Virgin Media has today revealed that it has now reached two million subscribers for its TiVo service in the UK, which is about half of all of its four million TV subscribers, all of whom have opted for a TiVo box rather than the normal V+ or V HD boxes.
The TiVo box is powered by software and metadata that has been created by the US TiVo team, and customises a users recording choices based on the shows they like or dislike, done by pressing the thumbs up or thumbs down button on the remote.
Virgin Media has claimed that its TiVo subscribers have used these buttons 30 million times since it 2013, which is around 15 times per customer on average.
Virgin Media have also stated that there was 519 million shows accessed on demand through the service, and apps have been opened 174 million times.
Virgin Media also announced a new partnership with Devicescape, that could possibly allow Virgin Media to set up Virgin Media Wi-Fi hotspots around the UK, however there’s no confirmation on what they will be doing with this new deal yet.
