    ... Addressed to someone called "Dean" (their 'mail-merge' has gone a bit wrong).

    £149.99 for the box,
    £3 on the bill,
    AND a £40 installation.

    So we got the installation free, but otherwise the same offer as existing customers.

    Full email:

    Interesting note in the small print - seems you CAN go onto L or M+ TV package with TiVo, and pay £8 a month instead of £3 (which makes sense, as it was £5 extra for V+ on these packages before, right?).

    This could be good news for some people (myself included, although everyone in the house is getting hooked on having the extra channels now!).

    I'm a bit disappointed that we have to pay an installation fee. Especially as it was rumoured we wouldn't. I will still probably bite the bullet and get one though.

    They really haven't even launched yet - this offer and all existing ones are pre-sales:

    The product is available (and has been since staff 'bought' it back in December) and therefore has launched.

    It's a fantastic product (I got one as part of the initial calls made to people who signed up online and paid £149). But it has been a bit of a farce. I was told by a manager that no one had paid for the box and everyone who currently had one was given it free and told it was still in testing. When I told her to check my account and did that mean I could have my £149 back she didn't know what to say. The mobile remote record that is given as one of the features in the user guide I was given at instalation will not work for me as it says I don't have TiVo (I have even showed the box to my phone!!!). The launch date has been pushed back several times. And now everyone whe registered is called Dean.

    Another Dean here.

    Does anybody know how much M+ would cost me?

    I've currently got 50mb broadband and M phone for £39 a month.

    If you already have a VM phone line:

    M+ £6.50 (+£8 tivo) = £14.50
    L £12.50 (+£8 tivo) = £20.50
    XL £24.50 (+£3 tivo) = £27.50

    http://shop.virginmedia.com/digital-tv.html

    those are all half price for the first 6 months (full price shown above)
