Netflix has launched on Virgin Media with the cable operator offering six month of the on-demand service free to subscribers who sign up to Virgin Media’s Premiere or VIP Collections
The Netflix app now available in over 1.8 million Virgin Media TiVo homes and brings to the platform Netflix’s original series such as House of Cards, Hemlock Grove, Arrested Development and Orange is the New Black, as well as Netflix exclusives like the hit series Breaking Bad.
As well as the free six month subscription for its Virgin Media’s Premiere or VIP Collections members, Virgin Media TiVo customers on other packages will be able to make the most of the one-month free trial offered to all new Netflix members.
Existing Netflix members can use their current log-in on Virgin Media TiVo for access to their favourite shows on the main TV screen without having to switch between TV inputs or remote controls.

Whether it’s part of a subscription or pay-per-view, Virgin Media TiVo will help you find everything from the classic gem you’ve always wanted to watch to this summer’s biggest hits, all seamlessly integrated for simple, easy viewing.
“People love watching with Virgin Media TiVo and we continue to lead the way as the fastest growing pay TV service in the country. In two years, 1.8 million homes have signed up to Virgin Media TiVo and what we believe is the best way to watch television.”
