TV streaming is taking over our living rooms, bedrooms, and basements. With all of the options out there you wonder why we need a traditional television service provider. The issue is that Rogers, Bell, and TELUS offer local programming and a normal schedule of programming. Virgin Mobile is looking at taking the next step with Virgin TV.
For just $35/month CAD you get 50 live channels. These channels are live and will interact the way you would with your current TV provider. The guide is set up in a manner we are all accustomed to and the basic packages come with these and more:
This is just a sample of the 50 channels you get with the basic package. If you wish to add on you are welcome to do so. Services like Crave, HBO, Hollywood Suite, Kids Suite, Starz, and many others are available at competitive pricing.
Virgin is asking for a bandwidth of 15Mbps (Megabits per second) or higher and unlimited internet. If you are shopping for Internet services as well then you are in luck with Virgin. You can get unlimited internet with 25 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload speed for $50 per month. This gets you unlimited Internet and a TV package for $85 CAD.
Let’s say you go for their top tier Internet speed which gives you 100 Mbps download and you upgrade your TV to include Crave + HBO + moves for $20 per month. Your Unlimited Internet and all your channels would cost you a total $125/month Canadian. Does Virgin TV seem like a great deal? To get started, download the app on the App Store or the Google Play store. The question is: How much are you paying for TV right now and how much better of a deal is this?
