    hi

    just need a little advice , i would like to be able to view the bbc hd service but im unsure what i need ?

    i have a hd tv with freeview and virgin media but i dont want to have to pay for the v+ service.

    is there any other way i can get bbc hd ,perhaps with a one off payment for a box.


    cheers

    I would still recommend the V+ simply due to it's PVR functions, the extra HD (BBC and VOD) can be viewed as a bonus and of course no harm in calling VM and asking what it would cost and you were considering dropping VM for Freesat:)

    I understand virgin will do the v+ box for 75 quid now. Thats definitely the cheapest option for you.
