I went to cancel Sports yesterday to be told had to give 30 days notice and then ring again. The person offered me £2.25 off my package for 3 months but I have since found out that then my bill goes up £31.25. Extremely unhappy with this service
MP Carolyn Harris is raising a similar issue about BT customers not getting a reduction on their sports package. I have tweeted her to raise the issue of Virgin Media not enabling costomers with the Sky Sports package to pause this element of their overall contract.
I don't know whether Richard Branson still has a direct interest in Virgin Media, but if he is it's somewhat ironic that he is calling for a £7.5 billion bailout for airlines and asking Virgin Atlantic staff to take 8 weeks unpaid leave.
