Pure speculation on my part, but given ITV Hub App isn't available in Scotland on VM, just via VM's On-demand services in branded folders, maybe with the coming launch of ITVX ITV are making a regional variant of ITVX for VM in Scotland?

Yes, I was wondering if it was anything to do with ITVX.

ITV Hub on the legacy Tivo outside of Scotland is just a message informing customers that they need to upgrade to a V6. Maybe Scottish Tivo users are about to get the same message?

I've got a V6 box. I hadn't even thought about Original VM Tivo users.

I could be wrong but got the impression from MediaBoy's post that he was referring to the original box.

I think MB has one, and that wording is ambiguous enough, so that's possible.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

ITV has started showing pop-ups for devices with ITV Hub that won't be supported by ITVX when it arrives.

On Virgin Media the V6, TV 360 and Stream devices are all listed as supported according to this RXTV article.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

It’s a good reason for TiVo viewers to upgrade. ITVX actually sounds half decent.

I don't see why. Legacy TiVo users have never had ITV Hub and the won't miss what they don't have. I would have thought that, if they wanted to stream ITV content, they would have already obtained an additional device - or maybe they can access the content on a smart TV. The problem of missing apps on the original TV most likely means that users have made other arrangements.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

The reason I said that is that ITVX will be more than just repeats of stuff thatís already been on. There will be originals on the pay-service as well.

Ok but that's no different to the many other apps also not available on legacy TiVo boxes. It's probably safe to say that, if users haven't already upgraded, they either aren't interested in streaming or have made other arrangements.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Didnt't realise in the US you can't get Disney + (no ads) and Hulu* (no ads) as a bundle without ESPN+.


*We increasingly get new Hulu Originals on Disney+ , at least 6 are due to premiere on Disney+ later this year , aswell shows from FX channel and upcoming ABC shows like Alaska Daily , Avalon and Will Trent

Prime app on V6 logged me out yesterday. When I logged in again the profiles that we have were visible for the first time.
