360 Multiroom Details

So just gone live this morning after a few 'communication issues' and due to V6 shortages have ended up with a 360 box.

So first impressions are good but I can tell its it the early stages of release,

So the first information on 360 service talks about the multiroom box (wireless one) and now I'm wondering how one goes about getting one and also how much these cost one off or monthly.



If I've helped let me know 🙂

I give 'my' experience to help where possible.

The mini boxes aren't wireless. They still need coax.

Re: 360 Multiroom Details

Once the 360 service is officially launched then you can add another box to your account.

The current cost of that (with V6) is £10 per month with no upfront fee. If you want a third box, it's another £5 a month.

Would love some confirmation on this, I'm pretty sure they are meant to be wireless, engineer who did my installation seemed to think likewise.

Thanks for the info, I'm guessing this is on an 18 month term or is it 30 days?

Also would like to confirm the case with how the boxes connect for TV service.

Re: 360 Multiroom Details

The mini boxes are capable of wireless as they are used this way in Europe with other Liberty providers. Virgin UK have taken the stance of using Coax for live TV to not impact on you if you have WiFi issues. The WiFi and Ethernet is only used for the internet functions like catchup, On Demand and Apps like Netflix etc.

Re: 360 Multiroom Details

Not quite right.

In all regions, the combination of Horizon box and mini box require all boxes connected to the co-ax.

This cable TV.

In some regions, there is a different mini box which only requires an internet connection, no cable connection.

This is NOT cable TV but a different IPTV solution.
