My contract was due to be re-contracted which I’ve done today. I have the broadband, tv and phone weekend package - I have the mix it tv, broadband (was 100mbp, now changed to 200mbp) and weekend phone call package.
i asked the virgin staff member if I could receive the TV360 remote so that I could be able to have the software update to the TV360 and I was told NO I wasn’t allowed it or able to get it unless I took out the Max it package (full package at £79 pm).
I kept asking why not as I have been a loyal customer for a number of years, but it fell on deaf ears sadly. I’ve tried checked online tonight on the virgin media website but when I hit the tv360 upgrade button the request shows - bad request on page. But I’ve typed in the query into the internet search engine and I can see answers on virgins own pages that says I could get the remote control for £24.95, but if I have the V6 box and if I re-contract then I would get the remote free of charge. Bearing this now in mind can I ask why I wasn’t told this information? Why was I not given the offer considering I was asking for it? Can someone please provide me with the correct information as I’ve seen articles online from virgin media chief executives in 2021 who confirmed that V6 customers were entitled to get the remote and they stated what I’ve written above about the initial charge and then how it would become free when customers re-contracted, and they also said at a point in time all existing customers would be entitled to both the TV360 box and the TV360 remote control.
Thank you for your help in advance.
