Virgin Media's eagerly anticipated TiVo software upgrades are to be rolled out in the coming weeks, it has been announced.

Back in September, the broadband provider announced plans to update its next-generation, digital TV service with a number of new features.

Customers are currently waiting for the updates to come online, but according to Virgin Media, the changes are imminent.

In a Twitter post, the broadband provider confirmed the upgrade will occur before the end of the year.

This will "fix, improve and add some fantastic new features" to the converged TV service, which launched in late 2010.

Among the changes will be the launch of Express Series Link, which will speed up the process of recording entire series.

Multi-tap text entry is also to be introduced, according to Digital Spy.

This will enable customers to make searches simply by using the number buttons on the remote control.

All content from BBC iPlayer will be integrated into the TV guide, catch-up menu and TiVo search system.

And the YouTube app is to be "given a whole new look", enabling viewers to search a wider range of videos and access high definition footage.

Also, users will get access to a TiVo Buddy App from the Apple App store, meaning it will be possible to control more features via an iPhone, iPad or iPad Touch.

Speaking recently, a Virgin Media spokesperson said the TiVo service is "continually evolving".

They confirmed that customers have more new features and greater functionality to look forward to over the coming months.
