I'm moving to a new flat in a few days and I will lose Hyperoptics. My wife has asked me to get her regular TV so that she can learn more about the local culture and television. She is trying to get into script writing in the UK so she wants a more representative view. I have never had a TV licence or cable before and don't know how they compare. I can get a colour TV licence for £150.50 annually. The best bundle deal I can find is the Virgin Player bundle with Player TV (Virgin TV V6 box and Over 70 channels) and VIVID 100 fibre broadband Talk Weekends for £32 a month for 12 months. Do I need a TV licence with the virgin bundle or is it one or the other? Freeview offers 70 TV channels, 15 HD* channels, and more than 30 radio stations. Does the Virgin Player TV offer anything extra in terms of content or would I just be paying more for PVR? If I go with Freeview I can get the VIVID 100 + Talk Weekends for £27 a month. My favourite channels are Dave and the BBC.
