Further to my last post I received another email from virgin with a link that supposedly works, however when I click the link I get the following and there is no point phoning the customer helpdesk as advised as they know nothing about it??? This is very frustrating!!

Same with me. Received a 3rd email which states "There was a glitch in our last email that stopped you from getting our new TV experience, at no extra cost. Sorry about that. Let’s try it again." However, the link still doesn't work and asks me to contact customer services. Customer services know nothing about this, told me it was the virgin go app and then tried to sell me another v6 box for an extra £10 per month. Asked for question to be escalated to a manager at which point the agent just stopped replying (via the sms service). Very frustrating and poor service.
The email is to take part in the trial of your new box / service. It states additional 4k mini box and features not on the v6 box (profiles and voice search). Messaging team still refusing to escalate to a manager (or to anyone who might know more). Every time I ask for an escalation the agent stops responding then a few hours later I get a message asking if I still need help (1-yes 2-no)! Then the process starts again...
If you are advising me to only 'register my interest' why are you sending me emails (x3) requesting i apply (wording as below) with links that ask me to contact customer services who then don't know anything about it?

Usual Virginmedia marketing email, nicely worded and full of promise backed up by poor customer service, dysfunctional web page and zero management escalation process.
Why does every communication with Virginmedia leave me feeling like I'm being awkward just asking for what has been offered. This happens time and time again. Such a shame as your Web service and tv are great.
