Re: Tv anywhere on 4g

If you are using your mobile as a wi-fi hotspot, and connecting another device to it by Wi-Fi, TV Anywhere is satisfied that you are on Wi-Fi (which you are) and so it does work. I do it myself all the time. Of course you need to keep an eye on how much tetherable data you have available - TV Anywhere is low quality & low bitrate, so uses relatively little data, but Sky Go isn't & uses much more.

In general though, TV Anywhere is way inferior to Sky's offering for all the reasons outlined above, and more.

 

e2a: If BT Sport is important to you, forget all about relying on TV Anywhere to deliver it to you on the move. They've never successfully managed to do that, the service falling over on pretty much every big BT Sport matchday in the last 2 years.

Re: Tv anywhere on 4g

You can watch the Sky Sports channels over 3G and 4G mobile data. You need to install the Sky Sports App and be subscribed to the sky sports channels.

Re: Tv anywhere on 4g

I'm dismayed to find out this morning that I cannot stream content "anywhere" that doesn't have a Wi-Fi connection.

1 day in and I'm already sure to be going back to Sky at the end of my contract.

The sales people told me that the app does everything Sky go did.

Blatant lie!

Re: Tv anywhere on 4g

Yeah I’ve just moved back to VM from Sky and for some things it’s like going back to the dark ages (love the internet though.)

I’ve resorted to using the TVPlayer app from the AppStore, maybe you could give that a go.
Sure it’s basically Freeview but as I’m on unlimited data and go Binge from Three I’m pretty content with that and Netflix to take the sting out of Virgin Media’s archaic software efforts for now.

Seriously hope someone at VM realises just how behind and out of date they are at some point. I’ve got the V6 box, it does 4K, yay. But only Netflix. Well whoop, so does my TV, PlayStation, Apple TV, I need another Netflix player like I need a hole in the head. And before anyone mentions that not everyone has lots of devices, if they at least have a 4K TV, I’d put good money on it having 4K Netflix.

Re: Tv anywhere on 4g

Yes, right now ( November 2017)  it still appears that you can use it over a 4G hotspot, but not directly on 4G.very annoying when I have an unlimited 4G account on my tablet for viewing TV, but much lower allowances on my phone, especially for tethering!

Re: Tv anywhere on 4g

Hi BahnStormer,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

At the moment TV Anywhere can't be used on 3G or 4G.

 

The good news is we have a new app to replace TV Anywhere coming out next year! The app is called Virgin TV Go and will be available to use with mobile data as well as WiFi.

 

We'll have more news on this soon so watch this space!

 

All the best

 

Josh

TV Anywhere has been going for 6 years now & is still unfit for purpose, so let's not hold our breath here.
