  1. Press Home on your remote
  2. Select Help & Settings
  3. Select Help
  4. Select TV Care from the top bar
  5. Select Missing channels
  6. Select Refresh my channel list to check for missing channels, and to get your TiVo box automatically updated if they are missing

Wait 15 minutes, restart Tivo.

Apparently that works....

Didn't get an e.mail but pleasantly surprised to be getting it though. Tried contacting support centre but as usual taking ages to get through and get an answer.

Re: Free sky sports for 6 weeks?

I got the same e-mail, looks legit.

 

But it says they've already put it active on my account, but the channels are still greyed out.

 

 

Spoiler

Hello,

 

Get in there – we’ve specially handpicked you to enjoy Sky Sports at no extra cost, from today and for the next 6 weeks.

We’ve already added the Sky Sports channels to your line-up, so the only finger you’ll need to lift is the one that finds ‘sport’ on your Virgin TV box. You won’t be charged a penny to watch these extra channels, and if you don’t want the channels at the end of the 6 weeks, they’ll automatically come off your package.

So you can make the most of the first fixtures of the New Year, we’ll email soon with more details about your Sky Sports freebie. How’s that for a strong start to 2017.

Happy New Year!

 

Kind regards,

The Virgin Media team

Still no access.

Was this some kind of con, because the email gives no indication of being anything other than legit.

No email here nor channels (but I don't mind the way VM is atm) may charge you after its ended and keep it on your package since there is zero communication between various areas.

Oh I see what the problem is, I didn't scroll down past the HD channels, it's only the SD sports channels we get free lol.
