These are the options for receiving your bill:

1. eBilling:

The benefits of eBilling are:

1. You can view and pay your itemised bill online.
2. No postal delays in receiving your bill.
3. You can view previous bills for the last 12 months.

2. Paper billing:

If you wish to opt out of eBilling and return to receiving paper bills then please complete the following steps


1. Log in to your My Virgin Media account
2. In the 'Bills & Payments' menu select 'Change my billing options'
3. Choose the option to 'Switch to paper billing'.


You will now be opted out of eBilling and will begin receiving paper bills again. Direct Debit customers who choose to revert back to receiving paper bills will only receive a paper bill if the amount on the most recent bill is different to the previous bill.

If you need a paper bill to make a payment you can order a Payzone card from our Customer Care team at our Contact Us page.

It will not include the details of individual calls or movie rentals.


To request an itemised or non-itemised bill you can contact our Customer Care team at our Contact Us page.

When will I receive my bill?

Bills are sent to you every month on either the 7th, 14th, 21st or 28th of the month.

Payment is due 14 days after your bill date so keep an eye on your paper bill or online account as this date will not change.


This date is your Bill Date and you will receive your bill within one week of this date. If you pay by Direct Debit, you will only receive a bill from us if your billing amount changes. You can opt to stop receiving a paper bill and to view all of your bills online by simply going to My Virgin Media and registering for eBilling.


Your bill shows charges from the date of your installment up to your current bill date, and then for the coming one or two months. A pro-rata charge appears on your bill if there has been any change to your service between bills. If you upgrade your services before your next bill, you will see a pro-rata charge which covers the period from your upgrade to your next bill.


Please Note: You are billed in advance as our service is not a metered supply but a continuous service. We charge for the supply of the service - not the usage. Similar to utilities such as telephone companies, supply charges are billed in advance.
