The Android version of Virgin Media?s TV Anywhere app has actually been available since November but there have been rollout setbacks due to limited device support. Earlier this year, the company opened the app to Nexus 5 owners and, now, it?s finally made the streaming service available to most mid to high end Android smartphones and tablets in the market.
A few key features of the app include:
- Being able to watch live TV even when on the move via Wi-Fi
- Browse the TV guide to see what will be showing up to 14 days in advance as well as shows of up to 7 days ago
- Be able to set recordings and series links for TV shows and movies
- Browse and delete your recordings in case you need to make space on your TiVo
- Share what you?re watching and planning to watch on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter
For owners of phones like the Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2, or the HTC One (M8), they?ll be able to stream over 90 channels and be able to remotely control their TiVo box while on the move. The downside though is that while the app can be downloaded by any of the new Android devices, the company has stated that they?re not officially supported. This means that the company expects the app to work with these devices, but they weren?t able to test all new devices simply due to the sheer number of new Android devices being put out. The list keeps on getting updated regularly. The list below is what we have as of this writing.
The full list of new devices: Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Samsung Galaxy Note PRO 12.2, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2, Sony Xperia Z2, Sony Xperia Z2 tablet, Sony Xperia M2, Sony Xperia M, HTC One (M8), HTC One Mini, HTC One Sensation, HTC One Max, HTC Desire HD, Motorola Moto X, Motorola RAZR I, Motorola Xoom 2, Motorola Xoo ME, Lenovo Ideatab A1000, Lenovo Ideatab S6000, Barnes and Noble Nook HD, Barnes and Noble Nook HD+, Huawei Ascend Y300, LG G2, LG GPad 8.3.
