What can I get from Virgin Media TV?

Virgin Media TV and broadband bundles pair impressively fast fibre with a very extensive range of sport, movies and lifestyle channels and the well reviewed Virgin TV 360 set top box.

Depending on your needs and availability at your address, you can pick from broadband packages that offer speeds of 108Mbps, 362Mbps or 630Mbps.

Virgin Media's core TV and broadband packages are dubbed ‘Big bundles’ and ‘Bigger bundles’. All of which come with the Virgin TV 360 box and the option to add a Mini Box, so you can stream TV on multiple screens around the home and pause shows and continue watching them in another room seamlessly.

All Big bundles and Bigger bundles are available with or without a landline. If you choose to take one, you’ll also get weekend calls.

You can also sign up for Virgin Media calls Volt bundles, which are more expensive but get you faster speeds and a mobile SIM plan from O2.

These also include a Virgin TV 360 box and the option to add a Mini Box.

Volt bundles include an O2 SIM card with unlimited data too, as well as a landline with weekend calls.

What are the alternatives to Virgin Media TV?

You can get comparable TV and broadband bundles from the household-name providers, such as Sky,Now Broadband, EE and BT. But how do they compare? 

Now Broadband or EE TV are cheaper and are really a good bet if you’re looking to keep your costs down. Now Broadband TV bundles are also notably flexible, because you’re able to add themed TV passes and cancel whenever you like with 30 days’ notice.

BT and Sky's TV packages are priced broadly in line with Virgin Media, and offer a similar array of content to choose from.

It's also worth noting that BT’s YouView set top box isn’t anything like as advanced as Virgin Media’s TV 360 box. And unlike Sky’s Q box or Virgin Media’s effort, doesn’t support pause-and-pick-up functionality when you get a multi-room package.

Frequently asked questions

How do I switch to Virgin Media?

Switching to Virgin Media is a bit more complicated than the process for most switches between the likes of BT, Sky or TalkTalk. But it’s still pretty straightforward. You just need to follow these steps..

  1. Choose a Virgin Media package and sign up for it through MoneySuperMarket
  2. Contact your current provider to tell them you’d like to cancel and nominate a day you’d like them to turn off your services
  3. Contact Virgin Media and arrange for your service to start the same day. That way you’ll get a seamless switchover and you won’t be without a broadband connection at any time.

Can I watch Netflix on Virgin Media?

You can. There’s a Netflix app installed on the older V6 box and the latest Virgin 360 box, which lets you watch Netflix on demand. You can also pay for Netflix as part of your Virgin Media bill, so it’s more convenient and easier to keep track of your outgoings.
