Sky have Sky Go, now Virgin Media release "TV Anywhere". But both seem to have no urgency for their Android Solutions. Sky Go has a paltry supported device list and doesn't even run on Jellybean. Virgin Media have released this today, but only on Browser, iPad, iPhone and iPod.
"Virgin Media today launched Virgin TV Anywhere, a new ‘cloud-based’ entertainment service exclusively for Virgin TV customers giving them the flexibility to enjoy their favourite TV content on computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones. Putting customers in control of their TV viewing and planning, Virgin TV Anywhere takes advantage of Virgin Media’s cutting edge home entertainment services, calling on its expertise in television, broadband and mobile to deliver a compelling new TV service that can to be enjoyed anywhere in the UK1, even beneath the capital’s streets using Virgin Media’s public Wi-Fi on London Underground."
"Launching initially on iPad, iPhone and iPod and available to download from the App store. Android support to follow in 2013. Up to two devices (including laptops or computers) can be registered at any one time. Customers can change registered devices on a monthly basis."
It sounds like a great service for Virgin Media customers, but once again, Android users get screwed over in favour of our iOS counterparts. :(
Feel free to vent below! ;)
