Extra Channels free this weekend?

Weve been with Virgin for over 18 months now and never experienced an issue like it, however, without prompting for a call to upgrade or request for PIN our Tivo box appears to have extra channels all of a sudden (Nickelodeon, Nick Jr, Cartoonito to name a few)

Has anyone else noticed this? Just worried about being overcharged when we never asked for or agreed to an upgrade?

Many thanks,

Re: Extra Channels free this weekend?

Yes i too got the free channels on the phone to them. Check your last months bill out. They have added Racing subscription to mind without my knowledge. 

This is the second time they have randomly added channels to my Billing cycle. Have had enough to me..
