Sky Glass - Virgin media question

Hi had my Sky Glass delivered yesterday.

Not set up yet as Sky BB & TV install isn't for another week.

Can I plug in my Virgin Media box into the HDMI of the Glass and watch Virgin until my swap over? Or would this mess anything up?

 

Thanks in advance 🙂

You can plug any device that uses HDMI into your Sky Glass, there isn't anything for it to mess up as it's just an input.

Note the Glass set won't do anything until it's updated and activated though: you can't use it as a monitor before then as there won't be any user interface to permit input selection.

@Fluke74 not sure what you mean by TV install as with Sky Glass you set it up yourself it's not like Sky Q or the older HD+ where an engineer comes to install it for you.

Broadband you might get an engineer depending on which broadband service you have taken.

If you still have an internet connection running until you swap to sky (eg Virgin) you can use that internet connection to use your glass tv
