No access to channels

I’ve recently joined and had my broadband, phone & TV installed. Everything is working fine apart from the tv..

When we go onto the television, all channels say press OK to subscribe and have a circle with a line going through it on the screen. I have the 360 box with the Mixit TV package but can’t access anything. Attached pics below. 

I’ve contacted Virgin twice now to be told that it can take up to 48 hours for the services to come on however it’s been over 48 hours and nothing has happened. I called again but they can’t seem to find a fault on their side and said that everything is live even though it isn’t. 

I’ve restarted the box numerous times, turned everything off, reset etc followed all the steps that have been given for this to still not be working. 

Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and can help out at all? 





The installer should have left the service working and it does not take 48 hours for a new install - take it they are fobbing you off as the call centre don't want to pass the call on.

Phone them back and request cancellations as your service does not work  -  they'll rush to fix it then.

And to add to ozsat's comments, offer to use the 14day cooling off period to have your services cancelled.

That should focus CS' minds and get them to either resolve the issue remotely, or arrange a tech visit if necessary. Don't terminate the call without either an appointment time or your service working.

Thanks for the response both. 

We’ve got a technician coming out tomorrow to look at it so fingers crossed the issue gets sorted. Just very annoying!
