Morning Pdeleon17,

Thanks for posting and welcome to our community 🙂

Sorry to hear you're having some issues setting up your online account. Can you confirm if you've had a My Virgin Media account at a previous address at all? Have you tried registering with an alternative email address?


Thanks for the reply Alex.

Nope this will be first time setting up my virgin media account.

will try registering through an alternative email address. Please can you confirm whether emails causes an issue I.e Gmail

Many thanks 

Thanks for confirming, when setting up a password try the following criteria- No special characters, only letters and numbers, MUST begin with a letter, try keeping it between 8-10 characters.

Using Gmail addresses etc shouldn't cause any problems.


Thanks -  yup tried all the above and it still doesnt work.
