Virgin Media opens its newest store on London’s Oxford Street tomorrow, showcasing the first  public demonstration of 3D TV in the UK.
This will be the 21st new retail destination opened by Virgin Media this year, bringing the number of own-branded locations across the country to 44.

Customers visiting the new Oxford Street store tomorrow will be offered demonstrations of ultrafast fibre optic broadband, TV on demand, V+ HD boxes, Virgin branded Freedom netbooks and the latest mobile phones.

Customers can also go in the draw to win a grand prize of a Virgin Media bundle worth more than £1300, including 50Mb broadband, a V+ HD box with channel subscriptions, a landline phone package and a Freedom netbook.

Virgin Media executive director of consumer sales Peter Taddeo said: “We’re delighted to establish a significant presence for Virgin Media on the UK’s busiest high street. Our store has been designed to give customers the chance to try before they buy, so they can get a great idea of the quality and range of entertainment and communications services Virgin Media has to offer. For the very first time we’re also showcasing exciting 3D television which I hope will give people a fun break from the hectic rush of Christmas shopping.”
