Sky vs Virgin vs Youview etc

58 posts in this topic

I made the switch from Sky to Virgin about a year ago, but am probably looking to switch back to Sky

 

I made a few savings, but Sky just performs "better" IMO. The savings aren't worth having to endure the way Virgin works

 

I just need to find a better package combination to keep costs down

 

 

Who are you with?

Ever switched?

 

How much do you pay for TV & Broadband each month?

 

Is YouView any good?

With virgin , can't stand skys random behaviour with the weather ,think their on demand is poor, and it has more recording limits compared to virgin,

Plus the virgin net here shits on sky's from a great height

From I was a yout - all we ever had was sky

And before that we had cable

So I have sky in my yard, everything else is too fiddly

Sky's layout is so clear and simple to navigate

I'm a Sky man too, paying about 70 a month for the full Monty...sports, movies, internet, telephone....not cheap but I'd do anything to not have that horrible clunky interface that Virgin try to palm off as a service. All the Usain Bolt adverts in the world won't convince me otherwise so give it up Richy

 

I'd keep it for Sky Go alone, that sh*ts a lifesaver

 

Shout out to Idris Elba

I know bredrin and I download most of my sh*t too but having on demand for all movies is THE one

just "haggled" Virgin Media to £28 per month for internet+phone basic package (50mb and weekend calls, inc line rental)

is that decent?

 

I'm thinking of moving to TalkTalk 'cause its like £20/month for the same, but can get £125 cashback with quidco, which equates to about £13/month for the 18 months

 

anyone dealt with TalkTalk?

becomes a routine with loads of providers, I remember with Sky that was normal, and even Virgin Media when I had them before Sky, though they've been aite this time around

 

apparently its normal to need to power cycle your router for best results

nah it got ridiculous, im with sky now and at most ill only have to do it once a week.

 

but with talk talk it was daily thing, plus the routers they send out are shit. even though most people should actually go out buy a decent router.

Had bt at uni and had to reset that shit every hour

C/S talk talk being pooooor.

I dont actually watch tv anymore, between amazon instant and netflix dont need it.

Torrents can cover anything in between.

Thinking of adding now tv for the movies and locking netflix, i dont really use if for series watching.

Erm realised i went off topic lol.

i didnt like sky broadband.. for me it was never near claimed speeds

the tv was clean, interface is the best out there.

plusnet fibre atm 20 a month. The one time i had issues customer service was non existant but its only been once.

virgin offering top speeds so might switch to them next for BB only.

Sky have been the most reliable I ever been with.

Reckon I've had to restart my router 3/4 times in 2 years

Told me I'd get 18mb and I get 16 usually.

Sky is boog and you have to jump through hoops to put a new router in.
