Virgin Media V6 Free Upgrade

Virgin Media today announced it’s plan to upgrade existing customers to their new state of the art V6 box. Best of all, this upgrade is absolutely FREE!!

The V6 box is the latest and greatest TV box from Virgin media and features 4K UHD HDR capabilities as well as the ability to record 6 shows at once! This new box still uses the world famous TiVo interface so you’ll be greeted by a familiar interface as soon as you switch on your new V6 box!

You don’t have to do anything, simply Virgin Media will begin contacting all customers soon to arrange your free upgrade. Perhaps the best news of all is that taking this new box won’t lock you in to a new contract!

Here’s what Virgin Media had to say in their press release:

“Starting today Virgin Media is offering existing Virgin TV customers a free upgrade to its V6 box, giving them access to the very best connected entertainment experience alongside ultrafast broadband. 

In what is one of the largest customer upgrade programmes ever carried out in the UK, Virgin Media is accelerating the rollout of its best-ever box and will end the year with the majority of its TV customers using the next-generation, 4K-ready V6.

The upgrade programme comes as Virgin Media installs its millionth V6 box TV customer; just over one year since it was first launched.

Customers who take a TV and broadband bundle will be able to upgrade their older set-top box for Virgin TV’s smallest, smartest and fastest V6 box at no additional cost and with no re-contract requirements.
Eligible customers will be contacted in the coming weeks with details of how they can request their V6 box. The vast majority will be able to self-install avoiding the need for an engineer visit.”
