Can you link to that website - it will be of interest to others as they've been told it is only free for new customers.

Sky UHD: Sky Cinema and Sky Entertainment UHD: £6 a month for existing customers of Maxit/Fullhouse/Bigger Bundle/Ultimate Oomph packages. 30 days’ notice required to remove Sky Cinema and Sky Entertainment UHD pick. Prices may increase at any time during the contract.

that’s the only info I can see about Sky UHD and it clearly shows existing customers pay

First that isn't a Virgin Media website and second the article states "some" customers will get it for free.

Re: Oomph bundle getting charged for sky ultra hd

Your first post in this thread mentioned "the Virgin website", The Express newspaper isn't that.

If there's any inaccuracies in that article, you'll need to take them up with The Express!! As others have already said - the UHD add-on is only "included" in the UO bundle for brand-new customers. Existing customers renegotiating for 18months can likely get it packaged into their new price if you ask as part of the bundle deal.

Not at all - all the VM staff who post on here identify themselves as such.

Re: Oomph bundle getting charged for sky ultra hd

I don't think the express were the only ones taken in by virgins clever marketing announcements, not only on this but also making the 360 mini boxes sound like they don't need a cable connection.

The unfortunate thing is they have left themselves with 2 tiers of ultimate oomph, 1 with UHD and 1 without, will this be increased to 3 tiers if and when Sky Sports UHD becomes available.
