ASA upholds complaint over Virgin Media 'half-price' offer

Wednesday 22 January 2014 | 10:57 CET | News
The UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has upheld a complaint filed against a direct mail promotion for Virgin Media offering half-price TV and calls until January next year. The complainant challenged whether the ad was misleading, because it did not initially make clear that the half price offer did not apply to the line rental charge. Virgin was told to make clear if line rental charges were excluded from their offers in future.
