As a long-time Virgin Media V+ customer, I’ve been waiting what seem like forever for them to offer HD channels (the part-time BBC HD doesn’t count in my opinion) and finally it looks like they’ve done it.
I’ve made my feelings quite clear in the past that I thought Virgin’s HD offerings were nothing short of a scam, with zero content other than a handful of on-demand offerings but by August we should have FX, National Geographic, Living and MTV Networks. The reason I’ve stuck with Virgin Media for all this time though is because the service is generally spot on with only a couple of niggles over the years that have resolved themselves.
In all, this really makes Virgin Media a serious choice for anyone looking for fantastic TV and movie content plus high speed Internet (whispers suggest 50Mbps in the very near future!). Hopefully they’ll use this momentum to introduce even more channels and not just sit on these for a couple of years more.
