Series Link+

  

  

  

Tracking down every episode of the shows you love can be pretty time-consuming, especially if they appear across live TV, On Demand or even Netflix

By Virgin TV Edit

The solution? Let your TiVo® or V6 box do the hard work for you by setting a Series Link+. This nifty feature will automatically record all the available episodes of your chosen show. 

 

You only have to set a Series Link+ once and then every time your show is available anywhere, from live TV to On Demand, it goes into one handy folder in My Shows.

You’ll never miss your must-see telly again because Series Link+ has got you covered no matter when or where your favourite binge-watch is on.
