Upscaling of channels

Hey virgin
Is it true that you upscale your SD channels via your tivo receivers. Or is it done on your servers? 😕

Virgin TV channels do not come through servers, as Cable TV is provided via linear channels (in the same way as Satellite & Terrestrial TV) & not via IPTV. If any upscaling takes place it will be at the STB, where everything is converted to whatever setting your TV works at (720p, 1080i etc).

Re: Upscaling of channels

I'm not sure what you mean.

Virgin Media broadcast many channels in both SD and HD on separate channels.
