virgin go app this programme can only be played on your virgin tv box

Joining in

The virgin go app states “this programme can only be played on your virgin tv box” when trying to watch recordings of the formula 1 and I can’t watch it. Any ideas why?

Hi @Wahwahwahr 👋 Thank you for your post 😀

Sorry to hear about the problem you've been having 😔 Have you tried accessing Virgin TV Go through the website, rather than the app? If so, does that make any difference?

You can access the website by clicking here.

Hope that helps, but please pop back to us if no further forward.

Are you a TiVo/V6 customer, or a TV360 one?

TV Go is used for mobile-streaming for TiVo/V6, and recording-management on TV360. So are you trying to view a recording , or a live programme?

If it's a recording, are you talking about C4 or Sky Sports F1?

Thanks WahWahWahr,

Are you having issues when trying to watch any other recordings from the app? It's possible that you're unable to watch this recording from the app due to licensing reasons.

Also, are you trying to watch the recording with your device connected to your home network, or over a mobile data connection?

Let us know 🙂
