Another TiVo Lucky 1000

Posted on Virgin Media's Sofa Forum by James Skelton

Thanks for your interest in our TiVo powered service. We've had an amazing response since we launched this product.
You may have heard that some lucky Virgin Media customers have been sent a TiVo remote control alongside a special offer. These people were randomly selected from a group of our longest serving customers. But don't worry if you weren't one of the recipients of this offer - we've got something else up our sleeve. We'll soon be offering all our VIP 50, VIP 20 and XL TV customers (who also have Virgin Media Broadband and Phone) the chance to become one of 1000 lucky customers to win a special TiVo deal and we're continuing to prioritise our existing customers to make sure they are the first people in the country to get a hold of this fantastic new service.
We'll also be doing something special for our non XL TV customers that have registered their interest online at www.virginmedia.com/tivo. We've been busy collating all of their details and will be in touch very soon to let them know when they will be able to get the service. We'll be making sure that they get a chance to get their hands on TiVo in a pre-sale window, before we make this available to the general public. But more about that soon.
We know that people are excited about getting our new TV service, and we're working hard to make sure our customers find out about the great deals that will be available and get installed as quickly as possible.

I'm a happy bunny. I have received a call tonight from Virgin and I'm having Tivo installed on February 16th. It has cost £149 with no install charge. I'm a VIP 50 customer and they will not do the box cheaper as they said it will be £199 and £49 install charge for new customers. I currently have 2 V+HD boxes and they are relocating one of the boxes into my sons room with no extra charge. I will have 2 V+HD boxes and a Tivo box. Good luck to those who get to be one of the new 1000 lucky customers.

Didn't know you could have three boxes. Is there a monthly cost implication?

Does anyone know the geographical spread of the Tivo's so far. Are only certain areas getting it? I am in Brighton.

I live in Leicester if that helps at all. My 2 V+HD boxes will be costing £5.50 each per month multi room with my Tivo and one of my V+HD both having HD sport and movies. My package will be costing me about £124 per month which also includes the £3 Tivo subscription per month.
