Why are some programmes unavailable on TV Go app?

When trying to watch episodes of Brooklyn 99 on the app I get the following message: 

“This programme can only be played on your virgin tv box”

This happens on all episodes/seasons. 

Any ideas why?

Thanks.

Re: Why are some programmes unavailable on TV Go app?

Has Virgin GO, ever fully worked?  I used the previous version (whatever it was called)

All the various channels, bbc, itv, Ch 4, Ch 5 & UKchannel   I WATCH NOW VIA MY BROWSER and the various players

>>GO<<  DOESN'T WORK - is a pain, always has been a pain

Plain and simple, IT IS NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE.  If you ever manage to START a programme be prepared to go and watch it on your t.v. if you want to know the end

I watch GO, more to the point I TRY, on a laptop - whilst crafting.  

It is not my laptop, it is not my internet connection, since I can watch via players & browser.  SO IT HAS TO BE VIRGIN

Wish they would simply PULL THEIR FINGER out and FIX IT.

Considering also, you pay for a FULL TV PACKAGE, and GO is a CUT DOWN VERSION.  With specific programming ''NOT AVAILABLE ON THIS PLATFORM'' because of copyright.

oh, so it’s a copyright issue. 

re everything else... yea I’ve not been impressed with it. Most stuff isn’t available & you should be able to watch stuff from your planner.

Thanks for your post and for reaching out to the Community Forums, Gm4n,

 

You would be right that the above message you mentioned would be due to licensing which may limit viewing to one platform. By planner do you mean your recordings? You can view your recording from the TV Control app, if this helps.

 

Cheers,

Corey C
