sky sport f1

hi virgin service

 

I am a f1 fan and I come an idea about selection package for fans choice as am aware u provide sport package as whole. as I feels need a suggestion that may improve customer sport choice if only choose f1 as an alone channel where other sports may not interested to the fans. example like man utd tv alone channel for 7pound so I thought an change for invidual sport channel? may helps customers choice whole package or invidual channel?

 

thank you

Re: sky sport f1

Dear virgin media. Today got reply from sky sport viewers... See below

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your email regarding Sky Sports F1.

As you are trying to watch Sky Sports F1 on Virgin, I would recommend
you pass this interest for a single Sky Sports channel to Virgin
directly. That way they can see your interest in this idea and look to
speak to us through the appropriate channels.

Kind regards,

Daniel

Hiya sky

I just come to an idea about sky sports package as I know sky do full
package sports as am a F1 fan I lie f1 in the old days use be on bbc or
itv full live stream years ago and things changed due to sky taken over
and all live in sky f1 so am a virgin customer as can't have sky in my
area so now am keen watch f1 on sky but put me off but whole package of
7 and I don't want that am love f1 so am thinking just buy one channel
f1 so I can watch my fav sport? Would u do that to virgin to suggest an
idea so customers can have choice who their fav channel or whole
package? I know whole package can be bit cheaper but still give them a
choice?

Thank you

P Woolmer

Re: sky sport f1

Suggest as much as you like. The current agreement with Sky does not allow Virgin to vary its offering of the Premium channels.

Re: sky sport f1

Agree. The only sport I watch is F1, not interested in football. Wish it was a standalone paid channel. I would be happy with £10 a month for the one channel.

Re: sky sport f1

Have you looked at pricing for Sky's own customers?

Want just F1, rather than all sports channels? Save £2.

Re: sky sport f1

^^ This... Just been looking at sky vs virgin packages and the difference is laughable - also their 'special offers' only typically apply to the full sports package anyway - so you're not really losing anything here.

Re: sky sport f1

Customers should be allowed to build there own channel package I have full house minus Sky Sports & Movies I think the channel count on full house is 230 and I can tell you for a fact we use about 10 of them. But the down side is to get HD and the channels I want we have to go for full house. Someone once said on here if customers were allowed to do this a lot of channels would close down as no one would pick them. I think that is an answer to the question why have them if no one watches them
