Can I use TV anywhere?

Whilst checking my account details earlier I found that I apparently have included in my package TV anywhere. But on looking at this forum I get the impression that I can't use this as I don't have a Tivo box?

So can anyone please tell me if I can use this service or not?

I have a V+ box on the tv and use a Google Nexus 7 tablet using android 5.1.1

Works with TiVo only. That's because it was developed originally as a "remote control" for TiVO with streaming added later.

You'll have to upgrade to TiVo if you want TVA

All Virgin Media customers have access to TV Anywhere on a PC via a browser. It is only the mobile apps that require TiVo for the reasons already supplied by Howard.

 

Plenty of information such as this on the website:

Re: Can I use TV anywhere?

I don't bother with it anyway and I have a TiVO and a tablet. There is a time and place for TV and for me that is strictly in my living room on a screen big enough to watch comfortably.
