Re: Cancel TV

Virgin TV is a paid service only. If you cancel it, then the Virgin TV box will stop working completely.

So you'll need to connect your TV to a roof aerial or other method of receiving TV channels.

Re: Cancel TV

You can also downgrade to "Player TV" which has a very similar channel line-up to Freeview. This will mean re-contracting for another 12 months. Ring up 150 and use the option for "thinking of leaving us" as this is the UK based customer service team who are best placed to help.

Re: Cancel TV

Hi Banger276, 

 

Thanks for your post Smiley Happy

 

When you cancel the services, the signal coming in to the house will go off so all that will appear on the screen will be an error message. 

 

The box will more than likely have to be returned to us as well. 

 

Is there any reason why you were looking at cancel? 

 

Come back and let us know.

 

Thanks,

Re: Cancel TV

HI Banger276

 

Thanks for getting back to us, if you're still looking at doing this I'd recommend giving our team a call on 150 from any Virgin line or 0345 454 1111 from any other so we can clear security to clear security and discuss your specific available deals that don't have TV service. 

 

We'd love to hear how you get on and we'll be here should there be anything we can assist with moving forward.

 

Take care

Craig
