Virgin Media launch Google Smart Home trial

VM google-smart-home-trial 

  • Virgin Media trials a new range of Google Nest Smart Home packages that will work seamlessly alongside its ultrafast broadband
  • Expert installation and tech support available to ensure smart home devices work seamlessly
  • Virgin Media customers in Cardiff, Manchester and Southampton will be the first to trial the new service
  • Devices available on flexible payment plans starting at just £10 per month

Virgin Media Smart Home bundles with inclusive tech support

As part of Virgin Media’s Smart Home trial, three different bundles are available:

  • Smart Home (£10 p/m on a 36 month contract or £20 p/m on an 18 month contract)

Includes Nest Hello Doorbell and Nest Hub (7 inch screen)

  • Smart Home Pro (£21 p/m on a 36 months contract or £42p/m on an 18 month contract)

Includes Nest Hello Doorbell, Nest Hub Max (10 inch screen, 6.5MP camera), Nest Indoor Cam and Nest Outdoor Cam

  • Smart Home Pro Max (£28 p/m on a 36 months contract or £56p/m on an 18 month contract)

Includes Nest Hello Doorbell, Nest Hub Max (10 inch screen, 6.5MP camera), 2 x Nest Indoor Cam, 2 x Nest Outdoor Cam

Customers that sign up for any of the Smart Home bundles will benefit from expert installation from a trained Virgin Media engineer who will help install and set up the products quickly and easily. They will also be able to rely on a dedicated tech support team which is just a call away from providing help to resolve any issues.  

Eligible Virgin Media customers in Cardiff, Manchester and Southampton will receive an email with more information on how to sign up to the service.

Customers in Ireland have had the option of subscribing to the smart home package since October 2019.

Re: Virgin Media launch Google Smart Home trial

are they planning on using a different hub then? as none of the current virgin hub would cope with that sort of equipment reliably.

Re: Virgin Media launch Google Smart Home trial

Would never touch any Google equipment with a barge poll. They are renowned for disconnecting products or facilities, just check on some of the facilities recently removed from the Nest range.

Just much quicker to junk their customer's equipment.

Re: Virgin Media launch Google Smart Home trial

@spgray I've questioned that BQM before, but it continues to get worse.  Are you/VM intentionally making it a work of great horror as we approach Halloween?
