Last date to use V+ box?

Hi, we were emailed by Virgin we needed to change from V+ box as it would stop working in October 2016. We have ordered the Tivo box but we are delaying transfer as already have a slow, sticky TiVo box in another room.
What is the last date we can use the V+ box?
Thanks!

Re: Last date to use V+ box?

If you have a Scientific Atlanta V+ box, which I assume you have, it will continue to work. However, Virgin are moving some channels to a new compression standard that your box cannot decode, so you will gradually start losing the channels you pay for on that box.
