Is the Samsung Galaxy s6 edge Android 5.1.1 compatible with TV Anywhere? When I try to watch a programme, it keeps flashing 'reconnecting'. I deleted my other devices on my desktop because I couldn't do it on my phone. I managed to connect my new device, but when I went to watch something, it kept telling my to register my device. I get the feeling that I should just get a box for my bedroom, because I've had nothing but problems with this app!
I deleted my other two devices because I no longer have them, and then registered my s6 edge. When I sign in, it either keeps flashing 'reconnecting' or when it does connect, and I go to watch something, it says, "register your device". Well it is registered, because I've seen it!
Hope you can help.
ps my previous devices were s5 which I also had problems with, and the tab 4, which worked perfectly and they're all Samsung Galaxies!
Thank you for your post on the Forum. Sorry to hear that you are having problems getting the TV Anywhere app to work with your Samsung S6 Edge. I have the same make/model of phone and I've been testing this with the app.
While the Samsung Edge isn't supported by Virgin Media, you should be able to run the TV Anywhere app. I've been able to access the guide and stream live channels. Are you still having the same issue?
When you are trying this, are you going through a WiFi connection? If you are trying this via a 3G or 4G connection, it isn't going to work--it has to be through WiFi. If the problem is still ongoing, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app.
Please let me know how you get on with this.

When I go into the app on my s6 edge, It flashes, 'reconnecting'. The only way I can get out of the app is to press the home button. Pressing the back button doesn't do anything! When I do get into the app, I load the programme I want to watch but it tells me to register my device. It's already registered because I did it on my pooter, I couldn't do it on my phone! My wifi is turned on. I am aware that the app doesn't work without wifi. As a matter of interest, would VPN prevent it from working?
Just a little update. It was my VPN that was causing the problem! When I went into the app and my wifi kicked in, it came on but I still couldn't watch anything, so I deleted my phone, then re-instated it, then I was able to watch something 'til my VPN kicked in then it threw it out, so I disconnected it. It's now working properly.
