Virgin TV Anywhere – the cable company's mobile TV service – has added 15 more live channels, including news broadcasters Al Jazeera and France 24, celebrity tittle-tattle specialists E!, and Indian music channel Zing.

The announcement brings the total number of channels on Virgin TV Anywhere to 107. That's 40 more than on Sky Go, Sky's equivalent service.

"The new channels we've added will enable customers to keep up with the news from around the world, ramp up the suspense with an exciting drama or listen to the latest music on the go," Scott Kewley, Virgin Media's director of digital entertainment, said in a statement.

"Their arrival means we've more than doubled the amount of channels available on the go to our TV customers since the service launched two years ago, further extending our lead as the provider of the most comprehensive entertainment-anywhere service in the UK."

The freshly added channels in full are: Al Jazeera, ARY News, B4U Music, E!, Forces TV, France 24, Ginx, Lahme, NDTV 24*7, NHK World HD, The Africa Channel, TV5 and Zing.

Two more "major entertainment channels" will also come to the service next month, though Virgin Media wouldn't say what they are.

Virgin TV Anywhere is available to all Virgin Media customers online, but the iOS and Android apps are only available to TiVo subscribers.
