    I read in one of the Sundays that when David Cameron had a problem with his Sky TV service he just had to ring a special number for action to be taken. Apparently Sky has an exclusive service for VIPS, politicians, showbiz types etc., who are given a special number to ring so they don't have to wait in line for hours on end like us poor peasants. They are even offered the equipment/installation free. If it's true, and I know you can't always believe what you read, then ordinary Sky customers are subsidising these "VIP" freebees. I wonder if VM offers the same service.

    Sky has given out its services to celebrity folk for free for ages. Makes good business sense because it likely leads to endorsements. I bet that up until recently Richard Branson was in the club!

    Dunno if Virgin offer the same thing.

    You should try and persuade Sky you are a celebrity... "I'm head of the local neighbourhood watch, a pivotal figure in my local community, and I will happily endorse Sky for a freebie service" ;-)

    Actually I am a VM customer, sorry didn't make it very clear, but if I ever change to Sky maybe I'll try your tip! Cheers.

    I doubt Richard Branson is using Virgin Media. He would have to reset his box a few times each week and rely on low quality feeds for on demand.
