On our wavelength

Hi 

Had email from virgin free upgrade to 360 from v6 so that i get sky sports +  question i have two v6 boxes in my contract can i upgrade just one to see if we like it or do i have to upgrade both boxes and get two 360 boxes

As i am unsure if its best to stay with V6 boxes,

Again can i have one 360 box and one V6 box

Fundamentally TV360 & V6 are totally different TV platforms, with many substantial differences between them - you cannot mix boxes on the same subscription and must either convert both or convert neither.

Opinions vary wildly and TV360 is a very "marmite" system, there are pros & cons both ways.

If you want SkySports+ now, or would like Disney+, Paramount+ or AppleTV, then you're likely better off on TV360. On the flip-side, I still can't work out where the current Sky Sports HD multi-screen (as used on F1 & tennis) stops & "Sky Sports+" takes over - and the current multiscreen is coming to V6.

If you're a heavy user of recordings & the series-link/watchlist functionality on V6, you will struggle with TV360. But there's plenty of arguments on both sides and just as plenty of past threads!

360 is a completely different system from V6 so both boxes would have to change over.  If you really need some of the TiVo features then stay where you are.   Plenty of pros and cons on various threads here.
