Virgin TV Go app offers the best entertainment on the box with new download feature

Virgin Media customers can take their favourite TV shows with them – on the move and abroad – with the new download feature on the Virgin TV Go app.

Full House and VIP customers can now download their favourite programmes to compatible phones and tablets following an update to the app.

Virgin Media is offering more than 2,000 episodes of top-notch entertainment from the likes of Fox, ABC and Comedy Central, as well as Virgin TV’s collection of exclusive box sets, such as Kingdom and Ash Vs Evil Dead.  

In time for summer holidays, customers can download shows over WiFi, 4G or 3G in the UK or countries in the EU. Any programme downloaded prior to leaving the UK or EU can be watched anywhere else in the world offline.  

David Bouchier, Virgin Media’s Chief Digital Entertainment Officer, said: “Whether it’s bingeing on a box set on the beach or catching up on a comedy on a plane or train, our customers can download the best entertainment on the box direct to their phones or tablets with the Virgin TV Go app.”

Keeping everyone ‘appy

With the Virgin TV Go app customers can also stream live TV, catch-up and video-on-demand box sets. The shows available depend on their Virgin Media bundle.

Parents can also keep their children entertained over the summer holidays with the Virgin TV Kids app. Aimed at children aged three to seven, it offers some of the best-loved children’s TV shows available for download such as Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol, as well as a great range of books and games.

Both the Virgin TV Go and Virgin TV Kids apps are available for iOS and Android.
