Virgin Media TV Anywhere app iPad

Virgin Media's online streaming service has triumphed in two categories at the international TV Connect Awards.

Virgin TV Anywhere took the gongs for Best Multiscreen Service and Best Live Online TV Service or Solution at the awards ceremony in Piccadilly, London.

The platform allows customers with TiVo to watch and manage content on their computers, smartphones and tablets - as opposed to their TV set - for no extra cost.

Scott Kewley, Director of Digital Entertainment at Virgin Media, said the reception to Virgin TV Anywhere since its launch 18 months ago has been "fantastic". "We’ve been working hard to give our customers the best entertainment-anywhere experience," he stated.

A total of 46 live channels have now been added to the online platform and 43 to the app.

Mr Kewley said this makes the service "by far the most comprehensive of its kind in the UK".

"Since the introduction of Virgin Media TiVo and Virgin TV Anywhere, we have seen significant changes in the way people watch TV," he stated.

"Already two-thirds of programmes are being watched without the viewer first going to the TV guide and navigating the list of hundreds of channels to get to what they want."

Mr Kewley said it is "exciting" to see how viewing habits continue to evolve in Britain.

He explained that around 60 per cent of all viewing through Virgin TV Anywhere is done on tablets, 30 per cent is on a computer and around ten per cent is on other mobile devices.

"If you haven’t tried Virgin TV Anywhere yet and are a Virgin Media TiVo customer, don’t miss out - you’re just a few clicks away from enjoying the UK’s newly-crowned best multiscreen service," Mr Kewley added.
