We were recently invited to Virgin Media’s Head Office in London to view their brand new TV Anywhere app, we were incredibly impressed and wrote more about it here. We knew that this new app would be launched soon and we’re really delighted to announce that it is now available to download. This app is free to download and is available for both iPhone and iPad. You will need a TiVo box and of course, be a Virgin Media customer.

If you’ve got Virgin Media: TiVo Service on your television then you’ll really want to download this free app. It will allow you to watch live TV, wherever you connect to WiFi, on your iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone. You can also browse the TV guide to see what’s on up to 14 days in the future, and browse shows from up to 7 days ago. You can set recordings for TV shows, movies and series links, all from within the app – even while someone else is watching the television. You can find out more about a particular character/actor from a show you are interested in, find just shows staring that character and even watch the television on your device too.

Give it a try, we think you’ll like it.

    Downloaded when I saw this last night. Hooked it up to one of my Tivo boxes this evening.

    Bit disappointed to see the list of streaming channels available to view on the iPad is a tiny proportion of those available. Doesn’t even include BBC1, unless this list gets added to.

    Not sure how useful it is to control the Tivo from the iPad, given that on most occasions you’d need to be in the same room and could just use the remote.

    Early days yet though, so looking forward to seeing exactly what’s what with it.

    I have a TiVo box and an iPad. Whilst its easy to install the iPad app and set up on the home network mode it does not give me the option to watch exclusively on the iPad. In the Home mode I only have the option to watch on TV so in effect my iPad becomes a remote control. So if my wife is watching something on TV I cannot watch something else on my iPad as it controls the TV and changes the channel. Very frustration. I have read all of the Virgin help videos and none of them tell you how to watch exclusively on the iPad.
