Use existing Netflix Account on Virgin TiVo box and a nice little story

14
Found 21st Nov 2013
Just thought I'd let you all know that if you have a Virgin TiVo box you can log in with your existing Netflix account, essentially cutting down the media devices connected to your TV.

Now, although this is a freebie post I thought I'd tell you about my phone call today with Virgin.

Previous Package:
XL TV + 60 mb + M phone
£70 / month

New Package:
TiVo Box with 6 months Netflix + 60 mb + M phone
£64.75 / month

I heard about the 6 month Netflix offer and enquired about downgrading broadband and upgrading TV to TiVo and see the resulting price.

Instead they offered me to stay on 60 mb and upgrade to TiVo but at a new cheaper price of £64.74 + One off installation fee of £50.

They also told me they would relocate my current V+ Box to another room free of charge.

Now the cons:
It is a 12 month contract - No downgrading any of your services within contract
Price increase in February of £4 to £5 - Although this price increase would just bring me back to my original price before TiVo.

Enjoy!

I got this same deal for 45 pounds

I just don't get this love of Netflix, like lovefilm online its s**t unless you like old films - to think these have killed blockbusters where you can rent the latest films in blu ray/decent spec and hd sound - what a joke

im all for online films but for now we have gone back at least 5 years as the sound/pic quality is rubbish esp sound which is terrible

I beg to differ the picture and sound is quality and as for old films your looking in the wrong place. I've seen skyfall and the host on there recently. I personally like netflix so this is a good deal

Sorry, but where is this a FREEBIE of any description?

Netflix is great especially if you use something like unblock us. We have about 2000 films on ours the US has around 14,000. With unblock us you can change region and watch Netflix from US, Canada, Mexico, Sweden, Finland, Ireland etc. Always a good film to watch.

Plus a lot of love is breaking bad based, quite rightly so with weekly episodes of the last series when it aired
Orange is the new black is good too

I agree with the blockbuster comment. What a waste of a company to watch rubbish quality sound and picture in favour of the latest blu ray. Netflix and Lovefilm are just rubbish if I am totally honest. You would be better downloading a blu ray rip if that's the case and stream it or USB key it.

Totally agree. I have access to the USNetflix and it's superb. I have no issue with sound or quality and love that if you are watching a series it will remember where you stopped watching and start it from there when you want to start watching it again.

Could anyone tell me if we have a existing netflick account . Which we used to watch on our wii console . We are currently still paying monthly for netflick and now we have a TiVo box , can we use our existing netflick account or do we have to pay again . I'm very confused .

You can use your current netflix account on the tivo

Ours logged out and now it won't log back in. It says the Information is incorrect but it's working fine on my phone...

Hi! My grandfather doesn't have broadband but I managed to sign in on my Netflix account on his virgin box! Do you know if this costs or is it using the virgin package he has? Thanks for any help!
