What you need:
• a compatible Android mobile or tablet with WiFi internet in the UK
• a TiVo® box
• your My Virgin Media username and password
• Android version OS 2.3.3 & above for mobiles and 4.0 & above for tablets.

For security reasons and to protect the rights of our content partners Virgin TV Anywhere is not supported on rooted devices, where unauthorised modifications have been made to the operating system.

Manage TiVo means you can set recordings, change series links, delete recordings, see what’s on TV, and use your mobile or tablet as an advanced remote control. Some older Android devices are not capable of providing an acceptable quality of live TV streaming or content security, and whilst we allow some of these devices to be used to manage TiVo, we block them from being used to watch TV.

If your device is not on these lists, you can still use our TV Guide app for Android to record episodes and set series links for TiVo away from home. Search for TV Guide
in Google Play on your device.

The list of supported devices is updated regularly, so please check back again.


Unsupported devices

The following devices have been enabled to download and use TV Anywhere. While we expect them to work, we have not been able to test all of them, due to the large number of Android devices available, an d we are not able to give support for the TV Anywhere app on these devices. If you do have a problem, you can always head over to the Virgin Media Community at community.virginmedia.com to chat with our other users, or visit our extensive online help at virginmedia.com/help/tvanywhere.
