I will be moving
HD on Virgin is improving all the time too, only 11 channels short of Sky now and red button sports is now active although I don't buy sky shit so haven't tested it myself.

If you have V+ already they will install it for free in another room with no additional monthly charge when you take TiVo. To be honest that was the part of the deal that got me.

Oh and Dave, original question, 49 for the 500Gb.

To get Anytime+ you have to have their broadband. I'm having a spat about it right now.

Cable braodband can go way higher. All that to get Anytime+. A switch to Virgin looks likely.

Anyone tell me the pros and cons, Virgin v Sky. What is Tivo.

they want 93 quid a month for XP phone, 1Tb Tivo (XL + sky sports) and 50Mbit Broadband - less than I pay now

149 activation is mental though

As the Tivo is linked to a router well I am guessing it is, can it view and play stuff on the network?

All the deals exclude the Tivo in the mailshot. Might see what I can get on the phone.

I think Sky is losing at the moment.

What are Virgin like on downloading? Traffic restriction?

Virgin products are marvellous in my experience. If you have a problem, however, then they have the worst customer service on the planet.

For internet and TV though, they were terrific.

Nope unfortunately not yet, you can browse YouTube though as my kids have just found out! They give the TiVo an additional 10mb all to itself.

Had Virgin's 50Mbit broadband installed last Thursday. I am pleased to report that after spending the last five days talking to technical incompetents in their Indian call centre we are finally getting a download speed approaching 2.1Mbit and a 'super hub' that now only drops all wireless connections about three times a day.

What galls is I dumped a rock solid 17Mbit service from BT to experience this heap of complete shyte.
