*The "up to" speed displayed in Mb is the maximum possible speed you are likely to receive for this product. 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 speed displayed in the table.

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 maket and have a smooth switching process.

If you prefer, you can sort deals by the average monthly cost, which is all of the costs - including any compulsory upfront costs such as router delivery or installation fee - divided by the length of the contract. Or you can sort by the total contract cost for all packages which let’s you see the total spend for the whole contract period

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 boxor 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.

TiVo

The TiVo service from Virgin Media offers all your favourite TV channels, including Sky favourites, catch-up TV, on-demand movies and shows, and internet media content. It allows you to pause and rewind live TV shows, record three channels while watching a fourth, and manage your recordings from your mobile device or laptop.

The TiVo box, available with either 500GB or 1TB of storage, offers up to 500 hours of standard TV or up to 100 hours of HD TV for the 1TB version. The 500GB TiVo model lets you record around 250 hours of standard TV and around 50 hours of HD TV.

With a host of other features, including programming suggestions, WishLists according to actor or director, and intelligent space management, the TiVo box is a must-have tool for anybody who is serious about their television.

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.

The new V6 box costs £99.95 for most customers, although if you're on a top-tier Full House or VIP bundle, the set-top box only costs £49.95.

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.
