Just as the Subject implies... What exactly is it? Is it the ability to take movies, tv shows, etc., and put them onto some other device? I've just got Virgin not too long ago, so I was reading the little booklet they give you, trying to figure things out, and I came across Virgin on the go. It said something about having Virgin while on the train or something, but I don't suppose you take your actual V6 box on a train, do you? I don't even know how that would work.
Sorry, the double post was due to something on the web page. It said something like it's not going through, so I went to the previous page and done it again.
As for the topic, I still don't get it. I watched the video, but it wasn't too clear. I get that you can watch things away from home, but do you download the content from the V6 box to your other device before you actually leave the home, or can you just access stuff at will while out and about using a tablet or phone or whatever?
TV on the Go - Lets you watch live TV and on demand programs on a phone\tablet away from home, there's no need to download beforehand.
TV Control - Lets you set\delete recordings on your V6 box away from home, plus you can also view recordings from your V6 box on it while at home and download recordings to your phone\tablet while at home that you can then watch away from home. Though this is not available for all programs\channels as the rights owners sometimes restrict it.
Does TV on the go let you watch anything that you could watch at home? What about stuff you've previously recorded on the box, while at home; can you access that stuff, or is it just the live stuff and the on demand stuff?
So, the TV Control option is just one of those things that lets you control the recording of things while at home? I'm guessing you can't access this option if you're away from home, right? That would be some long-distance control if it's just a local hardware thing.😆
I'm not even sure what TV Control is and what it involves. Is TV Control just a way to access the box from another device, like a tablet or mobile?
What was that you were saying about the owners and rights and all that? Are there programs that you can download to the box and watch but not to the mobile device like the tablet or phone? If so, I'm guessing that's because the owners don't want people passing the device around and showing 10 different people the same thing, while losing potential income. Makes sense.
