Adding an extra V6

I currently have two V6 boxes installed at my property and would like a third installed into the new part of the house.

Does anyone know how much it would be for the installation/activation and for the extra monthly subscription.  My contract with Virgin runs out in April this year so will I be better off waiting then to re-negotiate a better deal/package ?.

Re: Adding an extra V6

Extra box rent is £10 a month. Not sure what the activation is, but you would be looking around the £100 mark. The problem is the additional coax cable run you need. Virgin have suspended all but essential cabling work during lockdown, so you will be waiting a while.

You should also consider that new packages are likely to be on the Horizon (V360) rather than the TiVO platform. This can support either a master box with a single 1TB hard drive & 2 mini streaming boxes, or 2 hard drive boxes only to retain 2TB storage but you lose the third box..

Re: Adding an extra V6

I'd only add to @nodrogd answer, that existing customers renegotiating, should be ok to keep the TiVo/V6 platform for now.

In time that may well change, but we're not there just yet...

Extra V6 box

Hi guys wondering when Virgin media will be in a position to install a new V6 box in another part of my house. Currently have two but would like a third. Have been holding out for obviously quite a few months with regards to the Covid issue(s).

Re: Adding an extra V6

The short answer is, as and when VM decide that their staff can safely work in customer homes for non-fault (and therefore non-urgent) works.

Any answer other than that would be speculative.

Re: Extra V6 box

Hi dark-knight, 

Thanks for your post and it's great to hear that you are wanting to upgrade your services. 

There is no update on when we will be doing non fault work as of yet however as soon as we do update things, we'll update our page here: Virgin Media’s Update on Covid-19

Hope that helps.
