What channels are on Virgin Media TV?

Virgin Media TV is probably Sky TV’s biggest rival in the digital TV market, with hundreds of TV channels that can be included in its broadband and TV packages. The channels included in Virgin Media TV will depend on the TV package or bundle you purchase.

Channels on virgin media TV

In many ways, Virgin TV is now comparable to Sky, with its V6 box on par with Sky Q in terms of its functionality and access to channels and additional services. The most notable exception is access to Sky Atlantic, meaning Sky and NOW are still the only two platforms where you can watch the latest blockbuster US TV shows from networks like HBO and Showtime.

However, Virgin Media customers do have access to some of the fastest broadband speeds in the UK which may make up for the lack of HBO shows.

Virgin TV Big Bundle (100+ channels)

Virgin Media’s Big Bundle includes their Mixit TV package which gives you access to over 100 channels, including a range of free-to-air channels, entertainment, lifestyle and factual channels as well as regional channels and radio.
