Virgin Media was one of the first pay-TV operators to incorporate direct-access to Netflix. Now the British telecom is going old-school – joining FindAnyFilm.com, the industry website designed to assist consumers in purchasing and watching movies and TV shows in the United Kingdom.
Launched in 2009 by the U.K. Film Council, FindAnyFilm.com provides access to more than 130,000 titles, enabling users to search for any film or TV show and discover results across all formats, from cinema listings to DVD and Blu-ray Disc, digital download and streaming services.
Virgin Media Store enables subscribers to browse and buy content and then watch it straight away on a TV or mobile device through the Virgin TV V6 and TiVo boxes or through the Virgin Media Store app.
“We’re excited to have joined FindAnyFilm.com so their users can discover the amazing range of content available from Virgin Media Store,” David Bouchier, chief digital entertainment officer at Virgin Media, said in a statement.
Liz Bales, CEO of the British Association for Screen Entertainment, welcomed the addition of Virgin Media to the FindAnyFilm website, adding the telecom joins recent members Which.co.uk and Gigwise.
“All of these additions are part of our wider strategy to address the ongoing challenge of film and TV copyright infringement by delivering the widest range of entertainment to the broadest audience possible, ensuring they’re enjoying content safe in the knowledge that they are accessing the content they love via the most reliable and legitimate sources and methods,” said Bales.
