Get a free 4K TV when you sign up to Virgin Media

A good deal if you’re looking for a broadband and TV package

Virgin Media has been a little slow out of the blocks on the January sales, but this is quite an offer if you’re seeking a new broadband provider.
 
From now until Wednesday 8 January at 23:59, new customers signing up to the three most expensive TV, broadband and phone bundles will be entitled to a free 43in 4K LG television set
 
If you’ve decided you don’t want another TV, then you can exchange that for £150 bill credit – but given Virgin says the TV has an RRP of £329, it’d probably be a mistake. 
 
Although it’s a nice offer, it’s worth noting that these bundles aren’t exactly low-cost. The cheapest way to get the TV is to buy the ‘bigger bundle + movies’ which comes with over 250 TV channels, 100mbps broadband and a dedicated phone line. It costs £62 per month, for a total of £744 over the course of a 12-month contract.
 
Next up is the ‘bigger oomph bundle + movies’ which is basically the same, but doubles the broadband speed to 200mbps and throws in a 2GB data SIM card on the Virgin Mobile network. It’ll set you back £70 per month, for a total cost of £840 over the 12-month contract.
 
Finally, there’s Virgin Media’s top-of-the-line, total-overkill package: the ‘ultimate oomph bundle’. That comes with over 270 channels including Sky Sports HD and Sky Cinema HD, cable broadband with an average speed of 516mbps, a phone line, and a SIM card with unlimited data, minutes and texts. It’s yours for £89 per month, or £1,068 over the course of a 12-month contract.
 
Note that although all three of these are 12-month contracts, the price of each will increase after a year. The price jumps to £93 per month for the ‘bigger bundle + movies,’ £101 per month for the ‘bigger oomph bundle + movies’ and £139 per month for the ‘ultimate oomph’ package. But again, there’s nothing stopping you cancelling at that point and seeing what else is available in January 2021.
