                            How do I compare Virgin Media and Sky packages?

                            Virgin Media and Sky are big names in the world of broadband, TV and home phone. They have dozens of deals that you can look through above. For more info on how to compare and which deal may be best for you, keep reading.

                            Compare bundles from all the providers with our comparison page

                            Our comparison pages are easy to use. We list all the Virgin Media and Sky packages in order of price, with the cheapest ones right at the top. Click the deal’s name to find out more. Clicking will show you all sorts of extra info, from channel lists and HD options to a detailed price breakdown. Navigate to the right of the package and click the ‘see deal’ button once you’ve picked a deal.

                            Availability

                            Sky and Virgin Media aren’t available everywhere. Enter your postcode in our checker at the top of the page to see if they’re available where you are.

                            Check the detail

                            Small print often hides a devilish amount of detail, from installation fees to charges for receiving paper bills. There are several details to look out for when picking a deal.

                            Make sure you’re getting exactly what you want

                            Make a list of what you’re looking for before you start comparing. Decide on the channels you want, the broadband speed you’re after, and the type of phone plan you want (do you want free calls all week or just at weekends, for instance?). Once you’ve made your list, click the deal’s name to see if it contains everything that you’re after.

                            Check for installation fees

                            Some of the packages and deals may have installation fees. Where available, we’ve listed them on the deal itself. Some installation charges, such as new line installation fees, are not listed. These installation charges can be expensive, sometimes running into hundreds of pounds. Be sure to factor them into your finances when deciding on a deal.

                            Look for hidden fees

                            Delivery charges are common with TV and broadband packages, but are generally less than £10. If you want to receive paper bills you’ll have to pay more. The same applies if you want to pay for services without relying on direct debit payments.

                            Why choose Virgin Media or Sky?

                            Everyone’s heard of Virgin Media and Sky, but why would you want to join them in the first place? Here are a couple of great reasons.

                            Virgin Media has the fastest commercially available broadband

                            Slow download speeds can be frustrating. Virgin Media solves this problem by offering download speeds of up to 350Mbps. This level of speed is ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time online – streaming videos, playing online games, and downloading files well into the night.

                            Sky has the widest selection of TV channels

                            If TV is more your thing, you may prefer to join Sky. The provider has the widest selection of TV channels in the UK, with over 420 channels available in the top-tier packages. This includes a great selection of HD channels and 3D channels – along with the exclusive Sky Atlantic.

                            Bundle broadband with TV and phone

                            Virgin Media and Sky let you bundle their services, which involves taking more than one telecoms service from a single provider. This is often a cheaper alternative to splitting services between multiple providers.

                            Pros & cons

                            Pros

                            • Fast broadband with Virgin Media
                            • Loads of TV channels with Sky
                            • Bundles available from both providers

                            Cons

                            • Availability may be an issue
                            • Can be an expensive option
                            • Uploads managed on Virgin Media broadband

                            Which provider is right for me?

                            Both providers have their good and bad points. The one you choose will depend on what matters most to you. For instance…

                            Sky is great for telly addicts

                            With hundreds of channels – both HD and SD – and the hi-tech Sky Q box for multiple recordings, Sky presents a great option for TV lovers. It even has the much-touted Sky Atlantic for all the latest shows from across the pond. Its broadband service is truly unlimited and it has several low-priced phone options.

                            Virgin Media is the ideal choice for heavy downloaders

                            With download speeds of up to 350Mbps, streaming HD video and music is no problem for customers with Virgin Media broadband. Virgin Media’s TV service isn’t to be sniffed at either, with hundreds of channels and a wide variety of content (though not as much as Sky). The V6 box comes with Virgin Media TV packages, and lets you record six channels at once.

                            What will I need?

                            There are a couple of things you’ll need to take into consideration before you switch to either Virgin Media or Sky.

                            You need to be in a Virgin Media area to join Virgin

                            Virgin Media relies on its own broadband and cable network. While this means the provider is in full control of its own network, it also means that availability is different from that of other providers. Use our availability checker at the top of the page to see if you can get it in your area.

                            A satellite dish must be installed to join Sky

                            To join Sky TV, you need to have a south-facing satellite dish installed on your property. If you’re renting, you’ll need permission from your landlord. If you’re in a listed building, you may have to get written permission from the local council. Sky broadband is widely available, but its fibre optic service has more limited availability. Again, our availability checker can tell you exactly what you can get.

                            How do I switch?

                            You’ve looked through our compare page. You’ve picked your deal. You’re all ready to go ahead, but one question remains – how do you switch?

                            Choose the right deal

                            Once you’ve chosen your perfect deal, simply click on the blue ‘see deal’ button to the right of the package. This will take you to the provider’s website. Here, you can fill in your information and purchase the package included in the deal. You can even add extra bits and pieces, such as Sky Sports or Sky Cinema. Once you’ve finalised your deal and purchased your new package, it’s on to the next section.

                            You may need to contact your old provider to cancel

                            If you’re switching to or from a Virgin Media service, you will need to contact your current provider to cancel your existing services. If you’re switching to Sky from a non-Virgin Media service, such as BT or TalkTalk, there’s no need to contact your old provider; Sky will handle that for you.

                            Watch out for termination fees

                            You need to be wary of one little snag. If you’re still within contract with your previous provider, you’ll have to pay termination fees to cancel. This can be quite expensive, especially if you’re only a couple of months into your contract. If this is the case, it may be wise to hold on until your contract expires. It might be an irritation, but it’ll save you being hit with a big bill.

                            Six essential questions before you buy

                            1. Can I commit to a contract?
                            2. Can I get broadband, TV and phone where I am?
                            3. Should I bundle services?
                            4. Do I want fibre or standard broadband?
                            5. Do I want hundreds of TV channels?
                            6. How much can I afford?

                            Cable.co.uk recommends

                            Fast download speeds are ideal for frequent downloaders and movie streamers. But if that’s not you, then you could be better off settling for a slower, standard broadband package. The same goes for TV. Hundreds of channels are lovely, and present a great range of choice for those long nights at home in front of the fire. But do you really need so many? Comparing what you realistically need against what’s available will save you from paying for services you’re not using.
