Not necessary. Samsung V+ boxes have more modern hardware than the older Scientific Atlanta V+, so are capable of decoding MPEG4 TV streams that the Sky premium channels will be using shortly. While the Samsung V+ will also be phased out, there are still over a million boxes in circulation, so they will be around a while longer.

Thanks for that answer. The email I read that my neighbour received didn't state that the Samsung box would not be replaced so I was wondering why I couldn't book a date to have mine replaced. Suppose I'll just have to wait
