Virgin Media announces 1TB 3D/HD TiVo box

With 500 hours of content and 1TB storage, would we leave our sofas?

Virgin Meda has launched a 1TB TiVo set top box which is made by Cisco, which was announced almost a year ago. The 3D/HD set top box has a 1TB drive, which is definitely a lot more than what's available currently.
 

According to Virgin Media, the set top box which is powered by its fibre optic network, is able to store up to 500 hours of content. It also has a modem which allows users to benefit from HD video and online services without involving the user's broadband lines.

No pricing details have been announced, nor do we know when the 1TB top box would be made available.

It's quite possible Virgin Media was having a dig at Sky Anytime+ when it said that: "Competitors’ ‘connected TV’ products rely on just one central broadband connection, typically DSL, making it difficult for families to watch online TV or TV on Demand and take advantage of the internet at the same time".

Are you excited by the new set top box offerings in the UK? Tell us why on T3's Twitter and Facebook and keep tuned in for regular updates on all things tech.
