Is V6 as good as Sky?

I am into the last 3 months of my contract with VM and we decided months ago to return to Sky, However an engineer suggested we look at the V6 box before we changed so is it as good as the Sky box? I did sign up for a possible upgrade but of course have heard nothing from VM since.

6 tuners versus 4.
Automatically resolves recording clashes for you.
Wishlists, Series Link+.
Netflix (in 4K).
Every extra box adds more recording capacity (another 1TB space, another 6 tuners).
BT Sport at no extra charge.


It's not Sky...

TV: XL+SkySports V6

I agree - it depends what course your horse is on.

Re: Is V6 as good as Sky?

In terms of how quick the box is and in terms of features - it is at the very least a very good contender.

I have been very, very impressed by the V6 box.

Re: Is V6 as good as Sky?

I am ringing tomorrow I think to cancel my virgin to move to Sky.
Went to a friends yesterday and the Sky Q was great.
I have been with Virgin for 10 years and I don't see why I have to pay to get a new box when the current box is slow and unreliable.

And according to the BBC1 Watchdog programme just before Christmas, there's been several people disappointed with the Sky Q offering.
