What are my options for reducing

Currently we are on

  • TV              Full House
  • Broadband M150
  • Landline     Talkmore Anytime

We need to reduce our bills

Could we have for example

  • Broadband only or
  • Broadband and Landline

And how much would it cost?

There does not seem to be guidance on the web site.

Does anyone know?

Seems to me that I could go to some one else for the broadband and landline  for about a quarter of what I am paying  and get a Freesat aerial and PVR for not  a lot less than three or four monthly bills.

When was the last time you renegotiated with VM?

Thanks but forewarned is forearmed and I was hoping to see some options before ringing the call centre.

Pity VM don't have a page where you could adjust your services and see what it will cost.

You can use https://store.virginmedia.com/build-your-bundle to get a pretty good idea. Just enter any address that "can" get VM, and choose the option for "I'm new to Virgin and moving here" if necessary.

Re: What are my options for reducing

Just to close this off

I checked the store as suggested, got an appointment for a Freesat dish and researched Freesat boxes with PVR

Then I rang VM and told them I wanted to change my packages.

I reduced landline to Weekends only which is the minimum, and Broadband to M100 

This more than halved the bill, but then for very little more  the very helpful lady suggested I get Mixit TV which is the Freeview Channels for I think £4 extra.

So for half of what I was paying I get basically what we need. Wish i had done it earlier.

So no need for dishso cancelled appointment,  or for Freesat box and I can keep my Tivo box and record programs.

Win-Win
