Sky Cinema is on TV Go!

From today you can watch all Sky Cinema channels and a library of its on demand movies through the Virgin TV Go app, and up to five devices can be registered on the app, which is perfect for multiroom viewing.

The Sky Cinema app is still available to view this content, but Sky is closing the app from Tuesday 11 August, so we'd recommend using Virgin TV Go from now on to ensure you don't miss out.

You can read more about this exciting news in our press release:

Re: Sky Cinema is on TV Go!

That ad for the separate Sky Cinema app will likely be removed soon.

The channels are working fine in the Windows 10 app here. This is a search for some of the Cinema channels or you can use the Live TV Guide to see them all or get the On Demand content from the Sky channels option

Thanks @BenMcr , I consider myself educated now.

But why make that opening screen clickable. It needs to be fixed, as it raises questions about "an enhanced viewing experience."!

Re: Sky Cinema is on TV Go!

Sky Cinema on Demand is not properly up to date on the app.

On the Tivo Box there is the option to choose the type of movie you are looking for and there are a whole host of movies that are on the Tivo BOX but not on the app, even if you use the search function to look for a particular movie.

Re: Sky Cinema is on TV Go!

Hi @yellowpjs 

We'll gladly look into that for you, could you give me an example of a movie that's available on the box but not on the app please?

Re: Sky Cinema is on TV Go!

Hi @yellowpjs 

Thanks for the example. I've checked this with our apps team, and I can confirm that at the moment we've made a selection of the top content available, plus all the new daily premieres. We'll complete the full catalogue on the app later in the year.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

Re: Sky Cinema is on TV Go!

So I am paying for a service that doesn't actually have all films that it advertises on the service?

Is there a more precise timeline than later on in the year?

If you look on the bright side at least you can now watch some of the Sky Cinema content as a VM subscriber on a mobile device or desktop computer.

This hasn't been possible for a couple of years via the, soon to be withdrawn, Sky Cinema app.
