Re: new horizon mini box testing

If I understand correctly, the mini box requires a main Horizon-driven box to operate.

The invites, currently being sent out, are, I believe, for the main Horizon box, not the mini.

Re: new horizon mini box testing

.....as has been stated in a different thread, this looks like its being rolled out to select users only (normally who live in a specific area of the country), who get an invite via email.

Don't think there is an official way to request an invite.....

Re: new horizon mini box testing

So how do you take part in the trial when the links in the email don’t work?

You can register here if you haven't had an email:

https://www.virginmedia.com/offers/befirst 

Apparently the link in the email is working for some customers but not for others.

Just to point out that unlike SkyQ minis, the Virgin mini boxes still have to be connected to Virgins coax network. So if you don't currently have multiroom or a second connection point in the house for the mini box it will require a tech visit to change your coax cabling.

......bit of a pointless feature then if the mini box requires its own wired connection?? Isn't the whole point of the mini boxes that they connect to the existing network (i.e. join the existing wifi network)??!

 

May as well stick to having multiple V6 boxes.....
