Virgin Media (www.virginmedia.com/TiVo) is offering new and existing customers free TiVo activation worth £49.95 when they order a TV & phone bundle (with or without broadband), that contains a 500GB TiVo box.
Prices start from £9.50 a month for a TV & phone bundle that provides 65 digital TV channels and unlimited weekend phone calls, while up to 10Mbps broadband speeds can be added for an additional £13.50 a month (total monthly price is £23).
Both bundles include a free 500GB TiVo box (normally £49.95), while free installation worth an additional £49.95 is also available for those orders placed online at the www.virginmedia.com website.
The TiVo box is Virgin Media’s newest and most exciting set top box to date and enables customers to do things with their television that they never thought was possible.
Users can watch, pause, rewind and record standard TV, plus HD and 3D, whilst also having options to search for TV shows and films by actor, director, theme or genre – which is must quicker than scrolling through channel lists.
Users can make TV WishLists and let the TiVo box suggest TV shows based on what they like, while cool apps like Facebook, Twitter, eBay and the BBCiPlayer are also on hand to enjoy.
Available with 500GB or 1TB storage, the TiVo box is currently the only set top box that enables users to record three channels while watching a fourth, which means no family member should miss out on the TV they want to watch.
According to the world’s best selling gadget magaine ‘Stuff’, the TiVo box is ‘what PVR’s (personal video recorders) have always promised, but so often failed to deliver’.
Interested readers can find out more information and order a Virgin Media bundle containing the TiVo box online at the www.virginmedia.com website.
