Re: V6 Upgrade

I doubt Sky or BT will ever give up their 4K content.  At the moment we may just have to be happy that we have a very responsive box!

Re: V6 Upgrade

Perhaps Liberty Media who owns VM and the network that produces the Discovery channels could create a Discovery 4K channel which shows the best programmes from all its channels in 4K.

Re: V6 Upgrade

last week i was told couldnt get a v6 upgrade by one online adviser then second said i could but had to pay 65 quid, not once did they attempt to tell me that in just a week that customers who upgraded package were going to be given option of a v6 box lol, nor did they mention the new faster vivid300 broadband pack now available to some customers lol.

there is a way round the virgin silly terms for customers to get a v6 as part of their pack inbox for details of how so ong as virgin dont stop this by time contact me lol

Re: V6 Upgrade

Thanks for the update, let me know if this works and you actually do get a V6 free and upgrade to 300 vivid.

 

ive looked on the V6 website but cannot find anything out about 300 vivid.

Re: V6 Upgrade

I can't find anything about upgrades to vivid 300 and free upgrades to a V6 box either. I have just checked my offers (on my account) and nothing their either. In fact it used to offer me V6 upgrades for £65 but there is no mention of this now.

As per previous poster, let us know how you get on and if anyone does find the information on the VM website please post a link.

Re: V6 Upgrade

Vivid 300 is a business package I thought?

You're behind the times. The product range is now 100, 200, 200 Gamer and 300.

Re: V6 Upgrade

no i didnt find anything about the vivid300 either and when online with an adviser was told couldn't have it lmao...

to this i simply said i dont want it the vivid300 has a pretty steep price hike that goes with the extra speed lol so id rather have the homework's package instead... vivid300 gives an speed hike and means 12 month contract signing....(bollx to that) homework's for customers gives so much more and the same up to 300 speed lol all for the nice and rosey price of 9.99 per month and only have to take it for 3 months then can cancel and re add at you will lol... hmm vivid300 or homework's...... tough choice lol...

as for the v6box  y attempt to circumvent the extra high silly activation fee was quickly caught by the sales team lol... saying that at the present time there is no way to get around that cost... which i thought a little strange as idjust read on the virgin news and upgade part of site that v6 box was being made available to existing customers when upgrading package and committing to new 12 month deal lol... this was on same page as vivid300 speed details...

ive now realised i was a little to much of a smart ass and tried for the deal too early as they have not yet implemented the new deals and ex customer packges lol... so as i signed off the online web chat was told and i quote...: new deals are added all the time so if check back in few days the upgrade i wanted may be available.... rofl or in our language its coming soon but its not here yet lol try again soon.

wouldnt mind i was actually doing a decent upgrade too lol am on xl tv 200 fibre and talk weekends at 76 pm the homeworks add on at 9.99 and was even willing to add sky cinema at 20 pm too (so long as was getting a v6 for the 14.99 activation) so monthly total would have been increased to 106 per month, for a company that is supposed to be for the customers and to make profit you would think that for the same of 49.99 discount they would have jumped at the extra 30 quid a month lol especially as ive been with them 2 yrs at current address and never missed a payment lol....

the story goes on as soon as i get the nod for new deals for us LOYAL EXISTING CUSTOMERS.....or how shall we say the mugs who keep lining their pockets every month lol 

will update when i know more guys if we stick together and keep in touch the day will come when we get v6 for a price we deserve if not then time to leave get a diff et prov and buy a sky box with one of those gift cards lmfao
