Extra tv box

I want to add another box to my house in another room just a stardard box NOT A TIVO box

Does anyone know how much it would cost me to get fitted or if I can do it myself and how much a month after it would be on my bill

 

cheers

Gary

Re: Extra tv box

As far as I am aware the only options for an additional box ATM is a TiVo or a V6

Re: Extra tv box

The bad news is the standard box IS the TiVO. Indeed this will be superseded by the V6 in the coming years. VHD & V+HD boxes are only issued as fault replacements now as the middleware platform that runs them is working at its limits.

Additional boxes are a manned install, as the coaxial feed has to be split & extended, & the signal levels adjusted to cope with the additional hardware. Adding an additional box to an existing legacy package costs £11.50 a month. Adding one to one of the new packs costs £7.50 a month.
