Update: Since the launch of Sky VR, Sky have been regularly updating the app with VR content, but there’s one aspect which remains disappointing – No Google Daydream support. That’s been an annoyance for some customers in the reviews and on the Sky tel number, but if you’ve got a Google Cardboard device, it still represents a top VR option on smartphones.

Update: Since the launch of Sky Q, the company have been inundated with calls to the Sky customer service number from existing customers looking to upgrade to Sky Q. As a result, Sky have moved to make Sky Q standard for all new customers, as well as slashing the cost of upgrading for customers on Sky+. They’ve also launched their 4K service with lots of on-demand content and hundreds of Sky Sports Premier League matches broadcast in the high resolution format. What follows is the original Sky Q launch article, originally published in February, 2016:

Sky + is dead

Update: Sky Q has proven to be a huge hit since Sky made the transition towards the boxes as standard, but they have once again reiterated that customers who remain on Sky+ won’t be left out when it comes to new features. Though the legacy box is unlikely to see any major revision, Sky have committed to bringing nice new features to the box. So, even though Sky customer services will no longer offer your a Sky+ box as standard, you’ll see a steady trickle of new features come to the service.

Vodafone contact number

Vodafone are, in 2017, one of the biggest mobile networks not just in the UK, but in the world. With a turnover north of £40 billion in 2016, they’re a global telecommunications giant with a reach which extends into more sectors than you might imagine.

As a customer in the UK though, what should you know about Vodafone? In this guide, we’re going to break down the essentials about the company, from their founding right up to their current offerings for potential customers like you. Let’s get started, shall we?

Today, Virgin Media are without a doubt one of the biggest media and telecommunications companies in the UK. Offering the fastest broadband available in the UK for general consumers, a reliable mobile network, home phone and a TV service which stands right alongside Sky as amongst the best available, they’re in a remarkable marketing position.

Since 2015, T-Mobile no longer exists in the UK. As part of a deal with Orange, both companies disappeared and become EE – a network which is currently the biggest in the UK, and was recently purchased by BT. As such, T-Mobile are no longer a presence, and all calls to the T-Mobile number are now handled by EE.

TalkTalk are still in the process of repairing their brand after a major hack in 2015 meant that around 157,000 customers were in danger of having their personal details stolen. Poorly handled and originally covered up, that hack led to a spate of customers leaving the company and an expensive compensation package being offered to customers by way of an apology.

In the year since, TalkTalk have revamped their brand, simplifying their advertising and pricing policy and vowing that nothing like that hack would happen again.

Virgin are a massive company. With fingers in everything from home broadband to healthcare and beyond, there’s no shortage of areas in life where you’ll find the Virgin brand. Because of that scale, it can be hard to keep on top of all the Virgin news out there, although it’s fair to say that Virgin don’t do the best job at collating that information into one place.

Let’s be honest, for all the good things about Vodafone, their communication skills aren’t up there with the best. It’s not because of a lack of news stories out there, it’s simply because the official channels that Vodafone use just aren’t kept as up to date as they could be.

So, we decided to pick up their slack and round up all of the Vodafone news stories that have hit the wires over the last 30 days. From terrible customer service scores to the potential for drone traffic management, it’s been an interesting December for Vodafone. Let’s dig in.

When it comes to pay TV, there’s no bigger company within the UK than Sky. Created from the buyout of the failing British Satellite Broadcasting and merged with Sky Television Plc back in 1989, BskyB (now simply Sky) endured a rocky start to life. The subsequent decades, however, have seen the struggling pay TV supplier become the dominant force in the market, outmuscling the likes of BT, Virgin and a host of smaller suppliers.

For lots of us, we simply don’t need to change our contract every single year. If the number of minutes we use and the amount of data and texts we get through remain much the same, why bother? Maybe you even got a fantastic deal in the past that you didn’t want to let go of?
