Work Detail Virgin Media has launched a new product range combining ultrafast broadband and easy access to lots of TV shows.

Among the new packages is the Player Bundle, which offers fibre broadband with speeds of up to 50Mbps and unlimited downloads.

The bundle also includes Player TV, with essential free to air channels and services including BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, CBeebies Picks, CBBC Picks, Tiddlers TV, All4, YouTube and Vevo.

Subscribers will also receive a 500GB TiVo box and be able to pause, rewind and record TV, as well as enjoy inclusive unlimited weekend calls to UK landlines and Virgin Mobile numbers, and weekend calls to 0870 numbers.

Another package on offer is the Full House Bundle, which provides fibre broadband speeds of up to 200Mbps and unlimited downloads, along with the UK's fastest widely available Wi-Fi.

The deal also includes Full House TV, giving subscribers access to all the BT Sport channels in HD, Nat Geo Wild in HD and the Disney Channels, as well as a wide selection of players and catch-up services and Virgin TV Box Sets of shows such as Doctor Who and Sherlock.

Gregor McNeil, Managing Director of Consumer at Virgin Media, commented: "We are bringing people closer to the programmes they love, while also giving them the very best and fastest broadband at incredible value.

"From on-demand entertainment and catch-up in Player to HD Premier League games and exclusive series in Full House, there’s something for everyone at Virgin Media."

The announcement comes just after the launch of a broadband add-on designed for online gamers.

Billed as the first broadband tier of its kind, VIVID 200 Gamer is an add-on to Virgin Media's current top broadband package launched this week.
