*The "average" speed displayed in Mb represents the speed available to 50% of customers with this product during peak time (between 8pm and 10pm). The actual speed you will get depends on your cabling, your area and (with non-fibre optic products) time of day and how far you are from the telephone exchange. Most providers will tell you the likely speed you will receive when you begin your online sign up — this may differ from the average speed displayed on our table.

Contract discount compares the promotional price currently offered across all services (broadband, line rental, TV, etc.) against the monthly cost of the same package without promotions, multiplied by the duration of the contract.

The deals available at your postcode are subject to local availability. The provider will confirm availability for your line.

We aim to take the strain out of broadband comparison. Good broadband deals aren't just about the price, it's also about what's included in the product, the speeds offered and any extra incentives providers are offering. To balance all of these, we have developed a ranking formula that takes into account deals that are proving to be popular with our customers, that are competitive in the market and have a smooth buying process.

If you prefer, you can sort deals by monthly cost, speed or contract length. You can also choose to show costs as monthly or full contract, which lets you see the total spend over the contract period, including any setup costs.

uSwitch services are provided at no cost to you, but we may receive a commission from the companies we refer you to.

Virgin Media offers a huge choice of programming with up to 245 channels available, including the best of Sky, Sky Sports, Freeview, terrestrial channels and on-demand TV. Depending on the package you choose you'll receive either a 500GB TiVo box or Virgin's new, cutting-edge Virgin TV V6 box, which is also powered by TiVo. Virgin's new set-top box is 1TB, allowing you to keep up to 500 hours of TV recorded and stored for later.

Virgin's new set-top box, the Virgin TV V6 box

Virgin recently announced the launch of their new set-top box, the V6. It's still powered by TiVo, so it'll look and feel familiar to current users and it still offers all the great functionality of TiVo — but smarter, faster and smaller.

The feature that really sets the V6 box apart from its competitors is an intelligent search that allows you to look for content across all of Virgin's apps, services and channels. So if you're watching a series on Netflix and run out of episodes, you can perform a smart search on your V6 box and see if newer episodes are available on any other streaming service or on-demand. This feature also works for directors and actors, too.

Customers on the Mix, Fun, Full House and VIP bundles will get the V6 box with their package.

What do I need to get Virgin Media TV?

Getting on board with Virgin Media TV is simple; however, you’ll need a fibre-optic broadband connection to sign up with Virgin. This is because the service is delivered to your home via the company’s highly advanced cable broadband network technology.

If you’re an existing Virgin Media broadband customer, you may already have one of these. If not, that’s no problem: Virgin Media TV bundles include a fibre-optic broadband connection as part of the deal.

Unfortunately, because Virgin Media’s network does not currently cover all of the UK, not all homes can get Virgin Media fibre-optic broadband.

To check the availability of Virgin TV services in your area, use our broadband postcode checker. Bear in mind that offers and availability change, so always check with the Virgin Media sales team.

Virgin Media 3D TV requirements

To enjoy 3D TV with Virgin Media you’ll first need to check that you have a 3D capable TV, plus some special stereoscopic 3D glasses. Finally, to connect the box to your TV, you’ll require an HDMI cable. This in included free of charge with all Virgin Media TV bundles.

It’s worth noting that not everything you watch will be in 3D, simply because many programmes and movies will not have been made with the technology in mind.
