Virgin TV UHD Channel no Extra Cost

I received this offer last week :
Saved the URL for Saturday 18 December -
https://www.virginmedia.com/virgin-tv-edit/customer-exclusive/virgin-tv-uhd-channel-no-extra-cost

There is also a post in the Community :
https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Digital-life/Enjoy-Virgin-TV-UHD-channel-at-no-extra-cost-over-...

It is now Saturday, and the channel is still not available, subscription only

Channel 228

Christmas gift

I keep getting emails from Virgin Media titled "Our Christmas TV gift to you"

Then goes on the say they are giving me access to Virgin TV Ultra HD from the 18th to 31st December on channel 228 or 999.

I have just checked and neither channel is available,they are both grayed out and a subscription bis required.

Is this another special offer from Virgin Media to me, that does not apply to me, a loyal customer.

Re: Christmas gift

I've combined a couple of posts into one thread here, where the issue is clearly the same. And I don't imagine there's anything sinister in this - just a fault that's hopefully easily rectified.

I'm on Maxit bundle so can't verify this problem - but have flagged it to forum staff for checking.

I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more

Re: Virgin TV UHD Channel no Extra Cost

Same issue here, although there is quite a lot of "small print" to the offer - only certain Bundles (I'm on Mix so should be OK) and only Primetime - not sure what that means but the Programme Guide does show greyed out programmes and clicking on any of them brings instructions on Upgrading.
Virgin never seem able to get things right.

Re: Virgin TV UHD Channel no Extra Cost

I came on the forum as I'm having the same issue! I have the mixit package so wondered if that was why. I have had the email a couple of times so assumed they'd only email customers who are eligible

Re: UHD channel

Finally, a third eMail and this one includes details of the valid packages
Mix
Fun
Player
Big TV

Strange that MixIt is not included

Equally, the eMail clearly states "offer for you"
Very misleading

Re: Had email saying c228 UHD available tonight but it isnt.

I see Gattaca (1997) as I post this on channel 228. Have you got a video output settting of 2160p?
