Sky F1 on virgin media cost ?

Every year about this time as the Formula One season starts , i ring Virgin and get channel 516 Sky Sports F1 channel added for about 9 months . Usually £15 to £20 a month .   I noticed earlier this week Sky were advertising a price of £18 a month for their own users . 

Have just rung Virgin , to be told it is the "standard price of £31.75 a month with no discounts available this year " . Anyone know any different ?

    It’s not really £18 a month on sky is it, you need to take their signature package at least at £15.. on virgin it is expensive. On now tv there was an offer of £18.99pm for all sports channels to some users.  Now tv may be your cheapest official option there’s offer to new users of £20 month for 9 months for all sports channels. £25 if you add in boost although if you cancel the boost you may get a lower offer to keep that
