Virgin carry the Red Button+ and the BBC Sports app. This means that you still have the option of extra content from the BBC for Sports, however as I'm not sure what Sky currently carry, the content may be different
Just checked and there is a red button option on my Sky Sports channels. Right now it just brings up a Sky message stating that there is no red button content available at this time. I also vaguely remember watching via the red button in the past. I would need to try when there was something available before giving a definite answer. Perhaps others who have tried more recently will comment.
Okay, there is live tennis currently showing on Sky Sport 2. I have checked the red button and this gives the choice of multiple matches all of which can be selected and viewed successfully. I have tried this on both me Tivo and V+ boxes with the same successful result. I cannot comment on the latest V6 box but have no reason to think it would be any difference as it runs the same system as my old Tivo.
Make sure you get the new V6 box as part of your package as the old Tivo is pants since the last software update. Runs like a snail doesn't. You should also have a 14 day cooling off period so make sure you check everything is okay during that time including TV operation, catch up TV and Broadband speed especially in the evening.
Edit: Bump not required now as I have checked as above and red button works. By bump I meant add a new post on the date required to bring the thread back to the top of the forum.
No problem, glad to help. It is always preferable to double check anything you are told by sales reps from any company. While I am sure most are completely honest and helpful, some are not always fully informed about competitors products and others can be swayed by the need to meet targets.
