Re: UHD

Are you saying you've requested online to have the UHD-VoD bundle added, and you've had the email confirmation?

If so, then follow (on your V6 menus) Home > OnDemand > BoxSets > UltraHD - and the available programmes will be listed.

There shouldn't be an "Upgrade to watch" if the change has been made.

Re: UHD

Hi abbg05700,

If done over the phone it's usually instant. Any other method is usually within 48 hours, but can sometimes take up to 5 days..

Please try the following using your remote control

 Help & Settings > Help > Virgin T> go up to the top of the screen then TV Care and press OK >  Missing Channels.? > Refresh my channels list

Re: UHD

Does your online account specifically show the new package active from "now"?

As opposed to your next bill date or suchlike?

What TV package did you change from and to? I know you've mentioned the UHD OnDemand add-on and hinted at channel changes.

Re: UHD

As mentioned, online changes are usually actioned within 48hours whereas "done by phone" are often immediate.

When you mentioned "no channels" in your first post I presumed that meant the change included some channels being added/removed - it sounds like the only change was the UHD VoD add-on.

There have been some, ahem, "communication issues" with some C/S agents re this add-on.

Re: UHD

You will need to check you are actually viewing the broadcasts in UHD. I have noticed that even when the info states the broadcast is UHD that it is actually just HD. Even Virgins own UHD channel is mainly HD.
