VIRGIN media launched a new application that allows customers to download and watch 2,000 TV shows anywhere.
|My Virgin Media TVGo App|
The free Virgin TV Go app includes channels such as Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. It means that customers can download programs via wifi, 4g or 3g while they are in the UK or in any EU country directly to their mobile phone or tablet.
However, customers should be careful with data costs and usage allowances to avoid paying more for viewing and downloading programs.
The telecommunications giant also launched an application of Virgin TV, aimed at children from three to seven years, so that parents can download programs such as Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol.
The applications are available on iOS and Android.
Once a downloaded program has been started, Virgin TV customers have 48 hours to complete it before it expires.
The complete list of channels is: ABC Studios, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, Crime + Investigation, Food Network, Fox, History, Lifetime, Nickelodeon, Travel Channel, Nat Geo and Syfy.
Exclusive virgin TV sets include Magic City, Kingdom, Good Behavior and Imposters. The applications are similar to those offered by other TV subscription services.
Sky Go only allows customers to stream content, they have to pay £ 5 per extra month to access Sky Go Extra to download programs. With the BT TV application, you can stream content and download it to your TV box, as well as access update services. Only one selection of content is available for download on Netflix.
On Saturday, Virgin Media and UKTV resolved a salary dispute in which their channels returned, including Dave and Gold. Initially, Virgin had refused to pay what it called “inflated” rates, while UKTV, which is partly owned by the BBC, said it would not accept “drastic” wage cuts. While another dispute, this time between Virgin Media and ITV meant that customers were at risk of losing more popular channels.
