Is a cable needed for extra boxes .

I am currently with sky q and am looking to change to virgin. I however dont want holes needed to be drilled through my office and bedroom wall for me to watch tv . Sky's multiroom boxes work via the wifi , I am ok with my main box needed to be wired but if te others need to be i will stick with sky . If this is the case why because the is obviously the technology their to be able to run multi room boxes of wifi as shon with sky .

Re: Is a cable needed for extra boxes .

Yes. All Virgin boxes have internal cable tuners, so need to be directly wired both with the existing TiVO based boxes & the new Horizon V360. That way the 6 main box tuners are not tied up with driving the remote boxes & can all be used for recording.

VM requires their coax to all TV boxes, V6 or Tivo, they also need connection to the VM hub by either Ethernet cable or WiFi. /
