Fixing Virgin TV Anywhere

I am unable to use Virgin TV Anywhere app. What should I do?

We're as excited about the Virgin TV Anywhere app as you are - so let's get to the bottom of this. There are two typical problems that could be disrupting the service.

1. First, check that you are using your My Virgin Media account details properly. If you haven't registered yet, you can register now. If you're having trouble with your account details, you can have your password or username reset.

2. Another reason for not being able to use the Virgin TV Anywhere app could simply be a lack of service. Visit the support page, scroll to the middle, and enter your account number to check for any updates that may be affecting the services we offer in your area.


More unfortunately than above, if your services have been suspended due to late payment, you will not be able to watch TV using the Virgin TV Anywhere app. We sincerely hope this isn't the case.
