Racing UK

Why do Virgin subscribers who pay full, price not get Racing UK HD or access to "Racing UK anywhere". Of course can't access on the move with Virgin Anywhere bemuse that only works with Wifi, not mobile data. Thinking its time to move to Sky, to get the service I pay for !

Re: Racing UK

No supplier has the same set of channels as any other supplier.

It is up to us all to decide which suits best. There will always be something which your supplier doesn't have.

Sounds like you made a poor choice, given those things which you suggest are important to you.

Time to change if watching the horses in HD or on your mobile data is important to you.

Re: Racing UK

Racing UK is a premium channel on both Virgin (£22 per month) & Sky (£24.98 a month). The service is not included with the normal packs, as Racing UK's owners will not allow the channel to be sold that way. As you can see, the channel is cheaper on Virgin than on Sky, so why shoot yourself in the foot & change to a platform that charges more for it?

Re: Racing UK

Not sure if Sky have any exclusivity deal going over the HD version, but move if you feel you must. Wouldn't touch Sky with a barge pole, the way they rip off customers who try to leave has been all over the national papers recently.

Re: Racing UK

With Virgin you can get Racing UK Anywhere with the Virgin TV Anywhere App and maybe their online portal
