Over a barrell

I pay 73.36 a month to Virgin and I've had enough!

I'm on a mates rates, premiere collection which includes:
  • Talk International 2
  • Talk Unlimited
  • Talk Mobile 2
  • Full House TV (XL)
  • 1 Additional TV Box
  • V HD Monthly Fee
  • TiVO Monthly Fee
  • VIVID 200 Opitcal Fibre
  • Mates Rates Premiere
Then phone line rental of 19

Now all I want is 200MB internet, no phone line, TV I just want my nat geo type channels (have the channel list and been through it) tempted to loose the second box. I want to reduce the package.

I either just get 200Mb from them and go to Sky, works out same cost there abouts but their new Q box lets me watch my TiVO stuff which would mean I get more from my package.

Any thoughts?

And lo, he who shall be understanding of the Virgin Media pricing structure will be known as a sage, and a great thinker who can unravel its mysteries.

Do you mean that you are now able to hook your Sky Q box up to your TiVo to watch any unwatched recordings, or have I misunderstood?

Re: Over a barrell

The Sky Q box is 1 main box and then you have one in another room, which is wireless but apparently allows you watch all your content on your main one you have recorded.

Re: Over a barrell

I'm still trying to figure out how you are over a barrel?

You have choice, what you do is up to you and your needs.

You would only be "Over a barrel" if you had no choice.

BTW there are many VM customers who would love to have "Mates rates!"
