Virgin Media’s new Connected TV Service
Virgin Media have announced some details about a new TV service they are bringing to the UK later this year, their new ‘Connected TV Service’ will allow users to store up to 500 Hours of content, in normal, high def and even 3d formats. As well as being able to store the content users will have access to Virgin Media’s on demand service via this new service.
Current on demand services need access to the internet (via ethernet) however due to Virgin Media’s position they are able to bypass this stage and hook directly into the cable network with an inbuild modem. This would allow users to be able to use the service without worrying about other members of a house using up all the internet connectivity.
More details of the product will be announced soon, expect it to be a cabled area only service.
