Virgin Media TV gets more on-demand box sets

Virgin Media has signed a new deal with Viacom - the folks behind Channel 5 and a bunch of other channels - that will bring loads more on-demand TV box sets to its telly service.

It means that Virgin Media TV users will now be able to watch more on-demand TV from some favourite channels, including Comedy Central, MTV, and Nickelodeon for the kids. They'll be available on the Virgin TV Anywhere app for customers to watch from just about anywhere.

New box sets arriving on the service will include the likes of Geordie Shore, Inside Amy Schumer, SpongeBob SquarePants, Channel 5's Milkshake, and plenty more.

It'll also give users access to some new streaming apps: MTV Play, Nickelodeon Play, Nick Jr Play, and Comedy Central Play. That means Virgin Media customers will be the first folks in the UK who get to use them.

Some new channels will be available on Virgin Media TV too - including entertainment channel Spike, so you can get your fix of mixed martial arts, Lip Sync Battle, and Battlebots.

Chief digital entertainment officer David Bouchier said: "This agreement with Viacom means our customers will not just continue to have access to some of the very best TV... We continue to give our customers the very best TV to watch when and how they want and it's fantastic to work with partners who really understand this."

Look out for the new content on your box over the next couple of months.
