Hi @FrancesHinden 

It's possible that you've been trying to sign into TVGO using your contact email address in error.

You need to log into the TVGO app using the same email address that you use to log in to MyVirginMedia 

Also if you haven't already, then you need to register for TVGO using the same email address that you use to log in to MyVirginMedia

I am using the email address I use for Virgin Media. 
i already have an issue that I never receive any bills by email, only unsolicited marketing material, but this is the only address they have ever had. 

Perhaps it is complicated by the fact that my account was transferred to me from my husband’s name when he became ill. I no longer have access to his emails. 

Hi FrancesHinden,

Thanks for the additional information, so I can take a closer look at this for you, I've popped you over a private message (purple envelope, top right hand corner)
