Not a happy bunny today... phoned up virgin to try and get a better deal as I'm a long term loyal customer. I made it clear to the lady that I need AT LEAST the amount of channels we have at the moment- especially the kids, over an hour on the phone, and I asked and double checked several times with the lady that the new package would be BETTER ... so agreed to a new 12 month contract and 'upgrade 'from fun tv package to the maxi tv bundle. Great I thought, monthly price has gone down and the amount of available channels has gone up. Got off the phone and checked online the channel list and I was so annoyed to find I would lose 90 % of the kids channels on the new package !!
How can virgin get away with ripping off loyal customers and misselling 'upgrades'.
I phoned up virgin and they wanted an extra £4 a month for me to add the kids channels back !! Disgusting that customers can be treated like this.
Luckily I am within cooling off period and upgrade has been cancelled, but I feel so annoyed.
I learnt this lesson few years ago (to be fair it's not just Virgin), when altering package or discussing a new contract try and do it in an online chat. This way you can save chat or screen shot exactly what was discussed. If you really have to chat over the phone write the conversation up right away in a word document, this helped me resolve an issue a few years ago when I took out Sky Sports.
