Cost of TV service

Why is the basic package so expensive and not as good as freeview ? my basic package is very basic it gives me loads of channels all with the same programs on it? 
It takes forever to switch to bbc iplayer and back again . Catch up tv is rubbish to use and sometimes stops for no reason. Everytime i pay my bill i question what am i paying for !!!!

Re: Cost of TV service

The 'basic' TV service from Virgin Media, now called Player TV, previously M TV, is not expensive as it is nominally free, included in the price of your other two services.

If you don't value this service then remove it - it won't save you any money. You can then rely on Freeview, for which you will need an external aerial connection, or Freesat, which needs a satellite dish connection.

There is no requirement for these three free services to have the same set of channels.
