Virgin Media offers Sky and BT broadband users £200 to make the switch


    Virgin Media is trying to entice BT, Sky and TalkTalk customers over to its service with a big new incentive. The telecoms and TV firm is currently offering £200 when taking out certain bundles with the credit added back to bills. It basically means those signing up can get over three months of telly and internet access completely free. This deal is available on a number of options including Virgin’s Bigger + Movies, Bigger + Sports and the Ultimate Volt option which features hundreds of channels and even a SIM for your smartphone.

    Once a new customer hits the buy button and gets things installed, Virgin will then add the credit to the account.

    Sound enticing? Here are all the options, how much they each cost and what is included.

    Bigger Bundle + Movies
    PRICE: £57 per month
    INCLUDES: M350 broadband, 200+ TV channels, Talk Weekends and full Sky Cinema access
    INCENTIVES: Get £200 bill credit

    Bigger Bundle + Sports
    PRICE: £65 per month
    INCLUDES: M500 broadband, 200+ TV channels, Talk Weekends and full Sky Sports access
    INCENTIVES: Get £200 bill credit

    Ultimate Volt Bundle
    PRICE: £85 per month
    INCLUDES: Gig1 broadband, 230+ TV channels, Talk Anytime and full Sky Cinema and Sports access. There’s also an O2 SIM for your smartphone
    INCENTIVES: Get £200 bill credit

    Before you sign on the dotted line, it is worth remembering that these deals last for 18 months before prices then rise. For example, the Bigger Bundle + Movies goes up from £57 to £106 once the contract comes to an end so make sure you are prepared to pay that price or happy to renegotiate the deal.


    Of course, it’s not just Virgin Media offering a discount right now.

    Sky’s best deals currently include its Glass TV with free premium channels plus full Netflix access.

    That big discount means you can tune into endless boxsets, watch shows on platforms such as Sky Comedy, Sky Atlantic and National Geographic without paying a penny for the privilege.

    The free deal lasts for the first three months of the contract and means you only pay for the TV itself and nothing else with prices starting from £13 per month.

    As a quick reminder, this latest telly comes in three sizes (43, 55 and 65-inch) and a number of colours including Ocean Blue, Racing Green and Dusky Pink.

    Along with a 4K screen, Sky Glass also features an in-built Dolby Atmos-compatible soundbar with six speakers and a booming subwoofer.
