If you buy a box elsewhere they will not activate it as your are handling stolen goods.

Don't buy one off ebay.

V+ boxes are rented from Virgin. Any for sale are stolen. Virgin will NOT activate a stolen box.

also, still cost u an extra £10 /month on ur current bill and £7 per box per month for premium HD....per box what a rip off!!
