Virgin unveils V6 box15 August 2016
Virgin Media has revealed new details about its upcoming set-top box.
The Liberty Global EOS box, which will be marketed as the Virgin TV V6 in the UK, is expected to arrive later this year.
The box is set to rival Sky Q, with a Virgin Media tweet stating, “We have confirmed that the box will be called the Virgin TV V6 and it is of course powered by TiVo.
“It is 4K UHD ready on Netflix and YouTube. Apart from that we are not releasing any further details at this stage, but please stay tuned, because there will be more news to come.”
The company has also launched its updated TiVo user interface, which will be used as part of the new box. It includes a new feature that will enable users to find, save and group together content across linear, on-demand and online TV services.
The box has been designed as a standard advanced TV hardware platform, and, outside of the UK, will carry the updated Horizon interface.
