        How to compare and buy Virgin TV packages

        How do I compare different packages?

        Compare your options in the table above

        Virgin Media offers a wealth of TV options. You can take a standalone Virgin TV package, double up with phone or broadband, or sign up to all three services in one of Virgin’s six Collections. The main options are outlined in the table above to help you compare Virgin Media packages, and we’ll guide you through the need-to-know details to help you decide between them.

        Availability

        Check what’s available in your area

        Virgin Media TV is not available to every address in the UK so it’s worth checking to see if you can get it in your area before you continue. By entering your postcode into the checker at the top of the table, you can also compare TV packages available to you.

        Check the detail

        Understand the terms and conditions

        Virgin Media TV contract lengths range from 12 to 18 months so it’s worth scanning the small print of any deals you’re interested in before you sign up. There will be fees if you want to cancel early for example, and you’ll need to return all equipment including any TV set-top boxes, broadband kit, remote controls and power leads or adapters you may have. Also look at installation costs and extra set-top box charges to ensure it’s all within your budget.

        Why choose a Virgin Media TV package?

        Lots of channel choice

        Whether you choose to take Virgin TV and broadband, or just TV, or go for the three-in-one bundle with a phone line too, there are lots of flexible options and channel choice to suit most tastes. Virgin is one of only two subscription TV providers to offer standalone TV (Sky is the other), as BT and TalkTalk require you to take broadband and line rental too.

        Selection of optional extras

        If you fancy extra specialist channels, there are several options to bump up your TV plan for an extra monthly fee or opt for a package that includes them as standard. We’re talking BT Sport, Sky Sports and Sky Movies, plus a collection of Asian channels, Baby TV, individual sports channels like MUTV and adult channels.

        Multiple viewing options

        If you choose to take a TiVo box with your subscription, you’ll be able to pause, rewind and record live TV, and recover anything you accidentally delete. You’ll also get access to TV on demand and catch-up programming to watch shows and films whenever you want, and lots of search options to find what you’re after. You can buy extra set-top boxes to access your content in different rooms, or use the Virgin TV Anywhere app to watch all of your favourite shows on computers and mobile devices whenever you’ve got a broadband connection.

        Pros & cons

        Pros

        • Take TV alone or with broadband and/or phone
        • Add BT Sports, Sky Sports, BT Sport and more
        • Great options with TiVo and Virgin TV Anywhere app

        Cons

        • No Sky Atlantic
        • Less channels than Sky
        • Heavyweight packages are expensive

        Which package is right for me?

        With or without a Collection

        Virgin Media offers four different TV options, which are available standalone, with phone or broadband, or in a bundle of all three services with one of Virgin’s six ready-made Collections.

        TV M includes 60+ channels including 10 HD

        This is Virgin’s entry-level TV package, which unlike the other five, is only available as part of a package with the Starter Collection. There’s not a huge amount of choice but you’ll get the basic five channels plus BBC 3 and 4 (in HD too), and popular ones like Dave, E4, Film4, CBeebies and Sky News.

        TV M+ includes 120+ channels including 11 HD

        The next step up doubles your channel choice for less than double the price. TV M+ is also included in the Essential Collection and features Discovery, Sky Living, Gold and Cartoon Network plus Sky On Demand and pay-per-view movies.

        TV L includes 170+ channels including 11 HD

        If you’re looking for more variety, TV L might be a better fit. It brings more choice across entertainment, news, lifestyle, documentary, music and kids TV, so it’s likely to keep the whole family happy. TV L is not included in any Collections but you can add to any broadband and phone plan to create your own bundle.

        TV XL includes 230+ channels including 143 HD

        This is the daddy of TV packages and includes loads of HD channels plus BT Sport and ESPN. It is featured in the Essential Family, Essential Family Sports and Premiere Collections, or as a standalone service. TV XL is also included in the VIP Collection, but this super-duper plan also features Sky Sports HD and Sky Movies HD.

        What will I need?

        An engineer visit to install your line

        When you sign up to a Virgin TV package an engineer visit will be arranged within a couple of weeks to install the new TV cable at your property. This is free with some plans if you buy online but subject to a £49.95 fee with others, so be sure to check.

        A set-top box of your choice

        You’ll need to select a set-top box to receive the channels in your subscription and there are three to choose from. The V HD box is offered free of charge but has no recording capacity, whereas the 500GB and 1TB TiVo boxes can record up to 250 hours and 500 hours of TV respectively, but come with extra fees.

        No need for broadband

        Unlike its rivals, you don’t need a broadband connection to access TV on demand and catch-up content at Virgin. And since Virgin TV uses its own cable, if you do have a broadband service (with Virgin or any other provider) your usage limit and online performance will be unaffected by your TV activities. Equally if you are looking for a broadband and TV deal, you will find plenty of choice.

        How do I switch?

        Check availability and cancel your old services

        Once you’ve checked that you can get the Virgin TV services you want in your area, you can click on your chosen deal above to take you through the sign-up process. Then just contact your old provider to cancel (30 days’ notice is normally required) and wait for your new services to be installed.

        Watch out for fees

        It’s best to wait until the end of any existing contract to avoid early cancellation fees from your current provider. Also get confirmation from Virgin whether your chosen package includes installation or if you have to pay for it on top.

        Six essential questions before you buy

        1. Do I want a standalone Virgin TV package or phone and broadband as well?
        2. Are the services I want available in my area?
        3. How many channels will keep my household happy?
        4. Do I want extra content like BT Sport, Sky Sports or Sky Movies?
        5. How many hours’ recording capacity do I need?
        6. Do I understand the terms and conditions of the deal?

        Cable.co.uk recommends

        Now you’re armed with the knowledge of all that Virgin TV has to offer, it’s time to make your decision. Draw up a list of your requirements, like your family’s favourite channels, your broadband and phone needs, and your monthly budget, then pick a package that fits the bill.

        I have been with Virgin for years, and pay around £71 a month for my package, broadband, V+, Tivo, phone and TV. I don't really watch an awful lot of the channels, as there is nothing on them, except repeats. Is there any way I can change my package? as it seems like the big kahuna is around about the same price, in fact less. the only thing I am really happy with is the broadband, and the phone calls are very expensive.

        2nd July 2014

        Hi Rebecca

        Thanks for your question. As your an existing customer this depends on your individual contract. If you give Virgin a call or log-in to their website you'll be able to find out how much it costs to add TV to your package.

        We already have broadband (best package). How much would TV package be on top if we keep broadband. No phone. We want all channels (not ESPN) and want HD and multiple room in one other room. Thanks

        My existing package costs about £59 I want to add a second TV upstairs. A basic service of just a few TV channels with no HD no recording no catchup no broadband. I am quoted £65 plus installation £49. This doesn't seem particularly good to me. What do you say

        We have the builders in who are knocking various walls/ceilings down. They keep asking where we will locate the wiring/receivers for our various TVs.as they need to know for the new build I would also like broadband and at the moment with TalkTalk I can make as many free phone calls to Australia as long as I keep the conversation to under one hour. I therefore need a landline for regular contact with my family. Please advise me of your charges for the above package. Thank you

        My son is in tempory accomodation. The previous owners had Virgin. Although there is a phone point in the flat it does not have a landline phone. Could he have the TV package and internet connection?. Also if he moved what would happen.
