Where is an up to date list of the boxsets

I have upgraded as i was told that certain series were in the Boxsets range. I tried to watch Breaking Bad, but it goes through my Netflix account.

I want to cancel my Netflix account to save money, this is why i opted for the upgrade - was i lied to?

This list is more or less the same as Virgin - excluding Sky Atlantic and ITV Encore.

Thanks - no Virgin list then?
I suppose this means they can chop and change as they wish?

Re: Where is an up to date list of the boxsets

Virgin Media's On Demand content is not connected to Now TV, Sky TV or any other provider. So what Box Sets available can be different to other providers.

So from time to time you may find that content is available on multiple sources e.g. iPlayer / Virgin On Demand / Netflix, and then one or more of these sources may stop having that content.

Netflix?
I don't want to have to keep paying for a 3rd party service when I was told this was all-singing and all-dancing?
There should be a place that lists what's on offer otherwise how do I know that I'm not being duped?

What's on offer is what is in the On Demand menus. They show what is available from Virgin Media.

Other parts of TiVo, for instance if you search for a show, may pull in shows that are only available from Netflix. This will be clear as the Netflix logo will be the only source shown.

They tend to follow the same expiry dates as Now TV.  As an example, The Walking Dead seasons 1-6 will expire on 31st March on Virgin as well as Now TV.

There are some additional exclusive box sets on Virgin such as the US Office (rendered unwatchable by random 319 errors) but if it is on the Now TV list it is on Virgin bar the Sky Atlantic and ITV Encore shows (there may be other channels not on Virgin, but most likely the kids ones).

PS Wayward Pines expires on 1st March 2017, so if you have managed to stick with it, then you have less than a week to finish watching it all.

Re: Where is an up to date list of the boxsets

Surely Virgin themselves can give me a list?
Or do they not know which programmes they have control of - I was lied to when I signed up!
