Upgrading to v6 box from TiVo for vulnerable customer
28-11-202014:19 - edited 28-11-202014:20
my 85 year old father in law wants to watch the football on amazon Prime (of which he is a member) but he hasn’t got a v6 box.
My questions are ; firstly, could we order a v6 box for him, 2nd, how much would it cost and thirdly, could it be installed for him? We are 100 miles away and both he and us live in tier 3 areas. Any suggestions?

If a nominated family member can quote the full name of the account holder and their password, that is normally sufficient for third party authority.
Edit: As far as installing goes, the V6 needs two connections.. 1: The incoming co-ax carrying your TV signals, same as any VM box. 2: Either a (reliable) WiFi or (ideally) Ethernet cable to your VM superhub for the internet.
TiVo > V6 swaps can often be done using self-install "Quick Start" with no need for an engineer visit.
