I haven't received one (I'm a VIP50, signed up my interest in TiVo on the day it was announced) and the whole thing doesn't make a great deal of sense to me, especially when I read that some recipients of the remotes hadn't even heard of (let alone registered for) TiVo and weren't VIP50s.
So maybe all of us VIP50s will get the same deal but we're not being sent the personalised remotes. Let's hope so.
Here's an email from Virgin Media on the Lucky 1000:
Thanks for your email, we are always grateful to receive feedback from our customers. I am very sorry that you feel disappointed by our Tivo roll out, I can assure you that we thought long and hard about how best to delight our customer base, and planned our customer communications very carefully. The first customers to get their hands on our new Tivo product was our staff last December, we are now in the process of going out to segments of our customer base and we will continue to do so until April when we open the offer out to new customers. We believe we have developed an offer for existing customers that is very compelling, and is better than the offer being made available to new customers, this is a core principle for us. The only new customers we have approached so far, as you indicated in your email, are some of the Tivo series 1 customers, and this is for some very specific contractual reasons which could not be avoided.
Thanks and regards,
So don't worry if you're a VIP50 and haven't received anything yet - it's early days and there's more of this type of activity planned.
