Is someone else using my service?

Just had my stats email from Virgin and found that we were in the top 20% of sports users.

We don't watch any sport at all.

Could someone else have access to our TV service?  We've put a strong password to our router itself, so that should be difficult to access, but this isn't a broadband issue.

Anybody have any ideas?

Many thanks

Re: Is someone else using my service?

I don't think there's anything sinister here - some months I get told under the "sport" section that I've watched more football than anything else. Clearly total nonsense - I genuinely can't stand the "game"!! I've got a few theories as to why it might happen, but life's too short to care too much.

As for your router theory - that's irrelevant. Live TV doesn't use the internet, so you're worrying about nothing there.

VM obviously use anonymised usage stats to put together these emails, but I'd recommend you file this email appropriately and move on...
