    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 Big Bundles. 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, EE 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, kids' channels, 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 your favourite shows on computers and mobile devices, wherever you’ve got a wi-fi connection.

    Pros & cons

    Pros

    • Take TV alone or with broadband
    • Add BT Sports and Sky Sports
    • Options with TiVo and Virgin TV Anywhere

    Cons

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

    Which package is right for me?

    With or without a Bundle?

    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 four ready-made Big Bundles.

    TV M includes 60+ channels including 10 HD

    This is Virgin’s entry-level TV package, which unlike the other three, is only available as part of a package with the Big Easy Bundle. There’s not a huge amount of choice but you’ll get the basic Freeview channels, plus 10 in HD too, including popular stations like Dave, E4, Film4, CBeebies and Sky News.

    TV M+ includes 120+ channels including 11 HD

    The next step up almost doubles your channel choice for less than double the price. TV M+ is included in the Big Bang bundle 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 of the Big Bundles but you can add to any broadband and phone plan to create your own package.

    TV XL includes 230+ channels including 43 HD

    This is the daddy of TV packages and includes loads of HD channels plus BT Sport and ESPN. It is featured in the Big Kahuna and Big Daddy bundle or as a standalone service. TV XL is one of the most complete TV packages on the market in the UK, with its only real competition coming from Sky. Its depth of content comes with a high price tag, but if you're looking for the best variety of programming on Virgin Media, this is where you'll find it.

    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 much 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.

    Hi Ann, To get Virgin TV only + BT Sport + Sky Sports, you’re looking at around £62 per month for the cheapest package, plus £49.95 set-up. Hannah R – Cable.co.uk

    Can I have just TV (including all sports channels) I do not want telephone or broadband. If that is possible, how much will it cost.

    4 days ago

    Hi Tracy, You can take a broadband and TV plan without phone and the right one for you will depend on what broadband speed you need and how many TV channels you would like. The cheapest option is 50Mb broadband + TV More with TiVo 500GB box, which costs £43.99 per month plus £49.95 installation. However, the best deals are reserved for the three-in-one bundles that also include home phone. Currently, the cheapest option is the Big Easy Bundle, which features 50Mb broadband + TV M with TiVo 500GB box + weekend calls, which costs £32.99 per month for 12 months then £38.99 thereafter (including £16.99 line rental), with free installation on an 18-month contract. Set-up times vary but it is usually within one month. I hope that helps. Hannah R – Cable.co.uk

    My mun is on pension credits and wants a cheap land line phone package what is the best?

    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
