Virgin Media offers BBC iPlayer on TV

Digital set-top boxes

Virgin Media customers using BBC iPlayer on the box will be able to watch full screen pictures of the last seven days’ TV at ‘full quality’ without the need for downloading. Initially it is through a red button on the screen, with EPG access to be added this summer.

Malcolm Wall, CEO of Content at Virgin Media, said: “The enormous success of iPlayer online has demonstrated the desire TV viewers have for viewing quality programmes at a time that suits them, and now it’s available from the comfort of the living room. Virgin Media is proud to be working with the BBC to continue to lead this revolution in TV viewing.”
