No. There is no agreement with Virgin & Britbox to carry their app at the present time.

The advertising you see for Britbox is controlled by the TV channel you are viewing, not the TV platform provider you are using to view it. Everyone viewing that channel, be they on Freeview, Freesat, Sky, Virgin or others will still see it.

Re: Britbox

I haven't seen Britbox advertising that they are available on Virgin.

Virgin don't carry the Britbox app yet, although that may change in the future.

Amazon Prime have an app on the V6 and TV 360 boxes. If you subscribe to Amazon Prime then you can subscribe to the Britbox channel via the Prime app.

Re: Britbox

You might well also find some of the programmes Britbox have, are available via alternative means. I've not looked at their content listings to check, but it's often the case that Netflix & Prime, overlap with boxset content to some degree.

Re: Britbox

You can now subscribe to Britbox as an amazon prime add on. You can then watch Britbox on the V6 through the amazon prime app. It's a little harder to find all available programs but if you know what is available you can search for it. There is also a free 7 day trial available.
