Virgin TV Packages
Virgin TV Deals for June 2013
If you live in a Virgin cable TV area then Virgin Media TV is one way to enjoy the digital TV revolution. It can be taken as a standalone TV package, as part of a TV and broadband package or as part of a triple Virgin Media TV, broadband and phone package.
Virgin Media TV packages
However you decide to subscribe to Virgin's TV service it has some fantastic features, a good choice of channels, a range of set-top boxes and comes with access to on-demand content including full seasons of TV shows, HD sports and 3D movies.
Virgin Media TiVo
When you subscribe to Virgin TV you’ll be supplied with a Virgin Media TiVo, which is far more than a simple set-top box. The TiVo delivers all of your chosen package’s channels and also unlocks the world of on-demand content but it also acts as a digital TV recorder – and it is a recorder like no other that ever came before it.
With a Virgin Media TiVo powering your cable TV package you can pause and rewind live TV programmes, and record up to three channels at a time. It will even let you schedule the recording of every episode of a series with just the press of a button, which is just perfect for soap fans. But that’s not all.
Your TiVo will keep an eye out for new programmes starring your favourite actors, or from your favourite genres. And incredibly, it will even automatically record new TV shows that it thinks you will like based on your previous viewing habits.
Give it a hand with it’s recommendations by giving each automatic recording up to three “thumbs ups” or “thumbs downs” and it will work even harder to make sure you get to know about the best new shows that you may otherwise have missed.
Virgin TV channels
There are three TV packages from Virgin. The higher your subscription charge the more channels you will have access to. As this is a digital TV service all subscribers will get access to the full range of Freeview channels as standard.
With Virgin Media TV M+ you can enjoy 100+ digital TV channels through your Virgin V box. These include all of the Freeview offerings plus a handful of pay-TV only channels including Sky1, Sky Living and British Eurosport. Virgin Media TV L is the intermediate TV package. It features 135+ channels including all the Freeview channels plus subscription favourites Sky1, Sky Living, VH1 and SyFy.
The ultimate Virgin Media TV package is Virgin Media TV XL. This includes a whopping 200+ digital TV channels including Sky1, VH1, SyFy, Comedy Central, MTV, FX, Disney and the much-loved sports channel ESPN.
Virgin Media HD
The fantastic news for those wanting to make the leap to HD is that whichever set-top box your subscription comes with it will be HD-ready. TV M and TV L customers can enjoy 8 bonus Freeview HD channels, which includes BBC One HD, FilmFour HD and ITV1 HD while TV XL customers can receive 30 HD channels including EuroSport HD, FX HD, Sky1 HD and SyFy HD.
And once you’ve made the leap to Virgin HD a whole world of high definition movies and programmes will be yours to enjoy. And if you’ve got the necessary equipment you can even enjoy on demand 3D movies in the comfort of your own home.
