    virgin internet is very good, but the TV isn’t anywhere near as good as Sky. If you’re looking to save money and are happy with your Vodafone (assuming it’s not SIRO fibre to home you’re on) , then change to Sky for broadband. They do very good 12 month offers when you take the broadband.

    They lost a load of channels recently, the user interface isn’t nearly as good as sky, and the box has a good few quirks/bugs. There’s talk of a new “V6” box coming out in a few months, I’d hold off till then. Sky do the best channel lineup and have the best box.

    They got those channels back, if it's the UK TV ones you are speaking about.

    no i'm not talking about saorview… I want a few more channels than that. Vodafone have now offered bb and tv for 60 per month for 12months? Any opinions on Vodafone tv??

    Ask your neighbors, as services can vary greatly across the town
