Two new Sky HD channels arrive on Virgin Media TiVo

Virgin Media has ushered in the New Year by adding two more Sky HD channels to its TiVo service. TV customers with the XL package will now be able to access Sky News HD and Sky Sports News HQ HD at no extra cost.

The arrival of a high-definition Sky Sports News channel completes an impressive line-up of sporting content on the Virgin platform with customers now able to watch all Sky Sports programmes in HD. Sky Sports News HQ HD will be available on channel 511 while Sky News HD will be on channel 603.

Virgin Media Executive Director of Content, Stephane David said: "The addition of these channels to our line-up ensures our customers can enjoy even more breaking news, gripping sports stories and insightful features in the stunning clarity of HD."

"This launch also means our customers can watch an unrivalled range of sports TV in HD, including every Sky Sports channel, BT Sport and ESPN."

Virgin Media now has an extensive line-up of documentaries, music, entertainment, lifestyle and sports programmes on its popular TiVo platform. Plus all of Sky's offerings on the service are now viewable in HD following the arrival of the two new channels.

Virgin Media recently added four new channels, 4Seven, Channel 4+1, More4+1 and UMP Movies. It also revamped the Netflix app last month.

It also launched its first 'Quad-play' bundles last year, which combine TV, broadband, home and phone services for customers across the UK. The provider currently delivers broadband speeds up to 152Mb via fibre optic connections.
