Websites are regulated by the ASA, so maybe someone who feels Sky are wrong can raise it?

We've been asked to move the conversation on, seeing as Sky Atlantic isn't Coming Soon to Virgin TV. Although I suspect the ASA remit doesn't extend to corporate press releases.

No not a chance Sky Sports is a well recognised brand across Europe and is going nowhere anytime soon.

Comcast paid a lot of money for Sky, but I don't know how far they plan to extend that brand further, especially as the Sky brand is also used by other former Murdoch companies, especially in India, which Comcast does not control.

It also depends on how quickly Comcast plan to turn Sky from a satellite tv company into a IPTV company and/or global streamer.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

I've just come across this - Amazon Prime should be available on your V6 box from next Monday (22nd)

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Is Amazon Prime a V6 only feature, or is it also available on the standard Tivo?

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Thanks, Den - I think...
I need to weigh-up any benefit of upgrading to V6 - losing all my Tivo recordings, versus gaining the Amazon Prime feature (which I can access via a Fire stick).

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Sadly TV recordings cannot be transfered to a V6 as you say although Series Links , Thumb ratings and Auto record Wishlists can.

You could get the V6 as an extra box, and keep the TiVo. If you connect the TiVo by Ethernet to your hub, you'd even be able to watch the recordings via your V6

Thanks SP - a roadmap to advance from Tivo to V6.
