Virgin Media has introduced a new broadband bundle, featuring IPTV services, super-fast broadband and home phone calls.

The broadband provider's new Classic Collection - which is priced at £18 per month - has been designed for households seeking a range of entertainment services.

It joins Virgin Media’s Essential, Premiere and VIP Collections to provide a wide range of entertainment options for families to suit all budgets.

In terms of broadband, the Classic Collection offers super-fast 30Mb fibre optic broadband as standard - delivering three times the average UK download speed.

The home phone service features unlimited calls to other landlines, 0870 numbers and all Virgin Mobiles every weekend.

Subscribers are able to take advantage of the firm's TiVo service, which enables TV viewers to search and browse thousands of hours of entertainment.

The award-winning service is described by Virgin Media as being "the perfect TV companion", automatically recording shows based on what has been watched in the past.

"Using its built in connectivity, TiVo offers cutting edge interactivity with a continually evolving line-up of apps, such as Spotify, extending the functionality of the service," the firm stated.

A wide range of starter TV and radio channels, including a basic HD service, are also included, as well as seven-day catch up services from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5,.

Customers also gain access to hundreds of hours of TV on demand, thousands of music videos and 500 movies through Virgin Media’s pay-per-rental service.

Andrew Barron, Chief Operating Officer at Virgin Media, said the success of Virgin Media's Collections offering to date "is testament to the growing mainstream demand for super-fast broadband and next generation connected television".

"Our customers tell us they love being able to enjoy their favourite TV shows at a time that suits them and that they’re discovering new family favourites thanks to TiVo," he stated.

"In introducing the Classic Collection, we continue to make such leading services the standard with Virgin Media."

The new broadband bundle is available on standard 12-month contracts as well as with six months half-price on 18-month contracts.
