Virgin offers internet TV service

Virgin Media has launched an internet TV service that streams programmes to computers and smartphones.

The TV Anywhere service is available to UK customers but they will need to rent a Tivo set-top box from the company and upgrade if on a basic package.

It signals a challenge to BSkyB’s rapidly growing Sky Go service.

It may also deter users from cancelling subscriptions to make use of cheaper catch-up TV alternatives and media libraries such as Lovefilm and Netflix.

At launch, streaming shows via Virgin TV Anywhere will only be possible with a wi-fi or broadband connection.

Virgin said it had not paid for the separate rights necessary to offer it over 3G or 4G phone networks – although other functions such as setting a Tivo recording from a remote location would be possible via cellular connections.

By contrast Sky Go does stream media over 3G and 4G.
