Virgin Media has posted a teaser image of a new set-top-box on its corporate Twitter account, thought to be its answer to Sky Q.

Earlier this year, as part of financial results statement in May, Virgin Media revealed that it will be launching a new, 4K-ready TiVo box this year. Now Virgin Media has revealed the box, along with the accompanying remote control, via its corporate Twitter account.

There's little to deduce from the unveiling of this new TiVo box, but Virgin Media refers to it as V6. As for Ultra HD features, connectivity or new functions, we're still none the wiser.

It is no coincidence that Virgin Media has decided to unveil its new box this week. Sky officially launches its 4K service for Sky Q customers on 13 August, with the start of the Premier League football season seeing three matches broadcast in Ultra High Definition.

We're not sure yet when you'll be able to upgrade to Virgin Media TiVo 4K, or how much extra the service might cost, but existing TiVo box users will likely get an updated user experience at the same time.
