Free TiVo for existing customers

Is there anyway to get TiVo free if you are an existing customer? It either seems to be free installation but £49.95 for activation or vice versa. Threatening to leave seems to be the most common answer from previous posts!

hi

 

the only way to get this resolved and answerd is to ring customer retentions on 150 (free from a vm landline) option 5,2 or alternatively you can ring 08454541111 (lo call rates may apply)

 

it is free install and free activation for the 500gb tivo but the 1tb tivo there is a fee of £49.95

That' just says free activation not free installation.

Re: Free TiVo for existing customers

My neighbour has just come out of contract after a year with Virgin, and was not on a great deal. He had a single VHD box, phone and 10meg BB paying about 45 month.

 

I told him to call retentions, and they just gave him a free TIVO as the main box, upgraded him to the SHUB and upped his BB to 30meg, and reduced his bil by £4 a month and no installation charge.

 

Just call them, you might be surprised.
