On demand TV apps – everything you need to know
Entertainment shows up everywhere these days: channels, box sets, streaming services, even YouTube. That’s why it’s so important to bring it all together under one roof. With our Virgin TV apps, it’s easy to browse, bookmark and record so you never miss a thing.
The Virgin TV Go app
Meet Virgin TV Go, the newest in our roster of Virgin TV apps. This clever app lets you watch live TV and On Demand TV programmes, all from your mobile or tablet. You can even take the telly you love on the go, wherever you have an internet connection with WiFi, 3G or 4G in the UK. Virgin TV Go is available to all Virgin Media TV customers.
How to download the Virgin TV Go app
This Virgin Media TV app works across iOS, Android and the most popular web browsers. You can download it, and other Virgin TV apps, from the App Store or Google Play, or open it in a browser. You can register it on up to five devices, and use it on two devices simultaneously.
Virgin TV 360
With the Virgin Media TV app and the Virgin TV 360 box, you can bring all your favourite TV together in one place.
Virgin TV Go works seamlessly with Virgin TV 360 so you can watch On Demand TV apps like YouTube and Vevo. You can also access Amazon Prime and Netflix (when you subscribe), and catch up players like BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, and Sky on Demand. If there are lots of TV watchers in your home, you can create separate profiles that are personalised to the user. It’s the TV you love, the way you want it.
Virgin TV Control app
Use a Virgin V6 box or TiVo box? Virgin TV apps have got you covered. Meet Virgin TV Control.
The Virgin Media TV app that allows you to control your TV from anywhere, use Virgin TV Control on as many devices as you’d like. Manage recordings from anywhere with a WiFi, 3G or 4G connection. Stream recordings, browse the TV Guide and personalise your channel set up with favourites first. Use your mobile or tablet as an extra remote.

Using Virgin TV Control with TV
It’s easy to install and use Virgin TV apps, including Virgin TV Control, whether you’re using a Virgin TV V6 box or a TiVo. Just follow the instructions on the app once you've downloaded it.
How do I add Virgin TV Control to my Virgin TV?
If the app isn’t pre-installed on your Virgin TV V6, you can install it yourself by pressing Home on the remote, then selecting Apps & Games, then All Apps. Search for Virgin TV Control and follow on-screen instructions.
How do I add the Virgin TV Control app to my TiVo box?
To install an app on your TiVo box, press the circle button on your TiVo remote to go to the Android TV home screen and choose apps. If you don’t see the app you want, you can search for it yourself on Google Play by selecting Apps, then Get More Apps, then searching for it. Follow the on-screen instructions to install it.
Sky Sports and Sky Cinema
If you’re a Virgin TV customer with Sky Cinema, you can watch Sky’s movies with Virgin TV Go, on your PC, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Android device. Watch every Sky Cinema channel, plus loads of movies on demand, from Hollywood blockbusters to family movies.
Want the big game in your pocket? If you’re subscribed to Sky Sports, you also get access to the Sky Sports app. It's available wherever there’s a 3G, 4G or WiFi connection in the UK, so you never have to miss a live tournament or season finale when someone else is hogging the remote or you’re in between places.
If you currently don't have access to either of these products, then perhaps you should think about getting a Sky upgrade built into your package.
