This only applies if you own a property in U.K and pay for a V.M package.

Since April you get your full u.k package anywhere u are via wifi for free.

Provided you have a good internet connection in your other house i.e Spain

Just connect your device i.e laptop to your t.v and connect with V.M app.

U are ready to go all for free .your entire uk bundle will be accessible wherever

You are in Europe.

Best of luck. Herby

  Can you verify with a link to Virgin media confirming this as up to now you needed to join a VPN which is technically unlawful 

With Sky Go due to recent EU changes now allows you to use it abroad for about 35 days provided you have used Sky Go within the last 35 days in U.K. 

Early this month I tried this in Spain and did have access to Sky Go but then the channels of Sky Go are limited and manly Sky channels but this is a step in the right direction 

If you can lawfully get Virgin Anywhere in Spain for example without a VPN and it has all the channels then It would be a bonus to many

I currently use a 1.9 m dish which in Almeria gives you good reception

Thank u 4 the interest in this is called content portability and it started on 1st of April,

No not an April fools is perfectly a paneuropeen communications agreement.

If u download the V.M go app it has all the details on even includes on demand bundle

I contacted V.M they tell me that it is all correct ,legal and genuine,all u need is a very good

Internet connection with a minimum of 8 to 10 mbps to avoid lagging,if u have fibre u should

Be ok as speeds are usually higher.u should also be able to watch all your V.M package on your

Smartphone or laptop anywhere in europe,remember it is all dependent on the quality of your

Wifi or b/band .for your info V.M have a forum on the the way I only have the info

For V.M and not B.T or S.K.Y but it should be the same using their own apps also u can google

V.M on this by typing ,virgin media in europe there are now umpteen questions and answers.

Good the way as someone said in an earlier post satellite dishes are really confined

To history now.since new technology has taken over.

Good to know also that VPNs are "unlawful" in Gloucestershire & Huercal.

Oh, and a handful of other places, such as Belarus & UAE wink​​​​​​​

Thanks for that information and on further google search it seems that VM abroad is very similar to Sky which means you can only watch the VM channels and not BBC or ITV as you are directed to BBC player which you cannot access outside UK at present -you can get Sky sports on VM so presumably you can also get in abroad

BBC and ITV are apparently not subject to the new regulations 

you sound as though you are using VM in Spain so is this correct
