Why isn’t Virgin Radio readily available?

Now Chris Evans has left Radio 2 why can’t I get Virgin Radio on TIVO?

Re: Why isn’t Virgin Radio readily available?

Because there is no agreement between Virgin Radio & VM to carry the station. And like Virgin Media, Virgin Radio is only a brand lease. VM is owned by Liberty Global in America. Virgin Radio is owned by Bauer Media group.

With the introduction of the Radioline app (which is carrying it) on the V6 it’s unlikely VM will add any more radio stations to the EPG. If anything, like LBC they will be leaving as it frees up VMs resources for further TV & Broadband use.

Thanks for the pointer to the Radioline app.  Great to now have access so many more radio feeds.
