Cable operator Virgin Media has complimented its existing free and half-price service discounts by adding a credit worth up to £100 to its various triple-play Essential, Premiere and VIP Collections (bundles of broadband, phone and TV). Some bundles also come with free installation.
Prices for the operators triple-play “Collections” now start at just £8 a month for the first 6 months (£18 thereafter) plus £14.99 line rental, which includes their entry-level 30Mbps broadband package, unlimited downloads (Traffic Management), a free SuperHub wireless router, unlimited weekend calls to UK landlines, internet security, 500GB TiVo box, 55+ TV channels (5 are HD) and an 18-month minimum term contract (£49.95 installation fee).
However the new credits only start with the ‘Essential Collection’ bundle (£50 credit), which is the same as the above package except it also includes a free installation, Virgin TV Anywhere, 80+ TV channels (6 are HD) and costs from £16 a month for the first 6 months (£26 thereafter). To get the top £100 credit you need to take Virgin’s 100Mbps VIP Collection.
Meanwhile customers who just want one of the operators dual-play broadband and phone bundles can still benefit from the 6 months free service deal on their 30Mbps package.
