Stream from Virgin Media is our entertainment service that brings all your favourite channels and subscriptions together

By Virgin TV Edit

We think entertainment should be simple. That’s why we’ve packed all your favourite channels and entertainment subscriptions into one clever little box: Stream from Virgin Media. This is our ace entertainment service that brings together everything you love to watch, from your favourite subscriptions (whether you’re a Sky Sports lover or Netflix obsessive) to the likes of iPlayer, YouTube and ITVX.


You can pick and mix your entertainment every month – and only pay for the stuff you love. As a nice little bonus, you can get at least 10% credit back on the subscriptions you add to Stream, so you can pocket a saving each month. It’s the quick and easy entertainment service that pairs perfectly with our lightning-fast broadband, offering speeds up to 22x faster than the UK average. And it’s available to both new and existing customers who take a Virgin Media broadband package at no additional monthly cost – whether you go for a broadband-only or broadband and home phone package.

What is Stream?

It’s our easy-to-use, flexible, and seamless TV streaming service. Just plug the Stream box into your TV to access favourite subscription services like Sky Sports, Netflix and Disney+ along with all the TV channels and apps you can’t live without, like BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and YouTube. Plus, search across all of them in one go with your voice.

What free channels and apps are included on Stream?

Stream gets you access to more than 40 free channels, plus 28 HD channels as standard. You can also access Catch Up and On Demand TV – including BBC iPlayer and BBC Sounds, ITVX, Channel 4, My5, YouTube and YouTube Kids.

What entertainment subscriptions are included on Stream? 

Your favourite paid-for subscription apps are available, including Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, Paramount+ and BritBox. There are also plenty of premium TV channel collections, from Sky Sports HD and Sky Cinema HD to TNT Sports and Kids Pick (which covers Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network channels).

You’ll get personalised recommendations for what to watch across all your entertainment subscriptions. And because we like to keep things flexible, you can add stuff in, swap it out and cancel or uncancel your subs every month. It’s as easy as turning them on or off.

One other thing – the whole point of Stream is to keep things, well, streamlined. So you’ll find all your channels and entertainment apps in one place, regardless of whether they’re free or paid-for. That means you don’t have to spend ages hopping between platforms or hunting for what to watch; just search once and stream away! Here’s a simple guide to managing your subscriptions with Stream.


How much does Stream cost?

Get Stream for just a £35 activation fee with one of our broadband packages with no additional monthly cost unless you choose to add a premium subscription. If you do want to add subscriptions to your Stream box, the cost of these will be included in one simple bill from Virgin Media every month – no matter how many subs you’ve got on the go.

And if you decide you’re done with a particular streaming service for now, there’s no stress. With Stream, you can take a break and change things up every month, so you’re never stuck paying for anything you don’t use.

Do you get any discounts by using Stream?

Absolutely. We’ll give you at least 10% credit back on every subscription you add to Stream and pay for through your Virgin Media bill, so you can pocket a little saving each month. Because if you’re a big fan of entertainment, we’re a big fan of you.

How do you use Stream?

Just plug the Stream box into your TV to enjoy all that Stream has to offer. The remote’s super-powerful Voice Search and Control function lets you find what you’re looking for by speaking out loud, so you can dive into your faves faster. And if you’ve got a 4K-ready TV, you can enjoy them in glorious Ultra HD.

Stream doesn’t stop when you’re out and about! Catch top telly through the Virgin Media TV Go app. Subscribed to Sky Sports? Then dive into the action on the Sky Sports app. Plus you can enjoy your Netflix or Disney+ subscription through their apps, too!
