You can watch streaming channels on TV Anywhere without your TiVo being connected to your Superhub, you just don't get the ability to use the app as a remote or start programs playing back on the TiVo.
So unless you want those particular features you don't need the powerline adaptors.
Thank you for your answer, please excuse my ignorance but when you say streaming does that mean I will still be able to get all the programs Virgin advertise that I have paid for ? and have you any idea where on the Virgin site I might find instructions how to set this up.
Not every channel available via your TiVo® will be available on TV Anywhere. When you download the TV Anywhere app or go to the TV Anywhere website via a computer/laptop, the available channels to stream will have a WiFi symbol next to them:
You can see in this image that itv has the WiFi symbol next to it, but BBC two doesn't. So you would be able to watch Lorraine, but not Caught Red Handed via TV Anywhere.
Also have a look at our Help Pages on our main website: www.virginmedia.com/help Just enter TV Anywhere into the search box and you will find numerous help articles covering different aspects of TV Anywhere.
