On the TV Anywhere app I am unable to stream channels over 3G. Why is this? When I had Sky I was able to stream over 3G with my Sky Go app; it was much more convenient than having to search for a WIFI signal.
I agree totally, still unable to does this and it certainly does not qualify as "tv anywhere". I think this seriously needs to be looked at as i have just left sky tv (had virgin internet for around 15 years) and im very disappointed with the virgin anytime for more than one reason! No streaming over 3g, can only have 1 primary device! All other aspects is great and beats sky hands down but in this day and age people need tv on the go and it appears to be one very weak area with virgin media
When I first had the app it let me do it on 3G, even though the description said it couldn't be done. Then they updated the app and took this "glitch" out so it has to be wifi. There must be an actual reason why Virgin doesn't allow this. Surely it doesn't cost them anymore money
So, almost 9 months on and this still hasn't been sorted out. I've just signed up for this service and can't believe in this day and age Virgin is stopping us using our high speed data plans as we see fit by blocking 3G/4G access.
People are asking for it, Sky already does it, so why can't we have it?

well lets look at it this way, multiroom has virtually no useable channels to stream between rooms on a closed network, it looks like the same restrictions are in for the tv NOwhere app as well. The broadcasters restrictions excuse is getting very old now especially when you consider that sky do this capably over 3 Blooming G.
Until virgin sort out that mess i cannot see tv NOwhere being any use in the near future.
the only thing ive found this app to be useful for was to record the footie the other night when i was at work and the wife wasnt answering the phone, but i was able to do this on an old app about 2 years ago when i first got tivo.
This really needs sorting. Only being able to use over wifi doesn't make it 'TV ANYWHERE'. Sky have been doing it for years bout time virgin got with the times. Also for those who say 'it's to do with the broadcasters' can you explain the difference between viewing over wifi on a mobile device and viewing over 3G?
