Virgin Media unveils details of TiVo connected TV service

Virgin Media has announced the first details of its upcoming TiVo-powered set top box. The new set top box, which will be capable of delivering linear and on-demand content in both HD and 3D, will launch alongside Virgin Media's new TiVo-powered next generation connected TV service scheduled for later this year.

According to Virgin Media,the new box's internal modem will enable delivery of HD video and other online services without impacting customers' regular broadband connections. The box will offer a terabyte of storage—equivalent to up to 500 hours of recorded content.

Cindy Rose, Executive Director of Digital Entertainment at Virgin Media, said: "We're really proud of our new next-generation TV service which will appeal to anyone and everyone looking for the best of live broadcast TV, catch up, on demand and internet apps and services."

Virgin Media and TiVo announced plans to join forces in November 2009.
