TV GO via browser - requirements question

I've had a look via the Virgin Media Help pages and I haven't found the answer.

Could someone please tell me or point me to the current Virgin Media Go technical requirements if you wish to use it via a web browser.

I see there is a Windows 10 app, but I'm interested in using it on non-Win10 equipment.

Many thanks in advance.

Re: TV GO via browser - requirements question

Just checked my bookmarks and here is a link that still works.
TV Go.
Currently watching Sky One as a check that it still works.


BBC insist that you use their iPlayer instead. Other channels might do likewise.

I had an idea/memory recollection and put Silverlight into my web search and I found tech specs for supported computers last updated in 2018.

https://www.virginmedia.com/help/vir...ices-can-i-use

Wonder how much things have changed since this was updated. Are there less problems now with Mac? Does Linux work?

If Chrome and Firefox don't need Silverlight on non-Windows 10 systems I assume they use HTML5 for video, and maybe whatever OS have current versions of those browsers, are compatible?

I use FF ( V74 64bit) and TV GO runs fine. Laptop with an i3 processor. No extra components needed.
