Virgin Media Staff

If the football’s on, it’s on Virgin Media


Earlier this month Virgin Media announced that we’d signed one of the biggest deals of the summer – bigger than Bastian Schweinsteiger to Manchester United and bigger even than Raheem Sterling to Manchester City.


That's right, BT Sport Europe HD has joined BT Sport channels - 1 HD, 2HD and BT Sport ESPN HD - on the Virgin Media platform from launch this Saturday - 1st August - and is now available to all TV XL customers and TV customers taking BT Sport as a bolt on. 


You can tune into BT Sport Europe HD on channel 529 and the BT Sport Europe channel can be found on 532.


In addition to BT Sport Europe HD, we have added more HD channels including Nat Geo Wild HD and Lifestyle HD.


Our TV Anywhere service offers 100 live channels to enjoy over WiFi and is currently the UK’s most comprehensive TV on-the-go service.


Our extended contract with BT means that in addition to the Uefa Champions League and Europa League matches, TV XL customers can enjoy a wide variety of sports content including: English Premier League Football (38 matches), FA Cup (25 matches), Aviva Premiership Rugby (69 matches), up to 500 matches from across the German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A and French Ligue 1, UFC, NBA (basketball), MLB (Baseball) and Moto GP.


There are more games than there are days in the year!


Son't forget you can also stream matches live on TV Anywhere via tablets, mobiles, laptops and PCs. #AllTheFootball
