Re: New TIVO - No viewing card

Viewing cards no longer necessary. Give it a day and if the movies and sports haven't appeared you'll have to ring it on on 150 (free) - TV faults. They'll sort it. And give you a credit for the time you haven't had the premium channels.

Hi mattyminionboy,

I just wanted to pop by and see how things are today?  I can see HowardML has called by to give you some good information which is awesome.

If you're still having any trouble with the movie channels, give us a shout and we can help further.

Re: New TIVO - No viewing card

matty minion boy as far as i know the technician or engineer can set that up the box and can sort the viewing channels but viewing card is no longer available through tivo like mine but i have the channels on mine but for sport and movies you most proberly have to pay extra for sport and movies plus what ever package you currently have on top so it sounds like they havent given you those extra channels unless you have another tv package
