Hello everyone . I wonder if anyone could tell me if I could change my XL to M and keep all the sky sports channels and BT sport. Cost? Also is it possible to get rid of your phone line and still get virgin broadband? Rang yesterday and spoke to a not very helpful customer services person. All he could do was get rid of our movies to get the price down. We were currently paying approx £150 for everything. Have a TiVo box and 3 other boxes. Got it down to £107 having the movies removed. Stil too high!!! We have no aerial or we could have free view as all our TVs have them so frustrating!
I cancelled yesterday, took me 45mins as they kept putting me on hold. I've now got a pretty decent deal with Sky with a fixed fee for 12mths £40, no hidden charges and only £10 set up.(friends and family code I found)
I had to negotiate a bit, but they seemed very keen for business (that sales for you). All the VS retentions team would do is tell me how bad Sky broadband service is. The irony was that Virgin retentions person was a Sky customer talking from their experience!! Seems even Virgins own staff don't even get great deals or perks to use and help sell product.
In 12mths, I'll probably be back with Virgin on a good new customer deal and their new product.
Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you here involved in the Community
I'm really sorry to hear the team weren't able to get the package down in price to something more suitable. Rather that advising you want to save money, tell the team what you want just as you've done above. We can take a look at how much this will cost and work around things that way.
Give the team another try and let us know how it goes.
