Virgin Media Rant

I just have to get this off my chest. Virgin Media

For those of you who missed it - the contract between Virign and Sky for the 'basic' package (Sky One, Sky News, Sky Sports News) runs out at the end of this month (Thursday). Talks to renew this have broken down. Nobody is sure why as the reasons given differ depending on who is doing the reporting.

The fact of the matter is - if you visit their website - Virgin blame Sky (unequivocably) and don't seem to think that it matters that they are about to lose Sky One et al. They seem to think that they have enough to offer that nobody will mind! THINK AGAIN YOU MORONS

I don't think that 'pay per view' and 'TV on demand' from last year makes up for missing the end of Stargate SG-1 (forever) the last few episodes of this series of Atlantis and the most of the series of Lost and 24.

I would dump them for Sky if I could... but unfortunately trees block the signal to my house. I can't help but wonder if NTL would have been as cavalier as Virgin... who don't seem to give a moment's thought to their customers.

If you are an NTL/Telewest/Virgin customer - let them know what you think! They have a thread on Virgin Forum
