Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Liberty Global has said on Twitter to Media Boy Sources that "Horizon 4 UI on the V6 box" should be with us on Virgin Media UK by the end of the year.

The changes in the past have been noticed whilst looking for new channels on the Digital Bit Rate website, and they were rare enough, until fairly recently, to just mention in passing.

Given they have increased greatly in recent weeks I take your point, that it is dragging this thread off-topic, and I have started a new topic thread to keep them separate.

It's been some time since this thread has been anything but unsubstantiated speculation.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Well, I like the name of the Horizon UI.., but I want to know, is, can I do on this things like reorder the channels where I want and on what number? Can I copy recordings off to hard disk etc etc

V6 with tivo is fast, but just doesn't cut the mustard for me. I had more flexibility with videoplus and VHS recordings than now, well, in some regards.

If the new Horizon UI is installed on V6 boxes, the hard drives are already there for recordings. Hopefully, cloud recordings will also be available, and this would be very useful given the small number of recordings you can make on a V6 box with only 1MB capacity.

I was interested in the flexibility you were talking about in relation to Videoplus and VHS recordings. What were these additional flexibilities? The only one I can think of in relation to VHS tapes was the ability to keep recordings for as long as you liked (provided that you were happy to keep buying more blank tapes!) Personally, I was happy to ditch them - it was a right faff!

You know, I thought it was there before, but when I looked last week, they weren't there - they were only in the on demand section.

It would be nice if they were the full versions of the Hub, All4 and My5 in the apps section. Even nicer if they could bundle the ad-free versions with Netflix, Prime and Starzplay!

Must be regional then, only showing STVPlayer here. Understandable, STV wouldn't want to go the effort of getting their app on VM if there was an option to use ITV app.

Still have the ITV Hub branded section in Catch-up though.

I've just checked and none of the players (apart from the BBC i-Player) are showing here under Apps and Games. Maybe something is being rolled out in stages.
