      Any problems switching from cable to sky?

      Hi all,
      recently switched from Virgin to Sky. For me its been a good move. I got a cable switching pack from Sky and sent all the letters of to Virgin. I'm near the end of my 30 days but have not heard anything from Virgin yet. Before I phone Virgin, I wondered if anybody had any problems switching ie has Virgin given you the run around?

      Cheers

      Steve

      If you are on cable and not receiving Virgin over the phone line, there is nothing Virgin can do to stop you. You could in fact, run both at once, which is not a bad idea, until you get Sky up and running.

      I just rang up Virgin and gave them my notice, then they collected my equipment and Sky came the next day....simple.

      As it happens, got a letter from them today saying sorry for the delay in getting in touch with me. Arranged for items to be collected.
