The digital TV service offered by Virgin Media, formerly known as UPC, is very popular with Irish customers.
Virgin Media TV is one of the most comprehensive TV services in Ireland, offering consumers up to 110 digital TV channels and up to 25 HD channels (with Virgin Media Horizon TV packages), and there’s a package and price point to suit most consumers.
This extensive offering features everything from sport to movies, kids’ programming to the biggest TV shows from around the world.
On demand services give customers even more TV choice, with hundreds of hours of movies, box sets, and kids’ TV at the touch of a button.
What does Virgin Media TV offer?
The Virgin Media On Demand service gives viewers access to a range of home entertainment programmes, including box sets from the UK and US and plenty of kids’ TV to keep the littles ones entertained.
There’s also Horizon TV which transforms your mobile device or laptop into a TV, allowing for multi room viewing with no fuss.
With My Prime, Horizon TV customers can watch what they want, when they want, and how they want, whether that means on their favourite appliance either in or out of the home. My Prime is included at no extra cost with Horizon TV and features:
- Complete box sets of top TV series
- Award winning Irish and international movies
- Kids' channels and the latest shows
Travel back in time with Replay TV and watch all your favourite programmes that you missed on a wide variety of TV channels that have been broadcast in the last 7 days, including programmes that have just started!
How can I get Virgin Media TV?
As Virgin Media TV is delivered via broadband, you’ll need a fibre optic broadband connection into your home. This is because features like Horizon TV, Virgin Media HD and Virgin Media Remote Record need a strong internet connection to function properly.
Existing Virgin Media customers may have fibre optic broadband already, making it even easier to set up Virgin Media TV. If not, check whether fibre optic broadband is available in your area.
