Re: Been proven right

I'm astonished this thread has been allowed? Arthur price increases occur every year and often twice or three times a year. You cannot connect UKTV returning to it? You genuinely have no proof for this but your opinion?

I literally am staggered this has been allowed to get to two pages!!

Re: Been proven right

Be thankful it's a modest increase. You could be living in Venezuela where inflation is tipped to exceed 1,000,000% per year.

I have been proved right. Prices are now going up - and customers are correct in complaining, and also planning on leaving VM.

VM simply cannot treat us a money machine.

They are NOT providing us with the entertainment packages that we need.

My broadband service is slow. Yet, CS have stated that it is the speed that we are paying for - and its the top one

I am not prepared to pay such an increase for the service - yes, we have Sky, and have the channels that VM doesn't have - ie SA.

We have the phoine and BB. But, my wages haven't gone up. So l am NOT prepared to bust my household budget because VM are being greedy

So what are you going to do about it Arthur?

Yes but even when a chicken costs millions/billions of Venezuelan euros it still only equates to £1.42

Might catch up with our prices before long.

You can always vote with your feet, Arthur. Just bare in mind all of them raise their prices.

Re: Been proven right

Lets prove a point here.

How many members were complaining about VM increased there prices THREE TIMES last year. Yes, l was one of them.

Sky increase only once per year.

Not unless someone can prove me wrong

I believe its wrong when a company increases prices. And doesn't show any new channels. And +1s are not new channels are they.

Can you prove me wrong - yes, l am surprised that this topic has gone to three pages. And by the looks of it, it will go to four.

The only point you have proven is you're still.

True, but after VM recently encouraged their customers to look at what Freeview has to offer, some might find that this meets their needs. The channels currently on Freeview and/or Freesat actually offer more than I was paying for on pay TV at one point!

Also, to get around these constant price rises, some might go for a much cheaper streaming service option, where the starting price is lower to start with.

Unless you're a sports fan, the argument for paying for TV is getting weaker IMO.
