Features of Virgin TiVo

Virgin have referred to it as 'turbocharging your TV' among other things, and the TiVo service has loads of amazing features - here are the key points;

  • >> Record three programmes, watch a fourth Like the V HD and V+HD boxes the TiVo box has 3 tuners, meaning you can record 2 channels while watching a third or even record 3 channels while watching a previously recorded show. Great for a seriously telly-addicted family!
  • >> WishList Like Series Link but better, WishList lets you save a keyword search for a show, genre or actor and every time a programme fits the bill TiVo will record it for you. What's more once you’ve recorded a show, the TiVo box records every episode of that show until you tell it not to.
  • >> A great way to search Search by title, actor or director then once you’ve found what you’re looking for you can add similar programmes straight to your WishList
  • >> Web apps on the TV TiVo has apps to let you do your eBay, Facebook, Twitter and more through the TV
  • >> Built-in broadband The TiVo Box has its own 10Mb broadband connection so you can access web TV without affecting the broadband for the rest of the household
