Virgin Media's TV Anywhere streaming app comes to Kindle Fire tablets

Matt Brian, @m4tt

After bringing its TV Anywhere app to Android at the end of last year, Virgin Media has continually updated the list of supported smartphones and tablets. Today, it's adding another range of Android devices to this roster, namely Amazon's Kindle Fire tablets, as the TV Anywhere app has now dropped the Amazon Appstore. It'll let you watch live TV over a WiFi connection (3G/4G streaming is not currently supported), manage your set-top box recordings, browse TV listings and also serve as a remote control. Virgin claims it's the first service of its kind to come to Amazon's marketplace (at least in the UK), with neither Sky nor YouView officially offering a separate Kindle Fire app. After a relatively quiet period, Virgin Media has begun to think about mobile streaming again. Last week, it brought Sky's entertainment channels to TV Anywhere, and next month customers will be able to use their Virgin account to access Sky's Sports and Movies apps.
