We watch YouTube music via their app on our TV, we can access anything we want, no need for a subscription.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

I upgraded my Google sub for the extra £2, I really enjoyed Cobra Kai and a couple of the other things on Premium look interesting. Although it is one very confusing mess, if you are a Google Play Music subscriber after you upgrade you are expected to cancel your Music sub otherwise you get charged twice. WTF! This is Google who manage to run you life from their phone OS but can't manage a subscription upgrade?

It is very nice being able to download Youtube content for the tube ride home, no adds (I watch a lot of youtube on my TV so this is a nice bonus) and all their originals are in 4K. Although a bit disappointed that even though PIP is a Android 8 feature Youtube puts this behind a paywall and the option doesn't exist on their TV OS at all.

Very good to see this.

If they could just secure Amazon Prime Video, as BT have done, Virgin Media would be in a really strong position.

Did you get any sort of free trial ? Or was it a case of you couldn't have one because you already had Google Play music.

Yes, that's exactly my thinking. I hope VM don't take another decade thinking about it. I was hopeful that Amazon would come to Virgin this year, but we've heard nothing further about this and we are already half way through the year.

Dream on, in my reasonably short time with Virgin I have realised that nothing happens quickly.

Well, talks with Amazon started years ago! They might now be getting somewhere, but I am still waiting for news to crawl out of the woodwork. We may, however, have very little notice, because until the deal is done, confidentiality will be maintained.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

If you are thinking of watching the Amazon Prime football content on a Roku box, you may need to think again. You can't get the current Queens Club tennis on the Prime Video Roku app and it is highly unlikely you'd get the football either.
Assuming that Virgin don't get their finger out and do a deal in the next couple of months, looks like a Fire TV stick plus a cheap Now TV box is on the shopping list before the US Open in August which is now an Amazon 'exclusive'. Pity because Roku had potential as a 'one stop' shop (or plug) for OTT content which Virgin can't or won't get.
