Re: Virgin Media's quarterly and full year results.

Yes those figures will be interesting MB but what customers want to hear is what channels or Tivo functionality is coming their way in the coming months to appease many customers who are extremely unhappy with the forthcoming April price rises in their services.

Well l am not one of them Sirius as to me they are very impressive figures indeed seeing we are in a huge economic slump and also facing huge competition from the likes of BT and Sky..

Re: Virgin Media's quarterly and full year results.

With these type of figures it quite clear that Virgins strategy is working but a few more channels and more Tivo functionality would not go amiss to start off with.

Re: Virgin Media's quarterly and full year results.

Maybe now they could either cancel the price rises (unlikely), extend their cable network, or have more money on the table for negotiations with Sky over channels like Sky F1 HD...Just a thought.

Re: Virgin Media's quarterly and full year results.

Skynews has just said ( Literally 1 minute ago) that Virginmedia are creating 600 mostly call center jobs due to demand for its services.

No mention of the closing of Albert dock though, that's going to leave a sour taste for a few Albert dock employees.
