Virgin on the go app has always worked on my kindle fire HD until now. Tried to download new update and it doesn't work anymore. Have read a few reviews of similar issues, does anyone know if this can be resolved? When I renewed my virgin contract they assured me I would still be able to use the app.
I have spoken to Virgin and they asked me to wait a few days while they update the update! Now I know I am wasting my time! I wish they'd have told me this when I agreed to extend my contract based upon being able to use on the go tv on my kindle!
I use the Virgin TV anywhere app all the time on my Kindle, updated the app today and it wouldnt install properly, but had no idea why until i read this. So now I can no longer use the app at all! Nice of Virgin to let us know!
I've been with Vrgin Media since they took over NTL....Time to say goodbye and move to Sky i think.
google may be able to find you a safe older version that you can sideload, It is wise to backup apps you like , especially on n older tablet so that you can restore them and then turn off updates.
but Android 4.03 is ancient, and in time more and more apps will no longer work -
I just bought a used 2012 kindle HD8.9 to set up in KIds mode for our grandchildren and there are several big name apps that I cannot install because they need android 4,1 minimum: e.g. Dropbox, Plex, BBC i-player downloads ( though streaming still works). Amazon Cloud drive ( a surprising omission but you have to use tabs on the device instead, which cannot access any uploaded personal videos, or anything else except photos ) ... and now TVa.
The kids don't need those but the new BBC I-player for Kids is also android 4.1 minimum so that will not install. instead we wil have to faff around with parental controls in the regular bbc i -player. app instead & I can't install some of the Dr Seuss interactive books / apps in amazon underground.
Good value tablets though , if you can live without or work around those things, I got the full HD 8.9 inch tablet for £55 with a 12 month Tesco outlet warranty from ebay, and a good quality new case for £1.95 also from ebay.. May regret it if the new HD 8 goes on sale at £60 in January, but we waited all through black Friday week for that to happen - no joy.
