  • 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 with Virgin (I have the 50Mb service and wasn't prepared to give that up), it worked out expensive.
  • 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. You get a wide variety of channels you can subscribe to but the problem is there isn't that many HD channels for you to watch, although I've heard claims that it upscales the picture from SD - you can still see the difference between ITV 1 and ITV 1 HD.
  • Pros: The on demand services are to die for
  • Cons: Lack of HD lets it down
