Is this a good deal from Virgin Media?

Hi all,

Due to the recent price increase by Virgin Media I phoned them to see if they can offer me a better deal, threatening to leave them to go with Sky.

At present I have the following

TV XL with V + HD Box
10MB Boradband
Free weekend calls

At the moment I pay £43.74 which is due to go up to £44.64

They have offered me

500 MB Tivo box on TV XL
V+ HD Box in another room (XL Package)
10MB Broadband
Free weekend calls

For £45.99 a month with a on-off £49.95 activation fee for the Tivo box on a 12 month contract.

Is this a good deal or not?

Depends how much you value having a box in another room?

At the moment I have a TV in the conservatory which is analogue (and the signal is poor), so putting the second box in there would mean that I wouldn't have to upgrade the tv aerial or buy a freeview box, plus I would get all of the channels in there

the tivo box is amazing, the HDD is so much bigger than the last one.
