TV on the go

Ever wanted to catch up on your favourite show while nursing a latte in your local café, or while someone else is hogging the big TV downstairs? With Virgin Media's on the go services, your TV experience is right there in your pocket, giving you the freedom to watch what you want, when you want, wherever you want!

TV Anywhere


Pop the Virgin TV Anywhere app onto your mobile device and you can watch live telly anywhere that you can access a WiFi signal. If you prefer to watch TV Anywhere on your laptop or computer (perhaps while the kids have taken over the living room TV) you can watch live TV, hours of TV On Demand, and access Catch Up.

TV Anywhere remote function


Lost the remote? No problem. With the TV anywhere app, you can control your TV box directly from your mobile or tablet. At home you can turn your device into a handy remote control, and when you're out and about you can manage all your recordings through the app so you’ll never miss out on your favourite shows.
Cancel planned recordings to record something better instead, delete recordings to make space.... how cool is that?

Top Tips

Swipe onto your TV

Found something awesome on your TV Anywhere app? Swipe the image of your chosen programme towards your TV box and it'll appear on screen. Magic.

It can be live, On Demand, recorded or even a Netflix show.
