They tell me that if I want to get Vodafone TV I have to DOWNGRADE from FibreX Max to plain old FibreX!

They can't be serious. Can they?

Whether they're serious or not, I recommend you, or anyone else considering VF TV, read this thread first:


The new Vodafone TV

Don't use 'beefstew' as a password.  It's not stroganoff.

There is a thread or two on here somewhere about multicast not being available on 1Gbps plans. Presumably this limitation must still exist.

FibreX Max is over their own cable network though? Or does the OP mean Fibre Max?
