Do you need an aerial with Virgin Media
You can’t get cable television from Sky so if you go with them you will need a dish.
If you get cable from Virgin then no, you don’t need an aerial.
Is Virgin Media cable or satellite
Virgin Media setup & requirements
Instead of a satellite dish, Virgin TV comes through a fibre optic cable, which is a benefit but also a restriction. But it’s a restriction because Virgin’s fibre optic cables don’t reach every property in the UK, unlike Sky’s satellite broadcasts.
Do I need a TV aerial for a Freeview box
Yes. You need an aerial to get Freeview. But first, check your Freeview coverage and see what channels you can receive at your address. Make sure your aerial is in good condition and connected to the aerial point in your living room.
Does v6 box need coaxial cable
The new V6 box “must” have two connections for it to work. A coax connection to the VM network wall box/splitter and a connection to the internet through the VM Hub via ethernet cable, powerline adapters or wifi. If the coax cable is too short, call them and ask them for a longer one.
Can I watch TV without an aerial
No, you will not pick up any stations without an aerial. Since it is a smart TV it should have internet TV services built in. Such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, just to name some. So, you will not need an aerial, unless you want to watch live TV in your area.
Do I need an aerial if I have a Sky dish
It comes from a dish and needs to go to a satellite enabled TV or a satellite box. It will NOT work on a terrestrial TV. You need a ‘normal’ aerial for your set. You could use the same coax for Freeview terrestrial though, IF, and only if, you fit a TV aerial on the end that is presently connected to the dish LNB.
Is Virgin Media better than BT
Virgin is faster than BT because it uses a coaxial cable to connect up individual houses, which as a technology, is better at delivering fast speeds than the copper phone lines BT still uses to connect houses to it’s fibre broadband.
Is Virgin Media better than sky
However, Sky’s broadband network is still far larger than Virgin’s. Sky offer more channels at every tier, and while Virgin Media used to win this category because of their Tivo boxes, the move to offer Sky Q as standard means Sky are once more leading the pack in terms of viewing technology. Sky.
Does Virgin Media have a Sky Go equivalent
Similar to Sky Go, Virgin TV Anywhere will let you register up to two devices for the service, which can be changed on a monthly basis – so basically, you could register a computer and an iPhone, or an iPad and an iPhone…or any variation.
