I rang up virgin yesterday to see if there were any deals to reduce my package. I’ve kept everything the same for about £17 less. I’ve got the full house package, anyway, soon as I got off the phone, the kids tv channels went off, rang back up and was assured I should still have them as they’re included. Done the usual switching the boxes off etc but they’re still missing and saying I need a subscription for them. I was passed to technical support who said yes I should definitely have those channels, but I don’t. An engineer has been booked but I really don’t see how he’s going to fix it. I’m certain that subscribers has just been removed somehow. It’s just a coincidence how they went off on all boxes as soon as I was on the phone
Anyone on a LEGACY Full House pack still receives the childrens channels as standard.
If the pack is added as part of a new contract it DOES NOT include them:
"A dedicated Kids Pick is also available on Player and Full House packages and will keep Virgin Media’s youngest viewers entertained for just £5 per month. This includes 11 channels, such as Disney XD, Nickelodeon and the Cartoon Network, as well as many episodes available via catch-up and box sets."
I’ve been back on the phone to the and they’ve said I definitely still have the kids channels. She said it’s probably because there’s a fault in my area. I’m not convinced. There was no fault yesterday morning when it all of sudden went off. And it’s only those specific channels. I just feel like I’m gonna be waiting for an engineer for no reason
EDIT: just seen your reply - too late for my post - I would get back on and ask them to add them back now.
Call them back and go to the "thinking of leaving" options 1-1-4-5 - argue the toss firmly but politely that they should not have been removed. Worst case scenario is they add them back and charge you £5/mo. Oh and you are right - cancel the technician visit
