Enjoy a spooky treat on us! You’ve got some of our most popular kids channels at no extra cost until 30 October

By Virgin TV Edit

We’re giving you a little something extra this half-term to help you keep the kids entertained, because you can now access seven extra kids TV channels on Virgin Media and in Box Sets at no extra cost.


It’s true! In addition to the channels you already have as part of your Virgin TV pack, you’ll now find Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Cartoonito, Nickelodeon, NickToons, Nick Jr. and Nick Jr. Too – all available to watch for the entire month. From pre-school kids to teens, there’s something for all ages.


Throughout this spooookiest of months you can enjoy ghostly goings-on every day on Boomerang where it’s Scoobtober, with loads of episodes featuring everyone’s favourite mystery-solving, sandwich-munching Great Dane and his human pals. Plus in half-term, there’s a real treat for Teen Titans Go! fans as the hilariously incompetent young heroes take over Cartoon Network all week long.  


Over on Nickelodeon, Star Trek: Prodigy returns with new episodes in October so fans can find out what happened to Dal R’El, Gwyn, Jankom Pog, Murf and the rest of the crew and follow them on an even more epic interstellar adventure!


And as well as these kids channels, we’re unlocking 100s of episodes of their most popular shows in Box Sets, so you can watch them whenever you want, also at no extra cost.


You don’t need to do anything. It will all happen automatically through the magic of your telly box. Read on to find out more about what’s on these channels and where you can find them with our rundown below…
