  • Summary: The menu system on this box is practically medieval, proven by the fact that it is set up for a 4:3 screen and isn't even in widescreen. Not a scratch on Sky TV standard HD box.
  • Pros: its quite quick
  • Cons: terrible user interface

  • Summary: I don't have the money or inclination to add SKy movies/sport to my Virgin XL package so can't comment on that content.However, I find my V+ HD box is always full of programmes to watch as I series link them.
  • Pros: Lots of HD content incl. on demand,Iplayer etc,ability to record 2 programmes while watching a 3rd recording(Sky can't match that)
  • Cons: UI not so pretty or intuitive

  • Summary: About 3 years ago, I owned the original V+ box and found it to be slow and unreliable (I soon realised why there was a reset button on the front of the box!). Last year I chose to move to Sky for my TV and got an Amstrad Sky+ HD box which was perfectly good for my TV needs but as I kept my broadband...
  • Pros: The box looks gorgeous, plenty of on demand
  • Cons: Not enough HD content yet

  • Summary: First of all, I've had this service for over a year now coupled with a 20 meg broadband connection - compared to my previous Virgin subscriptions I've had no problems whatsoever with it.
  • Pros: The on demand services are to die for
  • Cons: Lack of HD lets it down
