How to get the BBC Sounds app

I have had an email telling me that there is now a BBC Sounds app, but it doesn't appear on my TIVO box. How to I get the apps to refresh? (I have already tried restarting the box.)

HI igw,

 

If you have a Virgin TV V6 box, powered by TiVo®:

 

Press Home on your remote

Select Apps & Games

Select All Apps 

Select BBC Sounds

I have a TIVO box , but not the V6 one. If I go to Apps & Games > All Apps, the BBC Sounds one isn't there, although other BBC ones are such as iPlayer, or BBC Sports.

Looks like it is only available on the V6 box. ^Chris

That's disappointing. It would have been helpful if publicity email had explained that and if it had said so on the website.

Re: How to get the BBC Sounds app

It’s unlikely the standard TiVO will be getting many more apps. The boxes are struggling performance wise with the ones already installed. Unless you are not a VM Broadband customer, there is nothing to stop you upgrading to a V6. It’s due to get a slick new operating system soon, & if you renegotiate your deal the V6 is now standard with all new contracts.

I am a VM broadband customer, but I would not want to replace my existing TIVO box at the moment as I have so much stuff recorded on it that I want to be able to keep.
