Wireless Tv box like sky

Does anyone know if virgin is bringing out a new tv box similar to the v6 box which is going to be completely wireless, no cable coming from the wall. 
I have a TiVo box downstairs and I tried getting smaller one installed upstairs however they were unable to install it up there due to not being able to wire it.

so does anyone know if they are bringing one out which is completely wireless like the new SKY Q

I doubt it. It is cable TV, after all.

All I know is that Horizon 4 might replace TiVo's software in the V6. It's already been rolled out in Switzerland and Belgium.

Re: Wireless Tv box like sky

Out of interest.... did they say "why" they were unable to connect a v6 upstairs. I have one in an upstairs bedroom and its quite common to have these on the first floor at least.
What house/flat layout are you in?

They my bedroom is at the back and the normal box is downstairs at the front so they are unable to fit it due to not being able to wire it around

The cable can be installed internally but it requires work, like drilling a hole through the ceiling and lifting floorboards. Get a pull rope in place and the installation can then easily be done. You should also get an Ethernet cable run upstairs at the same time, best terminated at an RJ45 wall socket. Find a good electrician to do all of this for you.

Not true.

Ireland have the same product as UK will be getting - TV 360 box as primary with a mini box. Both require a co-ax and internet connection.

The WiFi box you refer to is effectively an IP streaming device, announced in some other countries.
