It offer the quadplay deal of broadband, phone, mobile and TV services beyond the cable network, with a small set-top box offering over 40 free-to-air TV channels and over 25 digital radio stations, along with an eight-day, Virgin branded, on-screen TV guide and a remote control and remote extender.

According to Philip Snalune, managing director of non-cable at Virgin Media: “The digital switchover is just around the corner and we can now offer consumers across the UK a simple and low-cost way of making the digital leap, even if they can’t get cable services.”
