Virgin TV customers can now enjoy on demand entertainment from all 10 of the award-winning broadcaster’s channels for the first time.
Programmes can now be viewed from across UKTV’s channel line-up, including Dave, Watch, Alibi, Gold, Drama, Eden, Good Food, Home, Really and Yesterday. From early December, the content will move under UKTV’s new digital brand, UKTV Play.
Stephane David, Executive Director of Content at Virgin Media says, “Around a fifth of all the TV our customers watch is at a time that suits them. People want control and choice over what to watch and when and we are giving them that. We have led the development of on demand TV in the UK and now, with the addition of hundreds of great UKTV programmes, offer more entertainment than ever before.”
Dan Fahy, Director, Commercial & Business Development, UKTV, adds, “UKTV is committed to making its content as easily accessible as possible for viewers and the addition of the network’s full portfolio of channels to Virgin TV’s on demand service marks the next step on this journey. From next month, viewers can access UKTV Play via their red button, enabling viewers to catch up on programmes from across all 10 of our channels or access box sets of UKTV’s award-winning shows, in just one click.”
