Virgin Mobile Canada announced it has turned on Virgin TV, billed as "a completely new way for Virgin Internet members in Ontario and Québec to get the hottest live and on-demand TV shows and live sports on any screen [they] want."
Virgin TV is an app-based service that doesn't require a traditional TV set-top box or installation, and works on all popular devices, including iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, laptops, the Amazon Fire TV Stick, Android TV, Apple TV and Google Chromecast.
Available at the App Store and Google Play, the Virgin TV app lets customers watch 2 streams at once, pause and rewind live TV, resume on-demand programs where left off, and track all top trending shows.
"We're super excited to offer members a new way to get all their favorite TV anywhere, anytime and at a great price, all with our easy to use Virgin TV app," said Jennifer Posnikoff, Virgin's director of marketing. "With access to the top TV shows, the return of live major league sports, special events and all kinds of on-demand content, Virgin TV lets you watch like a boss at home or on the go."
Virgin TV is a subscription-based service available exclusively to Virgin Internet Members with 15 Mbps or higher Unlimited Virgin Internet plans. No long-term contract is required, and current Virgin Internet Members can add Virgin TV starting from $35. Virgin Internet + TV is available starting at $85.
