Virgin Media UK Add 11 New FAST Channels to TV Service for Free

Customers of broadband ISP Virgin Media (VMO2), specifically those who take Pay TV services via one of the network operator’s TV 360, STREAM or v6 box platforms, may like to know that the company has added a selection of 11 new FAST channels to its TV service “at no extra cost“.

The new FAST channels include History Hunters (A+E Networks), Deal Masters (A+E Networks), Qello Concerts (Stingray), Trace Sports Stars (Trace), Real Crime (Little Dot Studios), Real Life (Little Dot Studios), ZenLIFE (Stingray), UKTV Play Laughs (UKTV), UKTV Play Heroes (UKTV), UKTV Play Full Throttle (UKTV) and UKTV Play Uncovered (UKTV).

NOTE: Free Ad-Supported Streaming Television (FAST) channels are special dedicated channels that tend to only offer content and schedules based on either a single TV show or theme.

The new channels join the existing 19 FAST channels which include three from Pluto TV that launched in March – Catfish, CSI: New York and 5Cops.

David Bouchier, Chief TV and Entertainment Officer at VMO2, said:

“The introduction of these fantastic new streaming channels demonstrates our ambition to continue enhancing our entertainment offering, giving our customers even more choice and 24/7 access to their favourite shows.

Having launched 30 streaming channels in the last year alone, we are constantly striving to offer our customers even more entertainment, providing them with easy access to shows we know they’ll love, at no extra cost.”

The new additions to Virgin Media’s TV line up can be found on the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) and come as part of the company’s expanding FAST channel offering, providing an alternative and complimentary experience to traditional linear TV.
