I noticed this a couple days ago but I just decided to leave it and wait as I assumed that it was just a temporary outage of service which can happen from time to time. I then saw the service status update acknowledging there is a fault which as now disappeared but the problem is still there.
It's now Sunday and I still cannot log into TV Go? I know that my username & password combination is correct as it logs me into the main VM site.
When attempting to log in to watch TV content that we pay £80+ a month for, we're greeted with either "log in with the main account" or "login failure"...
As a person that works in IT, it's clear that there is an authentication error occurring here within the infrastructure as I can see in the URL the parameter "?success" which indicates that the details provided are recognised.
This isn't something I would expect from a large corporation such as Virgin Media?
Nevertheless, please can this be escalated to 2nd/3rd line support. There's no point asking me to "uninstall/reinstall", "change my password and see" etc. as this will not solve the issue. It's purely an issue on your side, nothing to do with the client.
Same problem, ongoing since yesterday (first time I've used TV Go for months). It actually logged in and worked once--but only once. Many 10's... 20's... 30 's of attempts to login, most leading to a warning that I should be using the primary account, some telling me the service isn't working right now. I am using my Primary account, so that isn't a valid error.
I have tried a mixture of re-installing the Win10 app, using a web browser (Chrome) and executing the password reset process to set a new password--with no success.
Any idea when this is expected to be fixed: is this a long term issue, as someone seemed to suggest on these forums?
Thanks for reaching out to us in our community, I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with TV Go showing this is a sub account, we are aware of this and we are currently working hard to get this resolved ASAP,
Please can we stop with the holding message/replies and actually escalate the issue to the appropriate people who (should) know how to solve this issue?
Seems like a waste of time to privately message like this is an isolated incident with a handful of accounts when this is obviously a wide-scale issue judging by the amount of posts on this board and on social media.
People will message privately only to wait a couple days for another holding response or request for further details which have nothing to do with the root cause.
There's CLEARLY an issue here affecting hundreds (possibly thousands), just contact the relevant team/department and sort it out please.
