I have this app on my iPad and the kindle fire version does not disappoint. The picture quality is really good and lots of options available. A must for Virgin Media subscribers

It works really well but only selected channels. To watch them all you need to connect your tv to the internet and we've not done that yet. But for the channels you can see its excellent. You can also set your TiVo to record from the app. Once we're fully connected it will be superb and would deserve 5 stars.

What a waste of time more than half cannot be obtained on a Kindle glad it's free otherwise I would be really upset even had a TiVo box installed because an engineer told me this was what I needed ha ha what a joke I am told the problem could be my tv is to far away from my broadband if I move it nearer it's then to far away from my computer can't win.

It's not that I hate the app, I use it on my laptop and iPhone, but the fact that it is totally out of date and incompatible with my device, a brand new Fire HD7. It just will not download to my new kindle and obviously if you follow the Amazon trail on how to update your apps, you first have to download the app - SO where to now Amazon ???? You sell this out of date app so update it before you sell it. Virgin recommended that I download Google Play Store who stock the latest version but I don't want to mess with another app store, why should I when I have Amazon app store.

Positively useless for kindle as it doesn't have Adobe flash player on it's platform and also for my android phone as I don't have TiVo...gave up trying on my pc...seems I don't exist as only use virgin media for tv, broadband and phone are with another supplier and probably the tv package xl will go the same way..another increase in Feb, so will be looking at altrnatives

Error message problem streaming this channel appears mid screen even though there is no apparent problem. The only problem is the message on screen blocking the view. This happened today on both my android and kindle devices
