The Benefits of Virgin Media - A Comparison with SKY

In the UK there is one clear winner when it comes to providing a television viewing service. This has to be Virgin Media. Although SKY has been around for quite a while; the service they offer has been improved upon by Virgin Media. Virgin Media have been on the market for just a couple of years, after taking over from Telewest who failed miserably in good service and also found themselves in a gigantic heap of debt. Since joining the market Virgin Media have invested much time and money into improving the service and in basically being better than SKY. So by saying Virgin is better than SKY you might be wondering if this is controversial or even a bias point of view? Perhaps it is, because I have been with Virgin since they took over - but lets look at the positive benefits and reasons for buying Virgin Media television packages, broadband, a telephone services - and why it is a better buy than SKY.

The Benefits of Virgin Media in comparison with SKY.

  • Virgin are a breath of fresh air in providing services that are continously improving andseem to be getting better and better all the time.
