Virgin TV Box
Virgin Media now offer three different set-top boxes, from the V HD Box which offers HD channels without having to pay an extra monthly subscription and is 3D-ready to the Virgin TiVo Box which is available in 2 sizes and can record, pause and rewind live TV like any other PVR but also offers more intelligent ways to search and browse programmes. The TiVo box is also unique in that it has three tuners, unlike the Sky+HD Box and the BT Vision Box which have only two, so you can record 2 channels while watching another or record 3 channels while watching a previously recorded show.
