remote control control for visually impaired people

Tuning in


My parents (age 86yrs) have had a high definition white controller x 2 for several years, and we need to renew them. My mother is visually impaired.

I have contacted customer services several times, (all staff are very nice) and they start off saying they don’t have them anymore, then when I ask them to double check, they confirm they have them, and then order them for us, we have now received 8 black (not hi def)  remotes, which my mother cannot use.

Please, can anyone confirm if virgin media  have these white high definition white controllers?

thank you for your help.

Hi Pinkygemstar12, 

Thanks for taking the time to contact us via the Community. It's lovely having you on board with us in the Forums.

We're sorry to hear that you've had difficulty ordering a remote suitable for your parents. Depending on the box your parent have, will depend on whether there is one available I'm afraid. This could be why you've had some conflicting information on whether we do or don't have them. 

Let's have a look at the account and we can go from there. We'll need to confirm some details with you so I have sent you a direct message to allow us to do this with you in a private space. If you are using a PC/Laptop then you can just click on the little ✉ at the top right-hand side of the page to access your inbox. If you are on a mobile/tablet device then instead click on the little circle icon in the top right then select 'Messages'. 😊
