Manage sub-accounts

The main account holder can register up to four other people in their home, so in total 5 accounts (including the primary account) can have access to Virgin TV Anywhere. Only two devices can be registered to watch content online and sub-accounts cannot watch content using the app. To register other people, you'll need to set up an account for each of them by following these simple steps:

Step 1

Sign in to My Virgin Media.

Step 2

Select My Profile at the top of the screen.

Step 3

Click the Manage accounts tab.

Step 4

Select View/Change on the right of the name of the person you'd like to add, or Create a new account if they don't have an account yet.

Step 5

Choose what level of access you'd like to give them using the TV Anywhere sliding bar.

If the sub-account is for a child, you can set up parental controls so they can't watch anything inappropriate.

This applies to On Demand content. Live TV shows in general follow normal watershed rules regarding what can be shown during daytime hours.

Step 6

Once you've chosen a setting, click on Update. You’ll see a green tick when your changes have been saved.


Ready to give TV Anywhere a go?

Please note that if you're a brand new customer or a new TiVo customer you may need to wait up to 24 hours before you can start to use TV Anywhere.


So that's what the app looks like. Now let's start watching.    Watching TV Anywhere
