Good news: our family of apps just got better. ITVX has arrived on Virgin TV, and it’s nothing short of brilliant – featuring more catch up, better box sets and brilliant shows from the US.


Customers with a V6 box, powered by TiVo®, a Virgin TV 360 box or Stream from Virgin Media can access ITVX at no extra cost. The ITVX app comes with an interface that’s smoother and simpler than ever to navigate, so you can find the content you’re searching for faster. Plus, there are loads of improved and new features.

You can discover tailored recommendations based on your viewing habits, so your next favourite show won’t be far away. While we love a big flashy opening credits sequence, new features like “Skip Intro” are perfect if you’re short on time. 


Other brilliant features include the 20 curated Fast Channels based on shows, genres and collections, all in HD, for Virgin TV 360 and Stream customers only. And if you’ve missed the start of a game? When watching live sport on ITVX, you can catch the highlights (live channels are not available on V6 box, powered by TiVo®)


As an added bonus for Full House or Maxit customers only, when catching up with shows on ITVX, you can fast forward through the ads (not available on Stream). Pretty nifty, eh?


And don’t forget ITVX Premium, which comes packed with 6,000 hours more content and access to BritBox programmes (plus no ads and the ability to download shows to a device). Of course, all content across ITVX will be available in dazzlingly clear HD, too.


Virgin TV brings together the entertainment you love, all in one place. Read on to find out how to access the ITVX app through your Virgin TV box – and the best shows and films to watch first. Appy days.


How to access ITVX on Virgin TV

First things first: your ITV Hub log-in will still work. Simply use your existing credentials to sign into the new app. The app can be found in the Apps section of the TV menu.


Please note, if you watch TV on a TiVo® box, you will be able to access ITV content through the Catch Up menu and in search. However, you will not have access to the ITVX app.
