There is NO WAY that virgin media would sell anything for £15 a month for tv, internet and line rental. Impossible. You better check your ebilling as it will cost £29 a month for 12 months with £14.99 activation fee with The Player Bundle inc line rental

There's something odd about your posts - 6 posts. I'm leaving BT and joining SSE, I'm leaving BT but I thought you'd already done that, I'm joining Virgin. Ask some inane question or comment each time

look at my forum
will they want modem back
do they do caller display

Nothing funny about my posts.

I was initially with BT and left to go to SSE with their £21 per month deal. When connected I was experiencing major issues will slow downs between about 6pm at night until the following morning. They let me leave penalty free because of this and I signed up to BT under a cashback/voucher deal. I've been with them since August of last year but they are now putting up their prices. I'm therefore leaving them penalty free and moving to this Virgin Media deal which I have negotiated with them over the phone.

You are making this up for reasons unknown, as no such deals exist.

Why would I make it up !? - I've had it installed today and confirmed by Live Chat. You can choose to believe or not believe, I don't mind either way.

No ones gonna to believe you because Virgin Media won't do £15 or less for bundle player. No way, the live chat staff are lying to you. You will end up ebilling of future monthly charge of £29 for 12 months then £45 a month thereafter.

My online account is already showing £29.00 with £14.00 credit applied today, so looks promising. I've referred a few friends to this deal too and they have been accepted for it. I doubt Virgin would agree to this and go back on their word (although I suppose only time will tell as they don't sound to be the best for customer service).

This is one of Virgin's referral deals. I signed up to the exact same offer myself a few weeks ago. What the OP hasn't mentioned is that the person recommending it receives £50 credit as does the person signing up.

I received the same player bundle at £15 but I also had the option of the 100Mbps internet player bundle for £20.

These are not published deals and purely available by word of mouth only.

If anyone is interested in this I can recommend you too, but can confirm it is certainly a genuine offer.

To answer your question about Caller ID - it depends where you are. In some areas, the equipment originally installed all those years ago didn't support it, and Liberty Media and their too-numerous-to-count predecessors haven't spent the money to replace it. Not supported where I am now (Dartford) nor where I used to be (Epsom).

thought about VM, but likely to stay with current isp

i use vm for mobile, £10 for 100 mins and unlimited data, I could go for unlimited minutes, data and text for £15 pm

then would only be using the landline for incoming calls and adsl

I like my current isp tech support, no script monkeys employed
