Okay, well that's a lie and I wouldn't recommend that, but TiVo is great entertainment! About 6 months ago we decided to have Virgin Media’s Tivo box installed. My parents have had Sky Plus for years and I’ve always liked the idea of being able to record and pause television shows, but with our...

The TiVo brand, launched in 1999, is massive in North America's competitive DVR (Digital Video Recorder, also known as PVR - Personal Video Recorder) market, but is by far the number one choice for consumers in the States. So it was only logical that TiVo try to extend their brand into other...

Who Provides It? The TiVo box is made by the company TiVo and provided by the company Virgin Media as an upgrade to their V+ Box. TiVo has been around for ages but their partnership with Virgin Media to provide their services to Virgin Media customers is a fairly new one. Price and Availability...

It has now been 5 months since we moved to our new home and it was almost a pre-requisite that TiVo would be one of the first improvements that we wanted (or should I say my wife wanted) and had been thought about many times over the year since Virgin first introduced their new black box...

“Needed!”

Slow mo option, recording improvements, apps

None

I had finally convinced my parents to upgrade to TiVo as being a student with my college a long journey away I can have a lot of free time or very little so when I do I want to be able to do what I want to do swiftly. I could not do this before. Regarding our internet we had a 2 upload and 2...

“Recording stuff”

published 18/09/2012

Easy to operate

Can be slow

We have been Virgin customers for quite a while now with TV, broadband and phone products bundled with them however every so often I go through the charade of threatening to leave so that we can either get the package cost reduced or to get some other deal from them, it helps that there are...

We have used Virgin Media for our TV, broadband and telephone access for a couple of years now. About a year ago, we changed from a standard Virgin Media box to a TiVo one. We have a premium package (no sports channels or my boyfriend would never get up from the couch!) and a 500GB box. This...

Okay so I have been a member with Sky TV for a few years now. I recently realised that it would be much cheaper for me to switch over to virgin media as I already have their phone and broadband services. So that is exactly what I did, as I was looking at saving over £30 a month keeping the same...
