Cable broadband and TV provider Virgin Media UK

has revealed plans to launch a new Entertainment Service, which will apparently bring lots of different streaming services together into one place. Oddly, the trial for this is currently only open to those with a broadband-only service (no TV or phone) on their network and a HUB 3 or 4 router.

The Entertainment Service Trial was announced via their website on Monday (here), although the description is so vague that it ends up sounding like pretty much every other video streaming device or internet-connected TV platform (these typically let you install streaming apps from lots of different content providers, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, NOW (Sky), iPlayer etc.).

There’s so many awesome streaming services out there, we decided to bring them all together into one place and put you in charge with our new entertainment service … It won’t cost you any extra to get our new entertainment set up in your home, and the service will be totally free throughout the trial. Our system will automatically put an activation charge on your bill but we’ll refund you with a bill credit,” said the operator

Virgin said they don’t yet have a confirmed date for the trial itself to start. We have asked the operator for more details, but they declined to add anything, and so we are continuing to dig. Naturally, we’ll update this article once we know more.
