Free TV? From a digital device that sits atop your telly? Yes folks, this pioneering advancement in home entertainment  – let’s call it a 'digital set-top box' – is unleashed from Virgin today. But even though it’s not the most revolutionary concept to spring from the brain of Branson, this Freeview-alike does mean that Virgin can now offer their combined Broadband, Telephone and TV packages to customers who don’t live in cable areas. But unfortunately it’s still no help for those people who can’t receive Freeview.As Freeview boxes go it’s quite dinky – about the size of a video cassette – and features dual Scarts, 3.5mm audio plus RF aerial output. And if it conks out, Virgin promise to replace it if you’re still on contract.Free to any Virgin Media customer on the 8MB broadband and talk anytime phone bundle at £20 a month, this 'Free TV' is also available at £40 for broadband-only users.
