You know as much as me.

Information was found by MB HQ using Virgin Media Ireland web site and playing about with their TV Anywhere page.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

It always makes me laugh that members are complaining about problems with VM and any new channels coming.

I know that Talking Pictures is coming in June. Its about time customers with VM spoke with there wallets. And stopped paying subs to VM.

VM is a second rate company whjo don't care aboiut brining channels for customers. And take customers for a ride.

I am always being stopped by sales reps in Hounslow and asking about joining VM. When saying we are with VM. They then asked if they could REDUCE our account. After checking, they stated that we could have a discount as we already had a cheap discount.. When we said we could go over to Sky, they said 'go on then' that's what l call good salesmanship.

Its about time that VM put customers first, and got rid of customers services abroad. Keep CS in the UK.

The interesting thing about Worldbox is that it dumps the entire favourites list each time some trivial new stream is added. Very flawed.

They should probably all be based in Hounslow with a beefed up sales team.

Er, if you stopped paying the subs, you'd stop receiving the channels. Seems to be a bit of a flaw in your argument, Arthur.

If Virgin was that bad, you'd be with Sky for all your pay tv by now, wouldn't you?

Agree with BIB as you know i had issues with VM rather than bleat on about it i voted with my feet and actually went ahead and cancelled everything and switched, if more people did this to companies instead of moaning on forums vm,sky etc probably do not read then companies will probably sit up and take notice.

Talking pictures is a new channel; celebrate it's arrival. The Big ones you want probably aint gonna happen in the near future. We have all the main channels except the currently unavailable few.


And it wasn't rocket science to realise 4K would be a good while down the line before it arrived on VM

You know OB as dreaming is his stock and trade when it comes to hoping for the impossible.

Two reasons why I want Amazon and either Sky Atlantic or Now TV Entertainment Pass on Virgin. One is so that all the programmes I want to see are available through the V6 and the other is that the more the V6 is regarded as a comprehensive streaming box, the more attractive this will be to potential subscribers.

More subscribers = more money coming in = more money for new content = very satisfied OLD BOY.

Sorry, but I thought I had already explained this. Virgin will eventually sink if it doesn't keep ahead of (or at least keep up with) the game.

Den, old chap, no matter how old we get, it is always better to look forward rather than back! Hope is what keeps us all going.

Hope for the future, as Paul McCarney says, and he's about 10 years older than me! Play the video on You Tube! Well worth pondering! 😂

Dave, you are so incredibly negative for such a young chap! Nothing is impossible.

Sky have already admitted that things have moved on. The outcome of contractual negotiations between VM and Sky may yet surprise you.
