I have been using the TV Go app with the new TV360 platform for a few days now and it is in need of additional functionality when used connected to home network. It needs to be able to stream anything (live or recorded) from the 360 boxes, not the limited channels/content available currently. Until it can do this it will never be a competitor to Sky’s Q system.
I understand that this is a limitation imposed by contracts/licensing, but Virgin really need to resolve. This functionality needs to be a requirement of carriage before deals are signed otherwise Virgin customers will always get a 2nd rate service and TV360 will never live up to its clear potential.
I take back (most of) my original post. Must’ve had a fault the past couple of days as most content on the app was only available to “Watch on TV”, but all seems to be working now! Apologies for that misinformation.
Virgin still need to sort BBC & Sky Sports though - don’t like going to separate apps. I understand the catchup stuff with BBC as that’s the way the BBC restrict their content on all platforms, but live streaming is allowed in home on Sky Q so Virgin should have the same option!
