SOLVED TV Anywhere Streaming on ANDROID

You CAN use TV anywhere on Android devices to stream live TV.

 

I was excited and then disappointed when I received my Galaxy Tab 4 with 7 inch screen. TV Anywhere would not work!!

Ok so check the supported devices at http://help.virginmedia.com/system/selfservice.controller?CONFIGURATION=1001&PARTITION_ID=1&secureFl...

It was not listed.

 

I then tried various things to get it to work.  Found that Chrome is not supported. Then I found that there is a simple solution and cannot understand why Virgin has not told everyone about it........unless of course it would allow rooted devices to work also?? I don't know. I just know that after I followed the instruction here http://www.comes1st.com/androidflash.shtml and I also downloaded Firefox for android afterwards, then I tried TV Anywhere and it worked, FULLY. 

 

All I can say is it worked on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. The download file is for androids not just Samsung so in theory it should work for all androids.................................unless of course it works for rooted devices and in which case this post will be deleted BUT THE WORD IS OUT THERE NOW, YOU CAN'T STOP IT!!!

Re: SOLVED TV Anywhere Streaming on ANDROID

Hmmmmmmm. YESTERDAY I was watching TV at work in my lunchbreak using my S6 and TV Anywhere. TODAY it will not work unless I am at home on the same network.  KUDOS for anyone can tell me why it suddenly does not work.

Re: SOLVED TV Anywhere Streaming on ANDROID

It could be that only some channels are supported for TV Anywhere streaming. MOD can you tell me?

Re: SOLVED TV Anywhere Streaming on ANDROID

That's correct, only some channels can be streamed.

 

The TV Anywhere app can display just a list of the streaming channels and they are also indicated by a "wi-fi" type icon in the channel list.
