If you're ready to welcome the 4K revolution into your home then you're probably already aware that Sky and Virgin Media both claim to offer the best experience. With a big-name set-top box now available from each, we've decided to see which one is best.
We haven't stopped at just the boxes themselves, though. We've also compared the strength of the 4K services on offer so you know just what you're getting for your money.

Why Which? testing is different
We buy every PVR and set-top box we test and look at models of all types, TV platforms and price, including Freesat, Freeview, BT TV, Sky TV, TalkTalk and Virgin Media boxes, costing from £50 to £300. We speak to manufacturers and scour the market to make sure we test all the most popular models that you'll find in the shops or online.
Which? doesn't only tell you about the Best Buy PVRs and set-top boxes that we recommend, we also tell you which models to avoid with our Don't Buys. If a PVR or set-top box has an issue we feel is so bad it must be a fault, then we will buy a new version and retest it. We'll also speak to the manufacturer to find out what it plans to do about the problem.
