Laptop Use

Hi Guys,

Apologies if this is an old question.

I'm working away from home and trying to make best use of my virgin subscription by using TV Go on my laptop. I'm on old school Windows 7.

1. Is the app downloadable to the Windows system.

2. Will I have access to my full package

3. Will I be able to watch my recorded shows (once I download the TV Control app too?)

If I can't do this then I need to consider downgrading my package as I will not be getting value for money with it.

David

Re: Laptop Use

Hello

1) I am afraid that the TV Go isnt available on Windows 7 as there is no app store, you can use the website to watch - https://virgintvgo.virginmedia.com/en.html

2) You will have access to your full channels the exceptions are any that use Sky Sports App / Cinema as these apps cannot run on a computer.

3) Again the TV Control App isn't available for desktops.

There is a way around this is too install Bluestacks onto your laptop and then you can run all the apps as BlueStacks is an Android Emulator for the PC.

Re: Laptop Use

Thanks Shadow,

Having explored all possibilities I have downgraded my package as I can't take advantage of all that I am paying for while working away from home.
