Virgin Media iTunes vouchers on offer to new customers

Virgin Media making some interesting ground at the moment. It was not so long ago they were in the news for being subjected to more blocking orders re websites promoting copyright infringement. We saw a lot of whingeing on Twitter about this and the traffic to our “how to bypass the Virgin Media filters” post shot up again as it periodically does.

Today the news is about how Sky have been ordered to hand over customer data of people suspected of torrenting movies. Can’t be long before the ask the same of Virgin.

At the same time Virgin have just released an offer of a £50 iTunes voucher for new customers. This is sending out the right signals to end users. Don’t download. Buy.

I’m a Spotify man meself and not an Apple fanboi but that’s a different story.
