The forum team have tried their hardest but I expect no further help here - I will keep updating this thread to let other people know how the complaint goes and if someone is actually going to do something about this. Nothing against you or anyone who has tried to help me here.
Something has changed. It's still completely broken, and there's still no rush to help, but I have had it say "Loading" quite a few times in the last week. It still errors out with the same accursed message but it actually looks like it's thinking about it. It looks to me like Sky isn't reading my Virgin details, which I have said all along. It did work last Sunday but I haven't got it work since and I can't today either, another day of the Ashes lost.
I now need to make a complaint about the complaint.
I raised my original complaint on the 19th August. It's now the 15th September. I accept there may be some kind of wait in a company of Virgin Media's size but nearly a month for a complaint to be handled? This is very poor service.
Thanks for your response. Today is day 27. Tomorrow will be day 28. Unless there's going to be a response some time today (which there won't be because it's a Sunday) then my point stands and I'd like this escalated, even if it's tomorrow that you have to do it.
Again, I reject that resolution. I have spoken to Sky who have sent me to Virgin. And as a Virgin customer I expect Virgin to stand up for me. I STILL don't have an answer to a question I asked on this forum 2 months ago because Virgin don't care enough about my issue.
I frankly feel as though this is being treated with zero priority and it is most discourteous. I don't want to speak to anybody on the phone, I requested email contact and I expect email contact which to be fair you're not to know.
Can you please confirm if someone from the forum team can access the complaint details? If not then I'm just going to go straight to the resolver because I'm frankly fed up of this. This has been going on for 9 months. Feel free to blame the developer of the app - I don't pay them, I pay Virgin and Virgin need to up their game and do something to try and help me instead of just ignoring me.
Virgin's attitude in general to the Sky Player problems is totally out of order. If their stance is that it is Sky's player and Sky's problem, then they should stop advertising the function as a feature of their packages, but of course they won't as then people would be put off signing up. If they are advertising it as a feature then the least they can do is act as a go-between and sort it out, or take it off their package.
I think a complaint to OFCOM by multiple people could be the only course of action.
