The V+ has one more tuner & arguably upscales SD better than Sky HD, but that's about it.

VM have a better on demand service and that's about all, the V+ box is now £99:thumbsdow I'm sure when new HD channels are added they will start charging extra. Cable has little scope for expansion and Fribre is very new so to get higher profits they have to get that from us and I see HD as the cash cow for future growth!

Ive had V+ installed today for £30 and i'm far more impressed with the service than i was with skys service. On Demand.... WOW, i'm extremely impressed with amount of content available, theres not tons of HD on the On Demand but theres enough for me (remember half of Sky HD is upscaled SD) The SD picture quality is fantastic, the box has 3 tuners and its much cheaper if you dont want movies or sports, oh and you get setanta sports free with the XL package at around £20. If your willing to take out a broadband and phone as well your likely to get a discounted monthly subscription. I currently pay £60 pm for XL TV, XL phone and XL broadband (20mb)
