Joining and Leaving Virgin

Hi all,

 

I've been with Virgin for about 2 years now, but I'm thinking of going back to Sky to get more channels since Virgin have lost a couple (and don't have Atlantic). If I were to leave and think I made the wrong choice, how long would I need to wait to come back to Virgin?

You don't have to leave Virgin Media. One option is to buy a NOW TV Smart Stick for £20 and subscribe to the NOW TV Entertainment Pass which costs £7.99pm which gives you 11 live channels including Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Living, FOX, MTV and Vice.

Seconded - its what I do for specific programmes like Game of Thrones and True Detective.  Another thing is that you don't need to keep the subscription going once the "good" programmes stop - you can just buy monthly passes (also get them on eBay) to whatch in "bursts".  I use a smart "box" though - the latest one has an port for more stable ethernet connection.

I have to say that I'm surprised that John Lewis is selling the NOW TV Smart Box with 4K and Voice Search for £29.99. However, it still streams its HD content at 720p I believe.
