Why doesn't TV Anywhere work over 3G

Why can't we stream live TV over the mobile network as you can on Sky?  Additionally, why are we so limited as to the channels that we can watch?

You can't use 3G as Virgin Media do not have the agreement of the broadcasters to do so.

 

There are a large number of channels which are streamable, more than Sky.

I must admit that I do not know whether sky stream less or more than Virgin but they do allow you to stream over the mobile network.  Perhaps Mr Branson should be taking more of an interest in the services provided rather than just the broadband speed.

The sorry fact is that broadband speed is the only thing VM are a market leader in. For everything else, they are struggling to keep up.

Hi leemansfield, 

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums Smiley Happy

 

You can see how many channels are available to us compared to Sky and BT here: http://store.virginmedia.com/discover/tv/on-the-go/channels.html

 

Quite a difference Smiley Happy

 

We're always looking at ways to improve the TV Anywhere service so keep your eyes peeled on the Announcements section here: http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/News/bd-p/Virgin-Media-News

 

Thanks,

If you make your iPhone a hotspot and connect a device to the wifi you create you can then stream over 3G it's s pain but how I get around it.
