- For new customers
The activation fee for the 500Gb TiVo was previously £49.95. The fee for that box has now dropped to £0.00.
The activation fee for the 1TB TiVo has dropped to £49.95 (previously £99.95).
If new customers order online, they get free installation. As for additional boxes:
Any subsequent TiVo box purchases in the same order will be charged at £49.95 and £99.95 activation fee for the 500Gb TiVo and 1Tb TiVo box respectively.
- For existing customers
The activation fee prices are as above, but you have to pay an installation fee of £49.95. Want more boxes? Well:
Irrespective of the number of set-top boxes you already have, for every new sale - If you take a 500GB TiVo box as your first box, the activation fee will be waived; if you take a 1TB TiVo box as your first box, we will reduce the activation fee to £49.95
The £3 monthly TiVo charge (per customer account) still applies. Additional boxes will (usually) cost an additional £6.50 per month.
Today's news continues Virgin's big push for TiVo and also marks the online ordering death of V+ HD. The legacy PVR is now no longer available to order from Virgin's website. It was going to happen sooner or later, and its an important step towards Virgin's long-term plan to get all of their TV customers on MPEG 4 compatible hardware, which would mean reduced bandwidth usage for linear HD channels and hopefully, more HD channels.
