Find Customer Service Phone Numbers of Top Entertainment Brands in UK – Xbox, BT, Sky & Virgin Media.

BT Sport

BT have successfully reinvented themselves over the last few years, moving from a tired, fusty media empire to something a little more vital – a direct competitor to Sky, in a very serious way.

That’s been on the back of their nabbing of Premier League and Champions League football rights, which have drawn in customers to their TV, broadband and mobile packages, on the promise of huge matches from around the globe.

Recent years have seen Sky take the visual aspect of television to a new level for UK based customers with the launch of broadcast 4K TV, but for many of us, the audio aspect remains frustratingly limited.

Although Sky do send audio in high bitrates for HD and 4K customers, the vast majority of homes make do with the standard audio of their televisions, which are typically thin and lacking in quality. That’s a shame, because with programming like Game of Thrones currently airing, audio has rarely been more important to the television experience.

TalkTalk changes

Amid continued struggles, TalkTalk have announced that they’ve captured their fourth chief financial offer in four years, poaching Kate Ferry from Dixons Carphone, who will take office in the autumn.

Ms Ferry comes to the company with a rich and storied history, with a career at Merrill Lynch as a specialist retail analyst behind her, as well as the top spot at Dixons Carphone. She’ll replace Iain Torrens in the latest move to revitalise TalkTalk, after Sir Charles Dunstone returned to the business he started within Carphone Warehouse.

Virgin Media deal

Sky and Virgin Media enjoy something of a tetchy relationship at present, and who could blame them? Together, they monopolise a huge portion of the pay-TV, broadband, mobile and home television markets.

True, whilst the two companies are fierce rivals on all fronts, they’ve found room for cooperation in the past, like in the appearance of Sky channels like Cinema and Sports on Virgin TV platforms. However, that was mandated by the media regulator Ofcom, who demanded that Sky’s services be available on all platforms.

Sky Cinema Programmes

As Sky continues to expand across Europe and develop itself into much more than a mere television provider, they’ve been laying down vital groundwork to fund their growth.

However, their success will likely always be underpinned by a continued dominance in the pay-tv sector. That’s why the company have this week announced two new long-term strategic partnerships with major American content providers – A+E and NBC Universal.

It’d be fair to say that despite the occasional theatrics, the last year hasn’t been a thrilling one for Sky Sports customers. The Premier League quickly became a procession as a strong Chelsea side cantered to the title and few surprises were sprung in the other major sporting tournaments broadcast on Sky.

Of course, it’s not all about the drama, but a good, evolving story is what keeps us coming back to services like Sky Sports, and keeps us from choosing to contact Sky and cancel our pricey Sky Sports passes or subscriptions.

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.

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.

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.

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.

News and entertainment changes

When it comes to our home entertainment, we all love Sky. With incredible programmes, the best selection of films anywhere and wonderful sport all year ’round, there’s nothing quite like it. However, we don’t often pay much thought to how those amazing experiences find their way to our television screens.

Every day, thousands of people work together to bring your the biggest breaking news stories, the funniest comedies and much more. Their work hardly goes noticed, and they’re unlikely to be mentioned when we contact Sky, but they make the entire operation run smoothly.
