Generally pretty good
I have had this app from the beginning and I generally find it to be pretty good. Especially when we go away and stay in hotels.
So watching Bodyguard in Krakow was pretty cool.
We have the full sports package too but have found this much less reliable. It just seems to me that if Sky decide that Virgin customers shouldn’t be able to watch something, say the cricket for instance, then that is it and you get the death statement unable to stream at the present time!!. Virgin claim it’s not their fault and Sky disclaim all responsibility. Never gets resolved and I do feel a bit cheated that I have paid to watch sport on demand and on quite a few occasions it is just unavailable. Virgin you need to get your finger out here I feel as not everyone is as generous as me I think.
Very good, only 2 devices though
So I use this to stream football when I’m abroad, very good quality, easy to use UI overall an excellent app, however only 4 stars as you can only have the account registered to watch anything on 2 devices(not including Set Top Box), I’m not sure if that’s just the contract that I pay for or what but it’s a little disappointing however that’s just a penalty of 1 star, would recomend especially if you want to watch football abroad, be aware that you must have an account with a virgin subscription to watch anything.
Developer Response ,
Hi. Glad that you're enjoying the app. You are correct that you can register 2 devices to watch on and make 1 change per month.
Was advised “problems with streaming “. and Virgin promised to get back to me. Waited and waited, then I rang back only to,be told it possibly would be sorted by 2am. Still nothing.
I’m house bound and rely on Virgin to keep me entertained. My bill this month was £98. Sorry, but I can’t afford to keep paying this sort of money for lack of service. It’s just not fair.
I look at offers made to new customers and they don’t have to pay anything near £98. Should I go to Sky? Or should Virgin apologise and fix the problems,?
Phoned several times but call centre (in India?) said the person who could sort it was on their lunch break but would get back to: me. I’m still waiting. I’m sure it’s a simple tweak as I can get other services but just not TV Control.
