Best Virgin Media Deals – Dec, 2015
Christmas is just around the corner, and for most of us that means lighting a fire, pulling the blanket up close and sitting down to watch something on the TV. Whilst in the recent past that meant traditional TV, but with the rise of the connected TV and smart devices, we’re now also using the Internet to deliver unto us our festive entertainment. So, with that in mind, you might be thinking about getting on board with Virgin Media and upgrading your entertainment experience within your home.
Virgin Media are home to some of the fastest broadband in the country, one of the best pay-TV offerings and even a pretty solid mobile offering, but unfortunately their website makes it confusing to see what their best deals are. So, in this guide we’ll save you a call to the 0844 800 3118 contact telephone number for Virgin Media and lay out all your options in one easy to read page. So, without further delay, let’s dig in.
Virgin Media’s TV offering has come a long way from launch, and is now a compelling option for those looking to watch premium TV channels within their home. Each package comes with a TiVo 500GB TV box, which acts much the same way as Sky+ does, allowing you to record and manipulate live TV, as well as having exclusive features like built in Netflix and Curzon support.
The entry level TV package is called More TV and has the full Freeview list of channels, alongside 70 premium channels, 20 of which can be taken on the go with you through the Virgin application. There’s also 11 HD channels and access to channels like Sky 1, Sky Living and Sky Sports News HQ. This costs just £20 per month on a 12 month contract.
TV M+ features 130 premium channels and over 70 to enjoy on the go, including channels like Discovery, Alibi and many more. Like the basic package, it features 11 HD channels, 7 Sky channels and a free TiVo box. This package is £22.50 per month for 12 months.
TV L adds another 40 channels like Nick Jr, Fox, Comedy Central to the M+ package, bringing the total up to over 170 channels for £29.50 per month, again on a 12 month contract.
TV XL is Virgin Media’s very best package, and it features over 230 channels, 12 Sky channels, 47 HD channels, full access to TV box sets and even access to premium sports channels like BT Sport HD and ESPN HD. This package costs £39.50 per month.
Virgin Media have the best broadband offering in the UK, offering completely unlimited broadband with a free self installation pack and the fastest speeds around. Their packages are as follows:
Super 50 Fibre Broadband features up to 50Mbps fibre optic broadband and costs £19.99 a month for the first 6 months and then £30.25 a month for the remainder of the 12 month contract.
Vivid 100 Fibre Broadband features up to 100Mbps broadband and costs £24.99 per month for the first 6 months and then £35.25 a month for the remainder of the 12 month contract.

Home Phone & Mobile
Virgin Media offer both home and mobile phone packages. Their home phone can only be taken with a TV or Broadband package though, and typically costs around £6.99 per month. Their mobile offering, meanwhile is a constantly changing affair. It’s worth visiting their website regularly to find the latest deals on the latest smartphones.
Virgin Media have made their name in offering simplified combination deals, which can feature everything you need to get connected, like home phone, mobile, TV and broadband. It’s by far their most popular option, so I’ll lay out some of their best and most popular deals here, but know that you can add things like mobile and Sky Sports at their page.
Their basic bundle is the ‘Big Easy‘, and it features the Super 50 Fibre Broadband and the More TV package, alongside a phone line with unlimited weekend calls for £14.99 per month for 9 months and then £24 a month, with a £17.99 a month line rental.
Then we have the ‘Big Bang‘, which has Vivid 100 Fibre Broadband, the TV M+ package and the same phone offering at the Big Easy. This package is £21.99 a month for the first 9 months and then £34 a month, with a £17.99 line rental.
The ‘Big Fun‘ bundle has Vivid 100 Fibre Broadband, the TV L package and the same phone offering as the Big Easy and Big Bang. This package is £24.99 a month for the first 9 months and then £40 a month, with a £17.99 line rental.
Finally, we have the ‘Big Kahuna‘ bundle, so named as it’s their top of the range bundle. It has Vivid 200 Fibre Broadband alongside their TV XL package, and the same phone offering as the other three packages. This package costs £29 a month for 9 months, and then jumps to £55 per month, plus that £17.99 line rental.
