How To Get The Most From Your Virgin TV Box

Virgin Media TV Box

Did you know your Virgin TV box is designed for much more than just watching TV? There’s a host of exclusive features on your box that can transform the way you watch, and it’s easy to know where to find them once you’re looking. So, if  you fancy a little more from your viewing experience, why not follow the tips in the explainer below – we can guarantee there’s a feature to suit everybody on the Virgin TV box!


On Demand


Once upon a time we had to plan our evenings around the big television and film titles we wanted to catch, and there was always the chance we’d miss out on an episode and have to wait for it to be shown again. What a relief that we can build our own TV schedules now! With Virgin TV On Demand you have the power to watch what you want, when you want. It’s not just television too – there’s movies and music on demand at the push of a button.


Catch Up


You might have seen the Catch Up symbol beside some of your favourite shows, but you’re not too sure what it means. With Catch Up there’s no reason to miss an epic TV moment ever again. Any show that’s carrying the Catch Up symbol can be viewed in full as many times as you like, so there’s no reason to miss out on that crucial episode and scramble for the re-runs ever again. 


Virgin Movies & Box Sets


Virgin Movies gives our customers the chance to catch the latest blockbusters on demand. With hundreds of films to choose from, many in high definition, and some even at the same time as the theatre, you can transport the cinema to your front room! You can also watch every episode of your favourite show at your leisure with Box Sets. If you’re a TV XL customer, you’ll also have access to exclusive shows like Ash vs The Evil Dead or Kingdom here. 


Apps & Games


In the Apps & Games menu on your Home screen you’ll find all the apps you’ll ever need – from Youtube and Netflix to Vevo, you have all the power of your laptop projected onto your television screen! Now there’s no way you’ll miss out on the best music videos, Netflix dramas or viral vlogging.
