Well @ 12:26 today my Virgin Tv died. Only terestrial channels are working with all the others saying ‘not currently subscribed’ tried reboot of box and no change, date on box says 1st Jan which is bad. After a bit of digging (with no help from virgin as all their status pages are down) I’ve found out that it’s a NATIONAL problem and all the computers at Virgin are down. Emails are down as well, they hope to have it fixed in about a hour. Also apparently it’s a power problem affecting the ex-Telewest areas.
Users in Wolverhampton, Bradford, Birmingham, Essex, West Lothian have all reported loss of TV but it appears broadband is still working ok (mine is as awell)
