The VIP Bundle is ideal for...

Lightning-fast broadband

Virgin Media's VIP Bundle comes with a download speed of 200Mb, which is quick enough to download an HD film in just a few minutes. All downloading is unlimited so you can stream to your hearts content - and on as many devices at once as you want without any waiting around.

200Mb broadband is one of the fastest widely available broadband speeds in the UK, so you really are getting the best there is when you sign up for the VIP.

Hundreds of channels including Sky Sports HD and Sky Cinema HD

TV heaven, that is what the VIP bundle is all about. There is a fantastic variety of channels on offer across lifestyle, entertainment, kids, music and more. For sports fans you also get Sky Sports, BT Sport and ESPN, all in HD.

You also get Sky Cinema in HD and over 800 Sky movies on demand. You can also record up to 500 hours of your favourite shows or movies on the V6 box, plus on top of that you can record six channels at the same time.

The capability to record up to six shows at once on the Virgin V6 TiVo box

The VIP bundle comes with not one, but two brand new V6 TiVo boxes, so you can stream and record shows on both. Each box has the capacity to record up to six shows at one time, meaning you have the potential to record 12 at a time. Never again should there be arguments over programme clashes.

The Virgin TV Anywhere app also enables you to enjoy your favourite TV shows wherever and whenever you like. (Just be aware that the TV Anywhere app needs a wi-fi connection – you can't use it with 3G or 4G.)

Worth considering before you buy the VIP Bundle...

It's a bit hefty on price

With the amount you are getting with the bundle, it’s no surprise that there’s an expensive price tag attached to it. Virgin Media offers a competitive deal of £91 per month for 12 months. Line rental is included within that price.

The lifetime spend on this package is intimidating, so you’d better be sure that you both need it – and can afford it.

No Sky Atlantic

As all-encompassing as Virgin's VIP Bundle may be, it still cannot offer Sky Atlantic. The only way to get this is to take out a separate subscription to Now TV, which you cannot watch through the TiVo box - you need another device such as a tablet or games console for this.

As with all Virgin Media services, availability is limited

Although Virgin Media offers the fastest widely available broadband, it is restricted to certain areas. If you can’t receive Virgin Media broadband, you’ll have to look at deals from other providers. So before getting your hopes up, make sure you check that Virgin is in your area using our postcode checker tool.

Still undecided? Consider a different Virgin bundle

With impressive broadband speed, tons of channels and an optional mobile SIM, the VIP bundle is an attractive proposition. However, it is a lot of money to fork out, so if you're after a quality broadband and TV bundle that doesn't cost quite so much, it's worth looking at the Full House bundle, or even the Player Bundle, and bolt on any extras you might want.
