They do know about it. I called to add Sky Movies & HD for over Christmas and at the end of the call asked about it. Unfortunately what they didn't know was pricing and said that a leaflet or...

I do think it's odd they didn't announce all their pricing at once. However, I do believe they would have planned their strategy a lot more carefully when initiating a contract with TiVo - can't see...

Not really - just the way it's worded. None of the real good stuff would work with existing boxes. Read the official VM press release - never mind third party consumer sites versions!

Remote recording is mentioned.

I envy the staff that will get these first!

Along with all the new features, this truly is going to be a ground-breaking box and a new era in TV!

Bring it on!

I don't think there's any doubt that a new TiVo box and software will knock the socks of current boxes. Furthermore, there will be a charge probably in line with Sky's recent new box.

I wouldn't...

The channel re-arranging, etc, may be possible with the new TiVo software. I think you'll find it's a lot more than a souped-up EPG - there's a lot more functionality and improvements on how you...

It's a pity that Sky have dictated the cost per box issue, as there's no additional cost to them.

I'm still not convinced, however, that there's not a bandwidth issue with Virgin - is it not the...
