It’s been a long time coming, but at last you can access Virgin Media TV Anywhere from your Android smartphone or tablet.

Billed as a competitor to Sky Go, Virgin TV Anywhere is a cloud-based service that gives you the ability to watch live TV over a Wi-Fi network. The service, free and exclusive for Virgin Media TiVo customers, was unveiled last year alongside an iOS app and browser-based portal for desktop users. Support for Android devices has been missing ever since, however.


To make amends, Virgin Media is adding an extra nine channels to its library: Alibi, Dave, Drama, Good Food, Home, Really, Watch, Yesterday and CBS Reality. This brings its final tally to 90 channels on the Web and 67 on smartphones and tablets – more than Sky Go, according to Virgin Media.

In addition to watching live TV, the new Android app can be used to manage recordings on your TiVo set-top box, review recommendations and even use your smartphone or tablet as a TV remote.
