Sky Sports UHD upgrade woes

Joining in

Just got off the phone to Virgin earlier to add UHD Sky Sports. We’ve currently got the Ultimate Volt Package which is in contract till October. I’d seen on their website it would be £7 per month which i was prepared to pay. The customer service representative told if I changed the landline package to international calls he could do that and Sky Sports UHD for £4.25 per month. I then asked if I was starting the contract again and was told no. He did offer to renegotiate but I said I’m happy with what we’re on.  Anyway now I’m confused as the contract has come through saying 18 months. Seems like he’s contracted me again, what do you think?

Worst of all I tried ringing back and the office was closed and Sky Sports UHD still isn’t working !

I’ve rang back today and been promised it’s not a new contract so all I need it now is to start working !

I’ve been told 24hrs, fingers crossed !

It’s all working now which is great thanks.
I’m still confused though as the paperwork came through saying

Minimum period: 18 Months

Two people on the phone have said I’m only in contract till October, can you clarify this please
