With the Euro 2024 tournament kicking off next month, Virgin Media has launched a blockbuster deal for new and returning customers. For the next week only, you can choose between a generous £250 discount on your internet and telly bills or a free 43-inch LG 4K television when you sign up for select Virgin Media bundles.

If you pick the £250 bill credit, Virgin Media will discount your bills each month until you've used the allowance.

You're unlikely to pay anything for your full-fibre broadband and television package for three to four months of your new contract, depending on the bundle you've picked. For those who already own a 4K Smart TV or who want a bigger screen size than the 43-inch panel included in this latest giveaway.

The free flatscreen television on offer from Virgin Media is an LG 4K Smart TV with a 43-inch screen. The model — 43UR73006LA.AEKQ — has an RRP of £379.99, although it's sometimes cheaper online.

You could always pick the LG TV and sell it since it's worth more than the bill credit Virgin Media is offering. Whatever you decide to do, you'll need to place your order before Monday May 27, 2024 or you'll miss out.

LG's 43-inch Smart TV packs an LED panel with a 4K resolution, also known as Ultra HD. It comes preloaded with apps for popular streamers, including Netflix, NOW, BBC iPlayer, ITVX, My5, and Prime Video, to name just a few


To make its latest offer more tempting, Virgin Media has waived its usual £35 set-up fee — so switching to the fibre broadband provider will be completely free. Virgin Media says its one-off £35 payment is designed to cover the cost of any engineer visits or support for the duration of your 18-month contract.

Virgin Media’s free 4K TV isn’t available with every plan it offers, so you’ll need to pick between a few select plans. The bundles that are eligible for the £250 bill credit of free TV are as follows:

Bigger Movie Combo Bundle

As the name suggests, this bundle arrives with over 200 channels, including the complete Sky Cinema package and 11 dedicated kids’ channels. Everything can be watched on the included Virgin TV 360 set-top box or on your phone or tablet with the companion app. You’ll also get ultrafast fibre broadband with average download speeds of 132Mbps, and free weekend calls to UK numbers.

Bigger Sports HD Combo Bundle

If you’re looking for live sports coverage, the Bigger Sports HD Combo has you covered. It comes with all Sky Sports channels alongside over 195 other paid- and free-to-watch channels. You’ll get a slightly faster broadband connection with this bundle, boasting average download speeds of 264Mbps as well as free weekend calls to UK numbers.

Biggest Combo

Take delivery of a Virgin TV 360 set-top box with all Sky Sports and Sky Cinema channels to watch alongside over 210 other paid- and free-to-watch channels. If that isn’t enough to keep you occupied, there’s also a Netflix subscription included too. When it comes to broadband, expect a fibre connection with an average download speed of 132Mbps and free weekend calls.

Mega Volt Bundle

There’s not a lot missing from this jam-packed bundle from Virgin Media. You’ll have over 230 paid- and free-to-watch channels on the TV 360 set-top box, as well as Sky Sports and Sky Cinema in HD. You'll also enjoy an ad-free Netflix subscription too. It comes with one of the speedier broadband connections, with average download speeds topping 514Mbps and an O2 SIM card with a 10GB data allowance and unlimited calls and texts.

Following the merger between Virgin Media and O2 back in June 2021, anyone who signs-up for Virgin Media will be eligible for O2 Priority. The loyalty scheme offers discounted cinema tickets, coffees and lunch deals from the biggest high street chains, as well as early access to gig tickets.

There's a 14-day cooling off period with all of the above deals, so you'll be able to downgrade your bundle, tweak the fibre broadband speeds, or walk away entirely if you're not satisfied.

Virgin Media has its own nationwide broadband network, which is available in over 16 million homes. It's completely separate from BT-owned Openreach, which is used by broadband suppliers like BT, EE, Sky, TalkTalk, and Plusnet to connect customers to the internet.

Virgin Media offers full-fibre broadband speeds to all of its 16 million customers, with top speeds sitting at around 1Gbps — that's 14x faster than the average broadband speed across the UK


Switching from an Openreach-operated broadband connection to Virgin Media will become infinitely easier in the coming months as rival telecom brands have agreed to adopt a new so-called "one touch" system that will bring parity across all full-fibre networks in the UK for the first time.

Virgin Media uses a different technology, which offers download speeds of over 1,100Mbps at every address on its network. In comparison, Openreach is halfway through planned upgrades to connect millions of properties to next-generation full-fibre broadband.

All Virgin Media customers will be supplied with a Wi-Fi router compatible with the latest Wi-Fi 6 wireless standard, something that's only recently come to Vodafone customers — and is stillmissing for millions of BT broadband customers across the UK.
