TiVo box

The TV boxes – TiVo® and V HD, and our clever little app

If you love TV, you’ll really love TiVo. It's packed with loads of great features – and the best bit is you can watch it at home – or on the go.

TiVo box features

Uniquely Virgin Media

/content/dam/eSales/TV/responsive/TV/tivo_3.jpg

Dedicated connection
Your TiVo box has its very own dedicated 10Mbps internet connection. So that means you can stream movies and shows from Netflix and Curzon without slowing your home broadband down.

Three tuners
If everyone else wants to watch something else, no sweat. Your TiVo box comes with three tuners, so you can record three shows at the same time while also watching a fourth you recorded earlier.

Record up to 500 hours
Love a lot of TV? Then you'll need somewhere to store it all. Good job your TiVo box has enough space for recording up to 500 hours of TV.

Suggestions and Likes

Our TiVo box suggests shows and series you might enjoy based on what you’ve previously recorded. And if you rate a show after you’ve watched it using the Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down buttons, it'll use that to suggest stuff you might like next time.

Search, discover and watch

You can search for shows superfast using your TiVo box. Simply type in the name of what you want to watch (or a genre or theme), and your box will search across everything – live TV guide, Catch Up and On Demand – to find it for you.


Watch TV on demand

Don’t let the TV guide run the show.  TV On Demand is crammed with Box Sets galore. 1000s of shows – all available instantly. You'll also find loads of catch up channels, such as iPlayer, ITV Hub and All 4 here too.


 

Travel back in time

Forgotten to watch or record something? No problem – with TiVo you can scroll back in time using your TV Guide and watch any show that displays the Catch Up symbol.


 

Clever stuff on the move

Download the Virgin Media TV Anywhere app to your mobile or tablet and watch live TV from anywhere – set and manage your recordings while you're out, search for a show, control the TiVo box and much, much more.


 

Enjoy YouTube, Netflix, and more on TiVo

There's even more to your telly service than meets the eye.

Love YouTube? Netflix? hayu? BBC iPlayer? Enjoy the lot on your telly with TiVo.

Or how about music? With our VEVO app, you can experience more than 250,000+ music videos from more than 20,000 incredible artists, right there on your telly. Now that’s what we call rock ‘n’ roll.
