Virgin Media Launches Netflix Movies Service on TiVo to UK Homes

Tuesday, Nov 12th, 2013 (10:41 am) - Score 2,014

Virgin Media, which in September became the first Pay-TV provider in the United Kingdom to offer the Netflix unlimited movie streaming service via its TiVo based broadband Video-on-Demand (VoD) platform, has announced that the new service is now out of the “successful” pilot phase and available to customers. Some will even get it for free.

The new Netflix TiVo app means that around 1.8 million customers will have access to the service and as a special bonus those who subscribe to Virgin Media’s Premiere or VIP Collections will be able to enjoy six months of Netflix movies at no extra cost (£5.99 a month thereafter). But sadly you’ll have to re-contract for another 12-months to get the “gift“.

It’s worth reminding readers that Virgin’s TiVo set-top box has its own dedicated connection, which doesn’t suck bandwidth from your broadband package. Existing Netflix members will also be able to use their current log-in on Virgin’s TiVo.

Dana Strong, Virgin Medias Chief Operating Officer, said:

With the addition of our Netflix app, Virgin Media customers have an unbeatable line-up of movies and TV series to choose from. Whether it’s part of a subscription or pay-per-view, Virgin Media TiVo will help you find everything from the classic gem you’ve always wanted to watch to this summer’s biggest hits, all seamlessly integrated for simple, easy viewing.

People love watching with Virgin Media TiVo and we continue to lead the way as the fastest growing pay TV service in the country. In two years, 1.8 million homes have signed up to Virgin Media TiVo and what we believe is the best way to watch television.”

The Netflix app can be found under the Apps & Games section of Virgin Media TiVo and coincides with the latest updates to the system, which also improved the STB’s energy efficiency and added other features like improved WishLists™ and recommendations.
