The comments about the missing follow up email from VM are well made.
Having responded to the initial invitation email, I did receive a second email within 24 hours but this was solely about the change of contract. There were no instructions about how to activate the change at the Netflix end.
That's why we tried the sign out, sign back in again technique on the TV box. That procedure led to the activation screen being shown which then triggered the changes at the Netflix end.
Just wonder if anyone could reproduce this unicorn 2nd email, the one after this...

i signed upto the ultimate volt bundle 30th march and it says Netflix included.. i clicked the activate link on myvirginmedia, created a netflix standard account and it said billing would be done via Virgin Media... I thought this would be discounted down in the billing.. But when i look at my billing overview theres a charge on there for £10.99.. Will this be discounted when the actual bill is generated??
Also, when i signed upto the package the whatsapp agent who sorted it out said there was a £150 bill credit ( or the google nest) , but when i look at the bill overview the only credit i see is the £25 for a missed appointment... would someone be able to take a look at this for me please?
Much the same here: I signed up to Ultimate Volt on March 31st, VM part of the contract starting and installed yesterday (14h Apr) but no mention or e-mail regarding the Google Nest or how to get Netflix - which were included in the deal. Totally unclear about how or who to help clear this up. The O2 part started more or less immediately once they sent me a sim.
