Its a minefield. I have Virgin and its all about the package price, so if i try to drop say my landline. the price of the broadband and tv will go up. Looking at you monthly cost if you really want to trim it down all i can suggest is get rid of the sports. Speak to virgin and tell them your struggling, sometimes they are quite helpful unfortunately sometimes they're not.

I've been thinking of trying to rid of the phone part ( which has free? general freeview tv progs on)- no packages
Now watch football by internet and bought a NOW tv box for watching various sky entertainment (35 with 6 months free viewing then 5? a month) I only watch the odd BBC,ITV etc now and againPhone wise I use vonage connected through the router 10 a month all local calls free or on O2 by mobilea packagethat top up 10 a month with local calls from my address free and still are in credit for my 10 - I often have 50/60 availale for other calls

Before you try anyone else, try this little tip. Three weeks ago I was paying Virgin Media 65 for 60mb broadband, XL TV and medium use phone I,e free evening and weekends only. I phoned to complain about an issue with my TV which they sorted out, then enquired about the planned upgrade to 100mb Broadband speeds which is due. The man (bear in mind this is an Asian call centre) looked at the planned upgrade and said it would be happening in September. He then looked at my overall package.......by the the end of the call I had an upgrade to 152mb broadband speed plus an upgraded router for 10 less until September when it will revert back to the 65 per month deal. This is because I'm a valued customer. It pays to talk to someone at Virgin as this is not the first time I've been left happily speechless.
Hope this helps.

Last season I got Sky Sports 1HD for 17 per month, but for the broadband speed I may plan on getting a Now TV box and use that for streaming...just a thought.

You only get a good SKY deal as a newbie - they will shaft you to b*ggery and back next year and even more the years after - my 32 SkyHD package got in 2010 - is now a horrifying 60 in 2014 - no phone no broadband....
