Just wondering now that Virgin media is now a part of UPC, I wonder will VM start supplying the Horizon box as this box is basically the Cable box, router and telephone service all in one box. Seems to be a bit more advanced than TiVo,
Virgin Media recently extended the deal with TiVo http://www.broadbandtvnews.com/2015/04/02/virgin-confirms-tivo-extension/
However you have to remember that the current TiVo box was designed around 6 years ago, so who knows what Virgin Media & TiVo will come up with in the future.
To be clear, UPC is part of Virgin Media, not the other way round. And Virgin Media is owned by Liberty Global - http://www.digitaltveurope.net/419411/upc-ireland-to-rebrand-as-virgin-media/
