Thanks for the replies. Yes, around 9 o'clock is a busy time. If I could watch one and record two at the same time it would be great. It probably might only happen about a half dozen times a year though. I suppose I can always download some programmes or watch on my laptop using a VPN.9pm is a particularly busy slot
How much does it cost to have a second box in a different room per annum/month?The Horizon Box allows you to record 4 programmes and watch a 5th.
We have 3 analogue points in the house, seldom used. We are thinking of just having one room in the house for watching TV. Virgin Media charge €20 or €30 or €35 for their TV only packages, depending on how many channels you want.The Horizon Box allows you to record 4 programmes and watch a 5th.
Take a look at the free to air satellite channels here.Can I get a box similar to the Horizon Box if I get a satellite dish installed? Can I get all the stations that Virgin Media provide....
Not really. Log on to Virgin TV and they have their pricing for Digital TV. They do not have any pricing for their Analogue TV. Many people were happy with their analogue service. They were sent a bill and paid the requested amount. They did not know that different people were being charged different prices. They should have displayed the price of the service they were offering.>>>All cheaper, so why was I being charged €432 a year for basic analogue when Freedom TV was available for €240? Almost identical channels.
Ans: Customer inertia...
Thanks theresa. That seems reasonable.Sorry Brendan but that's incorrect. Radio channels will only be available on Virgin via a set top box e.g. Horizon.
The slow death of their analogue service has been flagged for years, there are threads here dating back to 2009 on the topic. This wasn't a service actively marketed to new customers, they were under no obligation to advertise pricing. No business is obliged to openly advertise the prices of all their services online.I would be interested to know if a company who is selling a service must have their prices displayed?
