Yet another customer with a Netflix activation issue

Joining in

Hi all,

Im a recent Ultimate Volt bundle customer, got Virgin installed on Nov 4th and been unable to activate my free Netflix.

When I click on the link in the email I received saying I still hadnt activated it (ironic..) I get an error message, and when I log into my Vrgin account and go to "Entertainment Services" and click on Netflix, I get this:


And then after a few seconds, this :


Can any admin help ?

I have a current Netflix account I want to cancel, but am unwilling to do so until I get this up and running.

Many thanks

Can take 2 to 3 days for a staff member to get to your post from the date/time of the last entry. So bumping posts just gets you to the end of the queue. I doubt if anyone else can answer your question. This is not the prime point for contacting VM, that’s the telephone to customer services.

There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary and those who don't and F people out of 10 who do not understand hexadecimal c1a2a285948293859940d9a49385a2

Hey S_and_G_Murphy, thank you for reaching out and a warm welcome to the community I am so sorry to hear about this.

Have you tried to activate this link on another device or browser at all? 

Does it always come back with this error? Cheers

Having dealt with the staff at the end of the telephone, many, many times, surely you would understand that is exactly why I had put my post on a forum.........

Hi there

Thanks for coming back to us - some of our customers will come to the forums as a first point of contact, so we need to ensure we are going through the basics and all troubleshooting steps to cover all bases. I am sorry that you've had a hard time trying to get some help with this.

I've popped you over a private message so I can assist you further.

Hi, i resolved the issue myself in the end thankfully.

What was causing Netflix to "fall over" was that my own actual Netflix account had the same login name and password as my new Virgin Media account, so once I changed my "original" Netflix details, the new account free from Virgin worked fine, and I have cancelled my original account.

Hi @S_and_G_Murphy

Thank you for the update on this. I'm glad to hear that this has now been resolved for you.

Please do let us know if there's anything more that we can help you with.
