Don’t miss a second of your favourite shows when you’re out and about with the Virgin TV Control app

Virgin TV Control app

We’ve all been there, sunning it up on a faraway shore with the pedalo parked in the dock, when all of a sudden it hits us… we didn’t set Antiques Roadshow to record!


Where before the thought would have scuppered any chance of a pedal-powered afternoon of watery wonderment, now the Virgin TV Control app means a solution is merely the tap of a screen away.


This handy app allows you to set up, manage and even delete recordings on your Virgin TV V6 or TiVo box from anywhere you might find yourself, meaning you won’t miss a single second of your favourite shows.


And if your Android or iOS device is connected to the same home network as your box, you can even use it as an advanced remote control! This means you can search for shows using a QWERTY keyboard – a much faster way of finding the live, Catch Up or On Demand show you’re after – and launch them straight onto your TV screen from within the app. You can even change the channel from another room to thoroughly confuse your partner/housemates/children.


If you’ve got a Virgin TV V6 box, you can use the app to watch selected recordings while connected to your home WiFi. You can even download them at home and then watch them through the app while on the go!


Intrigued? Then read on to find out how to download the app and get watching!
