Virgin Media offers TV anywhere cloud service

7 November 2012

Bitterwallet - Richard Branson blackmail at Virgin MediaVirgin Media has gone and unveiled a new cloud-based entertainment service called Virgin TV Anywhere.

The service will be available online through your computer, as well as tablets, smartphone apps and will stream (up to) 45 live TV channels (depending entirely on the package you have). So, you'll be able to watch Sky Movies in bed if you want.

Virgin TV Anywhere will also cover on-demand services from Sky, BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5.

The app is already available for you to get right now, provided you're the owner of an iPad or iPhone. Android users are going to have to wait a little longer before they can get their hands on the service. They'll have to wait 'til 2013 in fact, which is a bit lousy.

Is this going to challenge BSkyB’s Sky Go or Netflix? Probably not, but if you're a Virgin Media customer, this is certainly good news.
