Virgin Media packages - What can I get?

Good old Virgin Media (www.virginmedia.com) has got it all. Since it’s a ‘quad-play’ provider, you can bundle broadband, TV, home phone, and mobile together - and there are lots of options to choose from. Broadband, mobile, and all but one of its TV packages are available as standalone contracts on their own too, so it’s no problem to pick and choose the bits you want. Let’s take a look at the packages you can get.

Virgin Media broadband

Virgin Media has its own network of fibre optic cables, meaning its super speedy broadband is available either bundled with other services or on its own, landline-free. There are four different packages available, with three different download speeds:

  • SuperFibre 50 - download speeds up to 50Mb
  • VIVID 100 - download speeds up to 100Mb
  • VIVID 200 - download speeds up to 200Mb
  • VIVID 200 Gamer - download speeds up to 200Mb and upload speeds up to 20Mb

All have unlimited downloads, so you needn’t worry about hitting a usage cap. However, Virgin Media manages web traffic, meaning your connection may slow at peak times - though not on the Gamer package.

You’ll also get a ton of extras thrown in, including a Virgin Media Super Hub, internet security in the form of Web Safe and F-Secure SAFE virus protection, 10 free email addresses, and access to Wi-Fi on the London Underground.

Mobile broadband

There’s also a mobile broadband package available from Virgin Media. Its Wireless Mobile Wi-Fi device has download speeds of up to 21Mb and monthly downloads limit of up to 8GB - with contracts on either a monthly rolling or one-year basis.

Virgin Media TV

Like its broadband, TV from Virgin Media is available either on its own, or bundled in with other services. The only exception is TV M, which you can only snap up as part of the Big Easy bundle with broadband and home phone.

  • Player TV - 70+ channels, including nine in HD
  • Mix TV - 150+ channels, including 10 HD and the Sky suite of channels
  • Fun TV - 190+ channels, including 12 HD, and more entertainment, factual, and kids TV
  • Full House TV - 245+ channels, including 45 HD
  • VIP - everything in Full House TV plus Sky Sports and Sky Cinema

All come with a choice of three set top boxes: a standard V HD box; a 500GB TiVo box to record, rewind, and pause live TV; or a 1TB TiVo box for even more storage. You’ll also get access to Virgin TV Anywhere, to watch on demand TV anywhere from any device, and you can add premium channels whenever you want - including Sky Cinema, Sky Sports, international channels, adult channels, and BT Sport.

Virgin Media home phone

Line rental isn’t available on its own from Virgin Media - only as part of a bundle with broadband or TV. Once you’ve got that down, you have four Talk packages to choose from:

  • Talk Weekends - Standard line rental, with inclusive calls to UK landlines and Virgin Mobiles at weekends.
  • Talk More Weekends - Includes unlimited calls to UK landlines and mobiles at weekends.
  • Talk More Evening and Weekends - Includes calls to UK landlines and mobiles in the evenings as well as weekends.
  • Talk More Anytime - Includes unlimited anytime calls to UK landlines and mobiles.
  • Talk More International Anytime - Includes unlimited calls to UK landlines, UK mobiles, and landlines in 30 international destinations.

They all have some features included, such as voicemail, and a ton of extra features you can add on too, like call divert, premium number barring, and international calls.

Virgin Media Big Bundles

The handy thing about Virgin Media packages is that you can choose which bits you want - or save money and cut down on hassle by going for a ready-made ‘Big Bundle.’ They are:

  • Player bundle - SuperFibre 50 broadband; Player TV; Talk Weekends.
  • Mix bundle - SuperFibre 50 broadband; Mix TV; Talk Weekends.
  • Fun bundle - VIVID 100 broadband; Fun TV; Talk Weekends.
  • Full House bundle - VIVID 200 broadband; Full House TV; Talk Weekends. There's also Full House Sports, with added Sky Sports and BT Sports; or Full House Movies, with added Sky Cinema.
  • VIP bundle - VIVID 200 broadband; Full House TV; Sky Sports; Sky Cinema; an extra TV box; Talk More Anytime.

