Virgin Media has announced the latest additions to its TV platform, Nick HD, MTV HD, MTV Music and BET.
Subscribers to Virgin Media’s pay TV packages can now access the likes of Geordie Shore and The Valleys in glorious HD on MTV HD and parents can keep their little ones entertained with Spongebob Squarepants on Nick HD.
BET offers Real Husbands of Hollywood (below) and The Wendy Williams Show while MTV Music promises music videos, live performances and interviews. Does anyone remember when the original MTV did this?
