Re: New Pick 'n' Mix option TV bundles

So in future if I want 200mb broadband maxit tv I HAVE to take a mobile 2gig sim also?

Why isn't 350mb BB on the list has it been discontinued?

Talk about bloody confusing.

To be fair, I'd guess where a bundle includes a mobile SIM, there won't be an option for CS to not send one. But what you do with it...

I can only presume VM want to get their mobile-base up which you can't blame them for. But I can't be the only one for whom V-Mobile isn't a viable option - I'd guess putting the SIM into a drawer and leaving it, would be the obvious solution.

Re: New Pick 'n' Mix option TV bundles

Indeed, there seems to be a lot of packages that force a SIM on to you.

I would consider a SIM deal but my VM deal runs out in 3 months and my mobile contract runs out next July. It just doesn't work for me.

I'll need to see which new package is closest to the old VIP, I'm yet to find it out of that list

The only one is the Ultimate Oomph bundle.

The VIP bundles have always been designed to be the top of everything available. So that now includes a mobile SIM.

Re: New Pick 'n' Mix option TV bundles

I'm currently on Full House with 200mb internet, talk weekends and one extra TiVo V6 which I'm currently charged 81.50 (not including discounts). For the same package on the new Bigger Bundle works out at 95.50 on the website (including the extra 5 for the kids channels as I have young kids and I wnat an easier life )


An extra 14 per month for the new version of the same package seems a bit steep to me or is there something wrong with the pricing when personalising a bundle?

No. You can upgrade your broadband without taking a SIM.

You can add that too, again without taking a SIM

Only one - Ultimate Oomph (formerly V.VIP). All the other bundles are SIM Free unless you opt for a BB boost + SIM.

Re: New Pick 'n' Mix option TV bundles

I have two VM contracts both expiring end of this month - one VIP (with extra V6 boxes) and one standard bundle. Interestingly they refused to offer me any deal on the standard bundle - said I had to wait till contract had ended.
For the VIP one I switched to the ultimate oomph plus an extra V6 box, and they offered that package for 101.50. Not too bad considering it includes 3 V6 boxes.
Awful naming changes aside, good to see new customers not getting preferential treatment for once.
