4K Set-top Box with the price increase

Seeing as you have just lumped another increase onto my monthly bill (how many a year?) I think it would be a good idea if you sent me your new 4K Set-top box (public trial) to make up for it so I can use VM on my 4K television.

I'll wait for the courier to arrive with it in due course.

Thank you in advance for sending it.

Paul.

Re: 4K Set-top Box with the price increase

The Virgin van parked close to my house today at the bottom of my street.

Guess what?

He didn't bring me a 4K Tivo box...

Re: 4K Set-top Box with the price increase

4K television arrives this morning.

Still, no Tivo 2.


When are we going to get proper news about this STB?

It seems to be taking an eternity with regards the new box,whilst BT and Sky have it and enjoying the new better quality,we are left behind,come on Virgin media,break the silence and give us some news and look after your customers

virgin media are quick enough to put prices up though

They tell me patience is a virtue.

If you can't wait, you, as you have said, have two options.

Go try BT or Sky and see if the very limited 4K material that is available is enough to justify your expenditure on a 4K TV.

IMHO It's too early yet to invest in this technology.

Re: 4K Set-top Box with the price increase

there's a tiny bit of 4k on netflix and on amazon video - so If you have a smart  TV with the relevant apps you could trial that - to see if you can actually see any difference.

 There is no 4K on freeview, probably never will be due to bandwidth- there is some 4k football from Sky, BT but again - could you see the difference , as that stuff is already way way overpriced.

 what's your TV screen size & viewing distance. There are web sites that can compute with that & predict whether you'd even notice... consensus is , on anything smaller than 50 inch TV - forget it.

Re: 4K Set-top Box with the price increase

I have watched Netflix 4K and also a couple of movies in 4K.

 

Yes they look fantastic - so much so that HD looks almost poor afterwards.

 

Now I need that V6 STB sooner rather than later so I can watch the football in UHD

Re: 4K Set-top Box with the price increase

it is very likely that when any new boxes arrive, they will  be offered only to the cash rich customers on the highest tier packages, and used as an incentive to up sell.

if you are still on your trusty old 50 - 70 Mbs deal- go to the back of the queue Smiley Happy

 and it would be kind of embarrassing to launch a 4K box without having even one 4K content channel.

I bet that sky / BT would play hardball in any give us your 4K sport to resell negotiations, and' there'd be a hefty surcharge to pass on to us costomers
