My daughter goes to halls of residence at uni this September. Can she use our home Virgin Media app to watch TV on her laptop?

Yes. The TV Go app/website will work on any internet connection within the UK to watch live channels & On Demand content. What you cannot do is watch content recorded on the TV box directly.

Hi @davifels 

If she connects her laptop using an HDMI cable to her TV (if she has one) she should be able to watch live channels on her TV.

Great and thanks for your help. 

Thanks. She'll probably use her laptop screen.
