I got Virgin through a 'friend' today.

37 for...

unlimited local phone calls (day and night)
cheap rate to mobiles + international
XL TV package (all channels)
Virgin + HD box
Virgin HD box (extra for bedroom)
30mb broadband (with top rated modem)
Free installation

Well happy.

May add the 3 extra (+ purchase cost) for TiVo at a later date.

Well done. Some of us mugs have been paying 100 for fewer services and can't even get a refund for a problem that has not been fixed for 39 months.

These mates rates deals take the piss.

Ridboy, are you getting yours on mates rates?

Madness. I watch about 5 hours of TV a week, just not worth it for me.

Edit, I probably watch about 10 hours in reality.

I have the XL package, and it's 60 JUST FOR THE TELLY No phone or Broadband. Everyone says it's wrong but I think it's the correct price. I must check it sometime

It's a damn site better than V+. Liking the Indexing, like an actor you can record everything he's in. Only really getting started with it now a couple of weeks in. Flickr galleries are nice and the YouTube stuff is cool.

And on demand, is it Sky only or can you get normal on demand services?

I am really struggling to resist moving over to virgin, do they have Atlantic yet?

They will never have atlantic

They do however have iplayer, 4OD, ITV player as well as every show aired in the last 7 days and an on demand library that by all accounts beats the craptacular sky anytime

I will be moving

They do not seem to promote the OD heavily on the site. A tip when you look around the site they do a postcode check, a few days later you get a mailshot with a few decent deals, free multiroom seemed appealing.

Sky are offering me a free HD box upgrade, with Anytime+ ethernet BUT it looks like I would have to use their broadband, which is a bit crap.
