I have received an email to say that Virgin media have suspended my Netflix because they couldn't take my subscription. The result of this is that Netflix are charging my personal credit card for the service and I am still paying my normal monthly subscription to VM meaning I am paying twice.
Nothing has changed from my end and VM technical support do not appear to know how to fix the problem. This has been going on for a couple of weeks with no resolution in sight. The latest suggestion from technical support was for me to pay for Netflix myself, when I reminded them that this was part of my package they had no answer.
Any suggestion as to how to resolve this would be appreciated.
Absolutely shocking service from VM. No communication whatsoever about this apart from the forum team on here. An IT ticket was apparently raised but still no response 3 weeks later. June bill at least is not charging for Netflix but no refund for May🤷🏻♀️ I just find it incredibly poor customer service that VM cannot even manage to send an email to explain the situation. My VM subscription ends in July so am looking for an alternative provider that offers transparency and better customer service.
Complaint raised 3 weeks ago as I couldn't understand how Virgin had the right to cancel a third party subscription without my say so. Bills paid on time and no need for it. IT incident raised as the VM answer was to hit the "activate" button which I couldn't see and infact couldn't see much from any link as I had a lot of issues with their pages loading.
More disturbed by the suggestion to resolve my issues they could add Netflix again by adding it to a new package which would double my monthly payment. I do not see that as resolution to an issue VM made. Poor service.
Got the cancellation email from Netflix 15th May, was told 3-5 days on phone, then made a complaint online, here's the reply to that from Virgin,

In plain terms.. nothing to do with us ! ...don't hold your breath for the mythical purple activate button folks ! Not been charged for it on latest bill so more or less decided to do without Netflix and just watch Prime.
It's happened again. Netflix subscription has been stopped. I am guessing I will lose more time. Think this may be it.......had enough of this. Happened in may, had to restart my Netflix, now what? Have to restart again?
