virgin media tv anywhere

Virgin Media's TV Anywhere service is coming to the latest Android phones and tablets later this week.

The latest devices to get the service are the Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2, HTC One (M8), and Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. These are all the latest devices that run Google's Android operating system.

Virgin TV Anywhere lets Virgin Media TiVo subscribers watch shows and manage recordings on the go. It's currently available on 31 Android devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z1, and HTC One.

The update will open the app up to 25 more smartphones and tablets.

However, not all of the devices will be fully supported from launch.

A Virgin Media spokesperson told Recombu: "We are always looking at new ways to make Virgin TV Anywhere available to more customers on more devices. Later this week, the most comprehensive entertainment-anywhere service of its kind will be enabled for another 25 smartphones and tablets.

"Due to the volume of Android devices in the market, these have not gone through extensive testing to be classified as 'supported'. However, if customers experience any issues they can head over to the Virgin Media Community at community.virginmedia.com."

Once these devices are added, the service will be available on 80 smartphones and tablets. That puts it ahead of Sky Go, which is on 50 iOS and Android devices.

Virgin Media also confirmed that support for TV Anywhere on Xbox One has been delayed in favour of supporting more Android devices.
