Virgin Deals Make TiVo Affordable

Virgin TiVo Box

The Virgin Media TiVo service was launched in 2010 to a select few existing customers and is now available to all on some very affordable packages, partly thanks to the 6 months half price deal that Virgin Media are running at the moment.

The TiVo service revolves around the revolutionary new TiVo box, which is a very intelligent PVR (personal video recorder – like a V+ box or a Sky+ box) which lets you create a WishList of TV you want to watch by actor/director/title keywords and then finds all of the relevant content with those keywords. Here’s one of the clever things – it doesn’t just search the channels in your TV package but the catch-up from the last 7 days, On Demand content and web video content like YouTube. The box has its own 10Mb broadband connection built in so you can stream TV from the web without slowing down the regular broadband for the rest of the family, and recording-wise it comes in two sizes – 1TB and 500GB – so you have plenty of space for recordings.
