So my son has just told me that Virgin have phoned him today and offered him a free upgrade and self install of a V6
So why did I have to pay £50 just a couple of months ago?
think I'll be on the phone tomorrow.
That's good news for your son and, as is always the case, once the novelty of the box has worn off, the pricing will change. Same happened with TiVo and V+ before that.
You wanted the new box and decided two months ago that it was cost effective to pay the charges which were there at the time.
I paid £200 for the Tivo when it first came out
