Great news about the price rise

Apparently the price is worth it, for the additional £3.49 a month VM are renaming our packages and throwing in some extra channels already available on Freeview to make the price increase even more worthwhile.

They have also "made the menus simpler and easier to browse" or, to put it another way, they have slowed down the box so much that you can read the menus while you are waiting for the box to do something.

Read and weep

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Also what wasn't mentioned with the launch of the additional Sony film channels (Movie Mix & Movies 4 Men) & POP, is that they are on a profit share agreement.

This means that while being on Freeview DTT, the equivalent package on Virgin (M) still doesn't carry them. They are only available on M+ packs upward. The only additions to M so far is Spike & 5STAR+1.

Re: Great news about the price rise

The price rise means VM which were always cheaper than Sky will be slightly dearer for me and the new box is likely to push the cost up still further. Needless to say VM have pushed it just a bit too far for me.
