Virgin Media's 500GB TiVo box pegged for May 18 rollout
Virgin Media steps up to the plate to give Sky+ HD some serious competition
While Virgin Media’s flagship 1TB TiVo box is set to be finally released in the next few days, many tech-savvy consumers will be holding out for the cheaper 500GB version, which was announced earlier this week.
The 500GB hard drive model will still store a hefty 250 hours of (standard-def) content and come with all the functionality of its big brother. This includes three TV tuners, which will allow viewers to watch and record one channel, while recording two others at the same time. Another handy feature included is a dedicated internal broadband modem to power the services’ plethora of connected features.
