TiVo® service: the best way to watch TV ever?

Effortlessly find your favourite programmes, discover brand new ones and set them to remote record online from anywhere in the world with our Virgin Media TiVo service. Our amazing 1TB TiVo box records around 500 hours of standard TV or around 100 hours of HD TV. The 500GB box is pretty special too, recording around 250 hours of standard TV or around 50 hours of HD TV. We think it's by far and away the best way to watch TV. Ever.

Record any three programmes, watch a fourth

Uh-oh. Dad wants to watch the football, Mum wants to watch Britain's Got Talent and the kids want to watch cartoons – but they're all on at the same time. No problem. Our TiVo service lets you record any two programmes while you watch a third. Or, record any three programmes while you watch another you recorded earlier. TV bliss.

TiVo suggests

When you use the thumbs up and thumbs down buttons on your remote, your Tivo box learns what you like and what you don't. This clever little box then suggests stuff it thinks you'll love.

WishList: like series link, but better

Don't worry about missing your favourite show again. TiVo Wishlist lets you save a favourite search with keywords ­– like a show, genre or actor. And once you've recorded a show, your TiVo box records every episode of that show until you tell it not to. It even saves suggestions by recording similar programmes to a special folder, ready to watch.

Search and record from your mobile

Even if you're miles from home, you can set your TiVo box to record from your mobile. Search the TV schedules and access recording options through your smartphone – you can even choose which of your TiVo boxes you want to record on.

Easily find what you're looking for

It's brilliant having hundreds of channels to choose from, but scrolling through them all to find what you want to watch can take ages. With our TiVo service, you won't need to. Search by title, actor or director then once you've found what you're looking for you can add similar programmes straight to your WishList, so you’ll never miss them in future.

Control what the kids watch

Keep control of what your kids see on TV with parental control settings. Lock channels with your PIN, set age restrictions, block access to interactive services (like games, voting or gambling) and hide adult channels from the listings altogether.
