Don’t get lost when you’re trying to find the stuff you love with our handy guide to the updated Virgin TV 360 home screen
By Virgin Media
Nobody wants to fish the cutlery out of the aquarium. And it would be quite unusual if you kept your summer duvet in the oven for safe keeping. So, if you wouldn’t live in a home where all your belongings were in random places, why should navigating around your telly be any different?
With Virgin TV 360, finding what you want to watch is an absolute doddle. So you can spend less time looking and more time watching. And now it’s even easier with a swanky new update that makes it even easier to find what you love, continue what you were watching and discover you next big binge – and what’s more, it’s all personalised to you. Here’s where to find what…
Your telly journey starts with the new Personal Home Screen. Dive straight into all the channels, shows and apps you love, with options tailored just for you. Want to pick up where you left off? Head to Continue Watching. Looking to browse your Watchlists? They’re all right here. And if you’ve Rented a film or want to scroll through your Recordings, they’re here too.
What’s more, your personalised recommendations aren’t affected by what the rest of the family watches, so you get straight to the TV you actually like (handy when the little ones have been watching the same show for the last six months). To get to the Home fast, press the Home button on your Virgin TV 360 remote.
Find all the stuff you missed, right here, plus our pick of the shows from the last 30 days, handily sorted so you get to the best stuff quickly. Plus, the new Catch Up Catalogue makes it even easier to find.
Press the Home button on your Virgin TV 360 remote and highlight or move right to Catch Up then press OK to see all the catch-up content available. You’ll see our top picks and recommendations. You can also use your voice to get here by pressing the microphone button and saying, “Catch Up”.
From the homescreen highlight Recordings and press OK. Here you’ll find all your recordings and you’ll also be able to check out anything you’ve got lined up to record in Planned Recordings.
Want to get there fast? Highlight Recordings in the Home menu and press OK. Or if you want to flex that voice, press the microphone button and say, “Recordings”.
The fastest way to find out what’s on. Here, you can find all your channels. If a show has already started, you can use Startover to watch from the beginning.
To get to the Guide fast, highlight Guide on the homescreen and press OK. Alternatively, you can press the Guide button on your Virgin TV 360 remote, or hold the microphone button and say, “Guide”.
We always provide our customers with the best possible viewing experience.
