I’m sorry but I don’t think that’s right.
I believe the Virgin TV Go app and the Sky Go app have exactly the same function for watching recordings - only at home. In addition, I think Sky Go is actually worse as you need a MultiRoom subscription to watch recordings.
Can you please give evidence that Sky Go can watch recordings when not at home, other than by downloading while at home?
I actually think that it’s very misleading advertising Virgin 360 as being able to watch Tv at home or on the go with the TV Go app, nowhere does it say you can’t watch recordings away from home
Why the hell would you want to watch your recordings whilst at home on your phone when you have a perfectly good large screen Tv? It makes no sense
I have no evidence that you can watch recordings on sky go app away from home it’s just what I’ve heard, if I’m wrong I stand corrected
I only upgraded to 360 so I could watch my recordings whilst I’m working away from home!
You cannot stream recordings outside the property where your boxes are registered as the broadcasters won’t allow it. If Virgin/Sky had their way your V360 box (and SkyQ) would not need their hard disks, as you could record to the “cloud” & access your content anywhere. The boxes have the technology built-in & it is in use in the rest of Europe. But until the broadcasters allow it here the providers can’t use it without ending up in court.
Some broadcasters will allow you to download programmes to your device while at home & then watch anywhere on that device. This certainly is available on Sky Go, so is likely also available on the TV Go app.
So, in summary, the function you want isn’t available through Virgin Media or Sky despite what you heard/assumed about the latter.
Also the functionality in this regard, is exactly the same between TiVo/V6 & TV360. The only difference is which app is used.
