Virgin Media and TiVo first announced that they would be teaming up last November, and now a year on they have finally announced the first details of their upcoming TiVo-powered HD/3D set top box.
The HD/3D set top box will launch alongside Virgin Media’s new TiVo-powered next generation connected TV service, due to come out later this year. Coupled with their on Demand service, this will give viewers access to over 4,600 hours of TV shows, movies and music videos as well as instantly available catch-up TV from terrestrial broadcasters. As that would take you just under 200 days non-stop to watch, its a good thing they have decided to give consumers an unprecedented 1 TeraByte of storage for recordings. The new box will also have a dedicated internal modem so that you can bring internet services and apps direct to your TV.
There is still no official launch date for the new set top box, but our prediction is it will be out in time for Christmas.
