Virgin V +Box
Advantages: if broken or faulty Virgin replace or repair for me
Disadvantages: I rent it, always belongs to Virgin
I do believe this is the best thing to come over from the states, The New tivo set top box is only available from Virgin and it rocks as far as technology goes,
I will say TIVO will NOT be everyone cup of tea, but anybody who lives and loves technology you'll love it. tivo has 1tb hard drive, its own 10mb modem which allows you to go online using the apps which are available, like TWITTER, E-BAY, YOU TUBE, you have still got you great virgin services like tv choice on demand, but now they have well and truly in the 21st century with there technology, if you interact using a THUMBS UP / THUMBS DOWN system it learns what you like and shows these instead of the nations favourites, you can even search for your favourite actor/actress and it will list everything showing with them in. WOW!! what else can I say at the moment other than watch this space as ive heard some new apps are going to be added in the near future and I will be back to update you on the success / failure when they go live.
I LOVE it
Summary: its the future for tv,
