Use BBC iPlayer if you've a recent Samsung TV.
I do find this rather amusing :"Not a great endorsement of Virgin! Pure greed! For what you have to pay, they could at least allow one of the TV Go devices to be a smart tv."A TV Go device to be a smart TV, that supposes that you can carry about a TV from room to room or when you are out and about. The app is intended for portable devices, not for TV's smart or otherwise.I can just imagine the next complaint "Why can I not watch my 60 inch smart TV when I am in the supermarket, Virgin get your act together and get this sorted out" PMSL

The "small fee" you pay for this is the additional multi-room subscription.
That said, according to the BBC you should be able to set your TV's iPlayer app to your local region which may eliminate the issue.
Or, if you're resigning yourself to running coax from the nearest aerial point, why not instead run an HDMI cable from the nearest V6 box with using a splitter?
Thanks. I thought about running a cable from the V6 box, but it's not practical. Would need to take up floorboards and drill through 12" walls. Also, I've heard this is not a workable solution.

Wireless HDMI sender?
Not heard of that one. How would it work?

HDMI in from a splitter, then sends wirelessly to the receiver which you plug into the TV.
Not a clue on cost/effectiveness, as with anything wireless it's subject to environment. Which is why I originally suggested just a long cable.
Instead of using a laptop, i use an android box (minix neo x8-h) works perfectly and hidden behind my Samsung 55” oled tv in my caravan in wales, vm box at home.
i refuse to pay twice for anything!
