Mini boxes

Hi

We have virgin 360 and I want to add a mini box to my bedroom tv, but trying to get any information about these seems impossible!

The chat bot sends me round in circles and when I rang up they didnt know what I was talking about.

Do these things actually exist and if so what do I have to do to get one ?

Thanks

Re: Mini boxes

Yes. if you have a 360 then a minibox is the multiroom solution. Needs a coax (for live TV) and 'net connection (for OnDemand, streaming & EPG updates) exactly the same as any other VM TV box, but doesn't have a hard drive so uses the main box for all recording functions.

Pricing does depend on your package and you're best calling VM to get specifics - but maybe ~£50-100 for install/activation and then maybe ~£10 a month ontop of your bundle, to replicate your existing package on that box.

The issue you'll have is that, if you don't currently have a coax connection point in the room you want the extra box, this will force a manned install to run the additional internal cabling - which VM aren't currently offering.

Re: Mini boxes

Thanks, so they do exist at least 🙂

The problem is whoever I speak to on the phone have no idea what Im talking about! Is there a specific 360 help team or anything

Re: Mini boxes

Mini boxes definitely do exist.

I don't know what package you are currently on but it maybe worth trying to get a good deal upgrading to ultimate oomph, if you get the mini box installed as part of the upgrade it might work out cheaper than adding one to your current package.

Re: Mini boxes

Hi Cmscratc, 

Thanks for your post 🙂
Our mini boxes do exist, I can feedback about this and our agents not being knowledgeable about products.

At the moment we are not installing second boxes as its non essential.
