Sky sports on virgin anywhere

I recently purchased sky sports and I am unable to stream sky sports through my virgin anywhere on my iPhone.

Any idea why this is? I can access the other channels fine. I understood that this could be done when I went for the sports package.

Thanks

Hi Raligt, 

 

To watch Sky Sports via TV Anywhere you would need to be using a laptop or pc and go to the website

anywhere.virginmedia.com

 

You can stream your sports programmes through here Smiley Happy

 

Thanks,

I would not hold your breath. They said a year ago they were developing an android app for the Tivo and that's gone very silent too.

They're just too tight to pay for the rights to stream channels to TV Nowhere.

Hi,

 

Just looked at the anywhere.virginmedia.com web page and i can't see Sky Sports?

 

Has VM took these channels off the anywhere service?

 

In fact, can't see ANY sports channels.

 

TIA
