Virgin V6: This is Virgin Media’s 4K TV box
We’ve known for a while that Virgin Media has been working on a new set-top box, but information on the next-generation hardware has been hard to come by. Thankfully, the company has begun teasing various aspects of what is believed to be its answer to Sky Q, today sharing both a photo of the box and a name: Virgin TV V6. Virgin Media has confirmed that like its predecessors, the V6 will support TiVo software and formally launch later this year.
Earlier today, Virgin Media shared a snapshot of the box via its Corporate Twitter account and said we can look forward to an “unboxing” tomorrow. A company spokesperson has confirmed that while it will share more information on the V6 in the coming days, it will hold an official launch event, allowing us to get up close and personal with the 4K box.
