Is V6 box compulsory to upgrade package?

Hi,

I currently have TV, Broadband and Phone with VM and I've just received an email offering me a discounted upgrade to the 'Bigger' package.

I have a Tivo box (and a Superhub 3 for my Broadband) and I don't want to lose the recordings on there so am I able to upgrade without replacing my Tivo box with a V6?

Thanks,

Chris

You could still keep it (for the time being), but bear in mind that:

1) An increasing number of apps are only available on the V6. It is also performs far better.

2) Virgin should this year be moving to the Horizon 4 Interface for the V6. This will mean the standard TiVOs days are numbered, as VM will not want to run 2 TV platforms on the network for too long.

Thanks for the info. I just wanted to make sure that we wouldn't have to change the Tivo box just yet to avoid losing all our recorded tV programmes.
