Virgin Media on demand service status

What is your Virgin Media On Demand service status like at the moment? Customers love to watch TV, being it sports, movies, TV shows and more. It is basically a TV service where you can choose thousands of hours of programmes and movies etc. But when things go wrong this is a cause for complaints from customers.

Virgin Media on demand service status

On Demand problems occur and this could be down to Virgin Media cable broadband with slow speeds or complete outages, customers have in the past had problems accessing the On Demand movies list because there was a glitch with the system.

Virgin Media problems with On Demand can happen when there is an Internet outage, but cable TV can also go down when there is a problem with the exchange, which could lead back to your residence or the main box in your street.

Other faults can include blank screens, maintenance updates bringing the service down for a period of time. And apps not working where Virgin Media Anywhere is not accessible. Please do leave your Virgin Media On Demand status report here on Down Today.

    There’s something strange going on at Virgin Media….. Here
    in Harpenden, Herts, VM internet has been down 3 days last week and now
    the whole of this week. And judging by other posts on User Groups and
    Twitter, it is the same from Enfield to Luton to Hemel and Watford!! Whole region has multi-day outage. What is going on at VM? Have they been hacked? Virgin Media just gives platitudes.
    Mumbling “signal to noise ratio” problems and claiming not to know where the
    problem lies. Why are they so coy about the cause of this widespread
    outage? Fix promised each day every day, and now a text saying it will be
    another 2 days. They are treating us customers as fools. Completely
    unacceptable! Big brand damage here!

  • Steve

    Had enough. A complete weekend with no internet or cable tv. I pay over £100 a month for this . . . Not anymore. Anyone have any ideas for another provider? Even Sky are looking more favourable!

  • Mark

    Throughout the day my Virgin Media broadband WiFi has to be switched off and then back on again on my iMac. I lose the internet and the only way to get it working again is to click on the WiFi symbol and disconnect and then reconnect for it to work. This is happening like 20+ times a day.

  • Libby

    My broadband is so unreliable i can tell you. For me its the wireless and wired i am having problems with. Got to admit Virgin are great for responding on Twitter but still the problem is there.

  • Grace

    I got no WiFi at all in Bromley, this is useless and needs to sort it before i am gone. Rip off.

  • Colin

    I live in Christchurch UK and have problems with my Virgin Media services, mainly TV and Internet services. I was told by customer services things should be OK now but they are clearly not as i am sending this comment via 3G on my phone.

  • Jez

    Ment to have 50meg it’s not even hitting 2meg

  • Jez

    Crap speeds wtf going on

  • Ben Polhill

    I knew this would happen. I live in Crawley and have been having problems for months and months. Virgin have not helped at all. If it keeps up I will be changing service providers ’cause this is a bad joke.

  • Fairy

    My net is so slow its painful watching pages open up. I have normally about 20 windows open up at once to do with my work from my home office. I need fast internet and that is what i pay for, so please Richard Branson sort your team out.

  • Ethan Beck

    Glasgow, midnight+, internet completely down. Rebooted router twice over half hour. Still down. DHCP failed. Having to use mobile.

  • matthew excell

    You’ve got that too! Why does it keep thinking we’re ROBOTS?

  • matthew excell

    I can’t get into my emails either. My computer keeps thinking I’m a robot! I’m clearly NOT, and I need my emails to apply for jobs. PLEASE SORT THIS OUT!!

  • Vicksy

    Both my Virgin Media emails and Internet are down. Obvious emails will be down without broadband and i am just venting out my anger as i am so annoyed.

  • +1

    Gillinhgam Kent. No dial tone on phone (only turned on due to persistany nuisance calls to contact Virgin about web being out for 5 hours), no web, queued on 0845 number to be told no service ’til 12:00+ tomorrow. Chanced my arm about 22:00 to find it operational. Switching from £30 a month to £17 a month asap.

  • Lenny

    My channels on my Virgin Media box keeps getting stuck, not worth pressing the up or down channel button because when it does finally work it skips the amount you pressed.

  • Alison

    Really slow internet on both laptop and phone, but phone is a little quicker than the Internet.

  • Ant

    Virgin Media are having issues with mobile data at the moment, not too sure if this would have any effect opening on demand through your mobile device.

  • Teresa

    Hoe come all my Virgin Media On Demand stuff that I recorded keeps freezing when i try to watch it?
