You can get Paramout+ on Virgin TV boxes through the Prime Video app.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Surprised the International app isn't even on LG TV's - you would have to use Prime Video or Apple TV app on LG TV's to access Paramount+ as a 'channel'

Unfortunately, that doesn’t allow you to bookmark any content on the box, so it’s no better than you get on a smart TV.

Still waiting for Disney +, let alone Apple +, Discovery +, Acorn, etc. What is the big problem? Virgin need to do better than this if it’s not to lag even further behind Sky.

You can't even bookmark content from streaming services as you describe on Sky Q.

That's a pretty poor solution, as it's only suitable for Prime subscribers. It's of no use to anyone that just wants Paramount+.

For someone who proclaims the app world is the way to go it does baffle me why you still have Virgin TV.

I do get that, but until the standalone app appears, it's at least possible for those that do - although until they sort out the UHD support for the UK I won't be getting it via any route.

I still have it mainly for my wife, who has an aversion to accessing streamers by herself. She can access programmes from Amazon and StarzPlay because I can bookmark these programmes through the 360 box that I have.

I think we are now at a stage where all the content I personally would want to access is now on the streamers. But I really would like to have a box with all the streamers that allowed you to compile one central watchlist for all of them. My wife could certainly cope with that.

Nothing on the market at the moment, sadly, but the day will come eventually.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

This article, if correct, suggests that the 'new' channel E4 Extra will be on Virgin Media 337, in the music section...

https://rxtvinfo.com/2022/first-look...ras-launch-day

It's actually a rebrand of the current 4Music, with a new version of 4Music launching on Virgin Media 336, which is itself a rebrand of Box Hits.

Come on VM, use some common sense and put E4 Extra in the Entertainment section like it will be on Sky.

Yes it's actually a rebrand of 4 Music , the listings confirm this.

RXTV did report yesterday (On that link you posted) that Virgin are keeping E4 Xtra in the Music section down to E4 Xtra broadcast Music from 7am to 9am.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Confusingly, RX:TV is now saying that CBS Reality won't drop CBS from it's name...

https://rxtvinfo.com/2022/cbs-channe...mp-end-of-june

It says that the lineup will now be:

Legend
Horror Xtra
CBS Reality
Reality Xtra

Unless that's not actually correct, it's a complete mess!
