Virgin Media has announced that it’s going to be launching a set-top box, the 3D-reader V HD Box. The The V HD Box has the capability to access the six new HD channels that the broadcaster has announced this year. With the Box users can watch ITV, Eurosport, Discovery, Sci Fi, E4 and Film4 in high definition as soon as they are launched later this year. They also get access to other channels including BBC and Channel 4 HD channels.
The box is 3D-ready, and comes with HDMI, SCART, USB and ethernet ports. It offers PVR functionality, but just has a single tuner. The V HD Box will be available without extra subscription fees, users will only pay £49 for the box, plus installation costs of about £15 if you can put it together yourself, or £35 for an engineer.
If this new device tickles your fancy, then you can pre-register for the box at virginmedia.com/hd.
