Virgin V +Box
Advantages: All the many catch up pages.
Disadvantages: The memory we have.
The virgin media plus box is definately the best tv box on the market in my opinion.
Sky used to be the thing everyone wanted and only people who had good money were able to buy it, but then things changed and they were doing lots of deals, (much like contract phones).
When sky was up and running everywhere, there wasnt many other options avaliable for catch up tv and such, but then the competition came into play, and things like virgin media were invented from the company virgin that does many other things.
The virgin media plus box came with our contract with them and since we got it we've never looked back and would never want to.
The box lets you do many different things (depending on what package your paying for).
We have the xl package which pretty much lets you search and watch/ catch up on all of the avaliable options, whereas the m package limits the facilities avaliable.
On the main page there are 7 options which are:
1: tv guide
2: on demand and catch up yv
3: virgin central
4 : interactive
and 7: settings.
Number 2 on demand catch up section is what i use the most because you can catch up from most of everyday tv from the last 7 days, and also you can search by channel which has things like itv player, bbc player, and 4 on demand on it.
There are many options within options on here if you really look into it, and you can search for any program you want .
It hold its own memory too for when you want to record programs. You can record a whole series too if you want.
There really is no limit to what you can do on here, whereas sky doesnt even have a catch up service for just any program thats been on tv like virgin does.
We are at home alot and this have proven to be the best investment as we have a big tv too, and love watching tv.
Thanks for reading hope you like this as much as me .
Summary: Best thing to enter our house since the birth of our baby :)
