What is the Bigger Sports Combo Bundle?

  • On Sky Sports, you’ll be able to watch 128 live Premier League matches in the upcoming season. There’s also live EFL, Formula 1 racing, golf, international cricket, NFL, and more.
  • On TNT Sports (previously known as BT Sport), you’ll be able to watch 52 live Premier League matches in the upcoming season. There’s also European football (including the UEFA Champions League & Europa League), MotoGP, UFC, WWE, and more.

For access to both Sky Sports, you can get Virgin Media’s Bigger Sports Combo Bundle (sometimes also known as the Bigger Combo Bundle + Sports). This is available for just £65 per month.

You’ll get all of the following things included on Bigger Sports Combo Bundle:

  • Access to all 8 Sky Sports channels in HD. This includes Sky Sports Premier League, Sky Sports Football, Sky Sports F1, Sky Sports Cricket, Sky Sports Golf, and more. You’ll normally pay £7 per month extra for Sky Sports in HD. However, this is currently included at no extra cost.
  • 195+ channels on Virgin TV 360. This includes Sky Max, Sky Witness, Discovery, National Geographic, Comedy Central, and more. You can also pause, rewind and record live TV with enough storage for up to 500 hours of recordings on your box.
  • M250 Fibre Broadband. This gives you average download speeds of 264Mbps and average upload speeds of 25Mbps.
  • Weekend chatter. You’ll also get a Virgin Media landline included, with unlimited weekend calls to other UK landlines.

As of September 2023, the TNT Sports channels are no longer included in the Bigger Sports Combo deal. You’ll need to add the ‘TNT Sports Collection’ which costs an extra £18 per month on Virgin Media.

Switching to Virgin Media

If you’re currently using another broadband or TV provider, it’s easy switching your service to Virgin Media.

Start by ordering your Bigger Sports Combo bundle online. When you do this, you’ll be given a choice of possible installation dates. Normally, a Virgin Media engineer will come around to install the service for you, unless you’ve recently been connected to the Virgin Media network in the past (in which case, you might be able to install it yourself using a QuickStart kit).

You’ll need to tell your old provider that you’re moving to Virgin Media and that you’d like to cancel the old service with them.
