Anyone know when the Stv Player is supposed to launch as an ap on the V6 ? Amazon prime video would be fantastic for 2019 ��

I think Scottish viewers may well get the STV Player, but as to whether it will be available outside Scotland, that is more doubtful.

You are right about Amazon in that there is no firm news yet. However, given that it appears to have been Liberty Global that put an end to Virgin's early attempts to put Amazon on the platform, their recent decision to embrace OTT viewing and Amazon's arrival on BT, it is only a matter of time now. I'm sure that VM would not want to be beaten by Sky on this one!

Hope Amazon is coming and not something like the sky Atlantic hype. 😂 Just got an email from VM about Stv player being on V6 in apps that was supposed to be last month.

It seems to me that we might well get both, KC.

I doubt that will happen next year now. I would be surprised if this came about before the V6s were replaced by the next set top box. I have not read anything in recent times to suggest the Horizon boxes were coming to Virgin Media, although Liberty Global distribute Horizon throughout their markets on the Continent.

The STV Player was wrongly announced as available now in this week’s Virgin TV Edit email. On checking, I was advised it’s not quite ready.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2018)

Does anyone know why Crime + Investigation is still available to watch on Virgin TV Go for Mix customers despite not being included in the Mix package on TV.

VM said back in March that they will use Horizon at some point, but have given no dates:

In September, Liberty said they are rolling out their latest UI refresh, Horizon 4, to their continental equivalents of the V6 boxes, but no mention of a UK rollout:

Ah
I hope you get all your new year wishes. Atlantic and Prime are alright. The idea of them is better than the reality.
