Do i need a tv licence with virgin service?

When i first had the virgin v6 box installed , the engineer said that I don't need a tv licence as the virgin service is not using a satellite or dish. To clarify, do i need to pay for tv licence or not?

Yes, you need a TV Licence. No idea why the engineer said that as it's not correct.

If you press the Home button on the V6 remote control, select Help&Settings and then Help you will find everything the box and the remote can do

As you have subscribed to Pay TV it will be hard to convince TV Licensing that you will never consume linear TV or VOD.

Many thanks.
