Using Virgin TV Go on a Samsung Smart TV

Having just recently been upgraded to two new V6 boxes, I thought great, I can access my account on a tablet, or PC, so a Smart TV should work, shouldn't it?

Wrong!!! - unless anybody can tell me otherwise?

I can't download the App, and I'm locked-out on the TV web browser?

So in the same room - I can view my account on a tablet, but not on the adjacent TV?

Re: Using Virgin TV Go on a Samsung Smart TV

it only works on phones and tablet and PC's smart TV's and casting to TV's is not allowed

Re: Using Virgin TV Go on a Samsung Smart TV

If you want it on a second TV then the only route is Multi-room (which you have to pay £7.50 a month extra for). Why should VM shoot themselves in the foot & give you an easy route to bypass having a second TV box?

Thanks for your reply.

But that's not the issue. If you look at my original message, I'm already paying the extra for a second box - I just want to view it on another TV!!

Then you need a 3rd box

...I know, I figured that out.

Where's the logic in that?

So much for the 'sales pitch' and the wonderful adverts?

Re: Using Virgin TV Go on a Samsung Smart TV

Some customers happily pay for more than 2 boxes. So what I have said still applies.
