tv anywhere for xbox one

hi, can someone at virgin explain why the xbox one is not currently able to stream tv anywhere, in a previous post virgin states that tv anywhere can now stream via microsoft edge on windows 10 platform, xbox one uses microsoft edge on windows 10 aswell as far as i know, the only difference is that the xbox one has version 11 of the flash player, surely it is easy to sort this, so why haven't you?, in a previous post you have stated that you are paramountly dealing with android, surely virgin group being one of biggest companies on the planet this is a simple task, from the customers point of view all you care about is the money and not the well being of your customers, when virginmedia was telewest the main goal was the customers peace of mind and enjoyment of the product, looks like virgin are in it just for the money,

Re: tv anywhere for xbox one

Hi DNW3576,

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. Great to see a new face in the crowd. 

 

Currently TV Anywhere is not available to be used with any games console. That's not to say it won't ever be. 

 

We are always taking on your feedback on this and the team are aware this is a popular option. We just have to wait and see if our dreams become a reality Smiley Happy

 

Thanks,

Hi stuey2510, 

 

Thanks for your post and I'm sorry to say we have no current plans to bring TV Anywhere to your Game Console. 

 

You can still use it via a PC / Laptop, your Mobile and Tablet devices and even the latest Kindles. 

 

if and when we have plans to expand the base, we'll be sure to let you know Smiley Happy 

 

Thanks,

Re: tv anywhere for xbox one

Hi Kath,

I understand that a console application is not on Virgin's roadmap, but are you able to shed light on the reasoning behind this?  Is it due to the direction the company has decided to take? or is it due to limitations with the makers of the consoles (Microsoft/Sony) not wanting to or already have agreements setup with Sky to be a sole provider of content?

I think some clarity on this issue which has been going on for sometime would be of help, at the moment all the blame is being directed towards Virgin when it may just be legally impossible for them to develop such an app?

I'm hoping that we are able to get a straight answer from someone at Virgin with regards to this issue.

Kindest regards
MJ
