Virgin Media today said it is bring TiVo back to Blighty with a 1TB set-top box capable of grabbing HD and 3D content from the cable company.

Virgin and TiVo announced a year ago that they were going to bring the DVR pioneer's technology to the UK.

TiVo itself never set up shop here, though Thomson and BSkyB jointly offered its original box in the UK in 2000. Production ended in 2002 when BSkyB launched its Sky+ box, and sales of the TiVo box were stopped just three years later.

Seven years on, and it's coming back. Virgin said it will offer the TiVo-based box later this year. It will connect to Virgin's fibre-optic network, and will be capable of pulling in internet TV streams on on-demand services directly, without going through your broadband router.

Pricing and availability details will be announced in due course, Virgin said. ®
