Engineer installing Tivo just mentioned EOS

Have VM installing broadband and Tivo at our new house today. He has just mentioned that a new box was imminent. There's something about these installers that means they're incapable of communicating any information, but I eventually got from him that he was referring to a replacement of the TIVO box.

Having googled a bit, it seems he's talking about EOS.

Is there any scope for getting one of these new boxes when they come out, or am I now lumbered with the TIVO box for the length of my contract?

hiya @Garnett welcome to the virginmedia community forum, possible the engineer was reffering to the V6 tivo e.g. -> http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/new-product/digital-home/virgin-media-tivo-2016-4k-box-release-date-specs... would need to wait until public release, and more than likely will have a fee to upgrade to the newer box.

Re: Engineer installing Tivo just mentioned EOS

Thanks Paul - do you think I should have decided to hold off until it was released?

Re: Engineer installing Tivo just mentioned EOS

not even sure if it has been beta tested on the virginmedia network yet.. and normally they don't do a national release e.g. any customer can order 1, regions done in stages

Re: Engineer installing Tivo just mentioned EOS

Is that a free upgrade as in an extra £10 a month on a subscription?

Re: Engineer installing Tivo just mentioned EOS

nothing official been released if there is going to be a fee to upgrade, but I'm sure there will be.

Re: Engineer installing Tivo just mentioned EOS

Tivo is old technology which VM is desperate to eek as much out of as possible.

The new box is Im sure a while off yet, wait tiil your contract ends and then tell leave unless they upgrade you for nothing
