Re: TV Box Upgrade

Upgrades come at an extra charge for V HD or Tivo boxes  although there are plans to further upgrade later in the year.

Is that the one you got the broadband through at about 512K?  I thought they were all scrapped long ago.   Unless you don't have broadband I would have thought that would have been replaced when the speeds got to much for it to handle.  I remember getting a router and telling customer services I didn't want it as my internet was fast enough already and I didn't want another box.  However they had switched off the internet on the box so I had no choice...

... I am pretty sure that if you called retentions on 150 they could at least give you a V HD box.  Or even a 500GB Tivo box on a discounted package.  Even the V+ boxes have been recalled and replaced.
