The first screenshots of the interface for Virgin Media’s upcoming TiVo powered Connected TV service are floating around the net.

You can take a gander at them courtesy of Pocket Lint, with the site claiming that the service will be launched before the end of the year.

The TiVo powered HD/3D set-top box is going to offer a mammoth 1TB of storage, enough to record around 500 hours of content, Virgin reckons.

The screens show off the electronic programme guide and the search function, with the user interface looking pretty slick and branded in Virgin red.

Cindy Rose, Executive Director of Digital Entertainment at Virgin Media, commented: “Virgin Media’s next generation connected TV service – powered by TiVo – and combined with our superior broadband will blow other ‘connected TV’ products out of the water.”

“We’re really proud of our new next-generation TV service which will appeal to anyone and everyone looking for the best of live broadcast TV, catch up, on demand and Internet apps and services.”
