Hi there, my first post here but had to make an account for this and hoping to find more info..

I spoke to Virgin last week about renewing my package, i asked about the WWE Network and was put through to the right department for my question, when i asked the lady if the WWE Network was ever going to come to Virgin she said it was going to be there in the next update.. which she said was at least a month away (obviously an update for the new Sky channels are coming this week but i hope they throw in the app at the same time). I asked her numerous times about the network app and she just kept saying yes it is coming.

I really hope she is right and not just fobbing me off about it, i might call back this week for some verification, really hope we get it though.

I'm assuming you mean Billions if so I agree it's a great series in my opinion.

No plans to start an "Rebrand" thread.

BT customers would be as well signing up for the NOW TV monthly sports price. They'll get all channels in 720p instead of 1 channel in HD for the same price. It's a no brainer.

The time scale we have is by the end of this year, info we have so far indicates you will still need to subscribe to WWE Network via WWE and you would just log in via the v6 app, i must stress these are only estimated timelines. VM customer service are well known though for lying but on this occasion they may be correct as it does tie in with the timeframe we have.

Or even contacting SKY they may get them a lot cheaper by taking a SKY tv pack i know someone who has the box set pack plus SKY Sports for £25pm for 12 months.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

I don’t think the sky sports rebrand is a good deal

For just one channel on its own is £18, £25 for he

For just two channels it’s £22, £29 for he

For three channels is £26, £33 for HD

But once you select 3 channels they advise all sky sports for £27.5, £34 for he

It is still £4 cheaper than VM

Also sky sports action and arena counts as one channel and both football as one channel. But £18 for football good deal because the hd pack is still £7 even for just two football channels, and main event is only with sports pack, why is there still a hd charge

There is a new customer deal all sky sports for £20 for a year, how do they plan to sell one for £18 to existing customers

Action and Arena seem to be charged as one channel but the two football channels seem to definitely be charged as two channels.

If you have SKY Movies on SKY then it's only £10 to add 1 sports channel

You'd be surprised what people will pay to watch football that's half the problem.
