What is pay per view?

Live sport and more events you can watch for a one-off fee on your Virgin TV. From the wrestling or boxing ring to the Premier, pay per view stops you missing the moment champions are made.


How to order a live event on Virgin TV

To buy a pay per view event on a Virgin Media TiVo or V6 box:

  1. Tap Home on the remote.
  2. Head to On Demand > Live Events, then press the red button.
  3. Choose from the available pay per view events (enter your TV PIN, if asked). To watch, go to On Demand > Live EventsHow to order a Live Event on Virgin TV or see what’s available, as soon as it’s started.

Do you have a V, V+ HD or V HD box?
Go to Channel 0 to watch Live Events in standard definition (HD’s unavailable for now).

How to play the Live Event on one of your other boxes

To watch your pay per view event on another box, rather than the one you bought it on, turn it on and, if it’s a:

  • Virgin TV V6 or TiVo box; tap Home on the remote and go to On Demand > Live Events.
  • V, V HD or V+ HD box; go to Live Events > Event Bookings, you’ll see your pay per view event, unless it’s high definition or exclusive to TiVo and V6 boxes.

If you’re interested in having more than one TV box, see Set up multi-room (it’s easier than you’d think).
