I called VM looking to remove Sky Movies from my TV package (looking to save money as I'm on furlough and could be losing my job). But I was told that I can't remove Movies without also removing Sports (which I want to keep to remain sane).
I didn't realise that Movies and Sports were so 'handcuffed' together. Has anyone else found this?
It would depend on which package you are on. Are Sky Sports and Sky Movies part of the package? Removing them would mean changing to another package and possibly losing further discounts.
Some people have SkySports and/or Sky Movies as an additional addon. If they were a combined addon then they can't be removed separately, however they should be able to remove them both, and then add the Sky Sports back on. If my memory serves me correctly the SkySports would be £22 per month in SD and and additional £7 for the HD version.
Your best bet would be to speak to the cancellations team by dialling 150 from your Virgin landline, or 0345 454 1111, options 1,1 4, and 4 (Thinking of leaving us) butbest to call at 8am to avoid call queues
Have you looked at regrading your package? The Bigger bundle plus Sports is £120 per month (£65 for new customers) bigger-bundle-sports
If you are out of contract you should be able to haggle that price.
The Ultimate Oomph bundle is £139 per month (£79 for new customers) again you could haggle with this. This package represents better value if you wnat unlimited landline calls, plus an unlimited mobile sim and also Sky Movies.
You could also look at the Big Bundle which is £56 per month (£33 for new customers) plus the additional cost of Sky Sports.
