They have to pay TiVo £3 per box, so even if they hid the charge in the overall package, the package would still be £3-£5 more expensive. If they didn't charge, then they'd lose £3-£5 per box.
Virgin Media are moving towards customers spending more per month (quality over quantity), so the lower tiers may lose customers.
Would be good if XL had it included though
