Virgin Media customers will also soon have access to all their Sky Sports channels on the go, for the first time, through a dedicated app. This will be initially available for iOS mobile and tablet devices, as well as online, with an Android version coming later.

Dana Strong, Chief Operating Officer at Virgin Media, said; “Virgin Media is now the home of all the major live sports in the UK in HD or on the go.  This is the first time all the Sky and BT Sport channels will be available in one place, backed by superfast broadband, for a single great value price. It doesn’t matter if you are watching at home or on the go, you now have front row access to all the top sporting action with Virgin Media.”
