Cheaper than Sky, a much better service. What more can you ask for?
Firstly, let's start with slagging of Sky. I find that Sky are overpriced and their equipment is nothing on what Virgin Media offer. Ever since Sky updated their Electronic Programme Guide, it went very laggy! Virgin Media's V+ Box is an excellent peice of kit with you being able to record 2 programmes at once whilst watching another. This is lots better thank Sky's record one watch one. Their TV service is out of this world, they offer you it at a much cheaper price than Sky and also you get a full catch up TV service not a few programmes shoved together under a Sky Anytime badge. Now, let's talk about the Music on Demand service which is a great hit for the kids, you find that you have over 10000 songs available on the V + Box to listen to any time you want. Just select Music on Demand and you can listen to any song you want when ever you want and also totally free on the TV XL package they offer.
Broadband is excellent, super quick and they offer you an excellent service. If you ever have a fault you'll find it's fixed within a day. Which is pretty good compared to BT.
When you call up you normally get through to some chirpy Scottish guy, well I usually do. They are all great, and you get excellent customer support that's not in india!
Summary: Cheaper, Better, Happier.
