Netflix and Tivo

I have registered with netflix. Is there is an easy way to setup the Tivo box to stream from my computer which has VirginMedia broadband i.e. same provider?  One has to be registered with a tivo account.  How does one register on the tivo.com website.  This is the first step to getting onto tivo.com/manage to setup the Tivo to receive streams from netflix.

 

Thanks

The site you are on is for the US TiVo - not the VirginMedia TiVo

 

Netflix is not available via VirginMedia TiVo

Sadly not, Virgin Media's implementation of the TiVo only offers a subset of the features the US boxes provide while also lacking basic features many UK STB users expect.

 

You can get a Roku or Apple TV whcih will let you access Netflix on your TV but obviously that's an additional expense to fill a gap in the TiVo's capabilities.