All include the same perks and extras as each of their individual components - so you’ll get the Virgin Media Super Hub, email addresses, Virgin TV Anywhere, and what-have-you.

You can also add a mobile SIM to your plan - and get a discount on it.

Virgin Mobile

Mobile deals of all kinds are available on their own from Virgin Mobile, though you can pick one up even cheaper if you’re already a Virgin Media broadband or TV customer.

Pay monthly contracts

Whether you want a snazzy new handset or a SIM-only deal, a pay monthly contract is available from Virgin Mobile. Most are simply standard contracts, but on selected phones you can also get a Freestyle one. What this means is that you can switch up your contract whenever you like - so if you find you’re using more data or making more phone calls that you anticipated, it’s no problem to upgrade to the next tariff up.

You’ll have a few options of allowances on your contract, though the exact ones available may vary depending on the handset or contract type you’re going for. They very from a basic 300MB of data per month, all the way up to 20GB and 5000 calling minutes.

Pay as you go

With a pay-as-you-go deal, you start off on Virgin Media’s ‘Starter’ tariff, then have the choice to upgrade if you want to snag some extras. Basically, switch to one of these packages and you’ll get rewards that don’t come out of your credit:

  • Big Data and Texts gets you reward texts and data, and
  • Big Talk gets you reward texts and unlimited calls.

Plus, if you have Virgin Media broadband or TV, free calls to other Virgin mobiles are included.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why can’t I get Virgin Media?
    Virgin Media has its own separate cable network to deliver the provider’s broadband, phone and TV services, which now covers a little over half of the UK. If you live in a town or city, or at least a built-up suburb of one, then chances are you’ll have access to Virgin Media. The network is always growing, though, so if you can’t get it now, that doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be able to get it in the future. Enter your postcode into our comparison tool to find out if Virgin Media is available where you live.
  2. How do I switch to a new TV service?
    Switching TV services is a breeze if you use a comparison service like ours. Simply enter your postcode, and we’ll list all your different options side by side, so you can easily compare features and price. When you find a package you like, click the link and you’ll be taken straight to the provider’s site. Fast, simple and hassle-free.
  3. How do I switch broadband provider?

    The process of changing your broadband provider is actually pretty straightforward. First, you put your postcode into our impartial comparison tool. We’ll display the broadband, phone and TV deals available where you live, and then you can use our search filters to narrow down the options and find the perfect package for your household. Finally, you sign up with your new provider online. They’ll contact your existing provider and take care of everything else for you (unless you're switching to or from Virgin Media).

    The actual switch should be virtually seamless, and in the vast majority of cases it is. Your new broadband provider will send you all the stuff you need to get set up, like a new wireless router and/or TV set-top box.

  4. How long does it take to switch broadband?
    When you sign up to a new provider, they’ll contact your existing one and request a transfer of your service. The only exception is when you're switching to or from Virgin Media, in which case you'll have to call and cancel. While switching times vary depending on the type of package, it shouldn’t usually take more than 10 working days. It can take longer if you don’t currently have a phone line, as an engineer will need to come out and install one for you.
  5. Do I need fibre optic broadband?

    Fibre optic broadband is much faster and much more reliable than broadband through the phone line, but it’s not essential for everyone. If you just want to browse the web, check email, Facebook, Twitter etc, you’ll be fine with standard broadband through the phone line.

    However, if you stream a lot of video, download music, films and games, and other such activities, you will likely find a fibre connection hugely beneficial.

    It’s also a boon for large households, especially ones with lots of gadgets like smartphones, tablets, and computers connected up most of the time. The more people using a connection, the slower it will be, so if you have a big family where lots of people want to connect to the web at the same time, for example, a fibre connection will ensure everyone can get a good experience.

  6. Can I save money by bundling TV, phone and broadband?
    Yes you can. Providers like Sky and Virgin Media offer competitively priced bundles, comprising broadband, home phone and TV, and getting all three services from the same place often leads to significant savings. It also makes it easier to manage finances, as all services come on a single bill.
