Virgin Media, the largest cable operator in the U.K., has extended its authenticated multiscreen app to Amazon Kindle Fire tablets, including the Kindle Fire second generation and Kindle Fire HD 8.9, HDX 7 and HDX 8.9.
The app, called Virgin TV Anywhere, delivers up to 75 channels of live TV and more than 2,500 hours of video-on-demand, while also doubling as a fancy remote that controls the MSO’s TiVo-powered set-tops and lets customers remotely manage their DVRs.
“We’re delighted that TV Anywhere is the first service of its kind available to Kindle Fire users. With more live channels available than anywhere else we want Virgin Media homes to have the best digital entertainment services out there,” Scott Kewley, Virgin Media’s digital entertainment product director, said in a statement
Virgin Media, now part of Liberty Global, has also offers access to the app on Web browsers and iOS- and Android-powered smartphones and tablets.
The Virgin TV Anywhere app is free to all Virgin Media TiVo customers.
