Virgin nearly screwed me…


I GOT a call from Virgin Media yesterday asking me if – for an extra two quid a month in addition to the broadband bill – I’d like 100 TV channels, including Sky. I almost said yes to what seemed like a bargain. Good job I hesitated – thousands of cable subscribers woke up this morning to discover the Sky channels had disappeared overnight, thanks to Virgin and Sky failing to reach an agreement on the package. Sky might be to blame, but WTF was Virgin doing trying to get me to buy this package yesterday when they must have known that it could be off the air in a matter of hours? Not amused. But did anyone sucker it?
