Virgin Media has today uploaded its official TV Anywhere Android application to the Google Play Store, so Virgin Media TiVo subscribers in the U.K. will now be able to watch live television or recorded programs on their Android devices, anytime, anyplace, anywhere! In order to download and install the application, you need to have a non-rooted phone or tablet running Android 2.3 through to Android 4.3. Strangely, there is no support for 4.4 KitKat at this time.

LG may not think the Galaxy Round is a real curved glass smartphone, but Samsung certainly does. In fact, its first Galaxy Round TV ad is all about things with curves… such as a baby’s hand, an avocado, an egg, a glass, and a hip flask.
It’s quite possibly the strangest smartphone ad you’ll see this week.
Samsung has today posted an official TV commercial featuring the new Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear. The 30-second clip highlights the handset’s new faux leather backing, how its S Pen stylus can be used to “take action instantly,” and a number of TouchWiz features like AirCommand and Multi Window.
There’s also a brief glimpse at the Galaxy Note 3’s official Smart View case.
For telly addicts in the U.K., the free TVCatchup app for Android and iOS makes it easy for them to watch live TV channels while they’re on the go. But thanks to an ongoing legal dispute with a number of public service broadcasters, the app’s developers have been forced to pull popular feeds, including ITV and Channel 4.
The first reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Gear rolled in last week, and just as we suspected, they weren’t all that positive. While almost all had good things to say about the device, they also agreed that it was rushed and unfinished, lacking key features, and in need of improvement in a number of areas — most importantly in notifications and battery life.
But while the device itself may not be all that impressive, its first TV commercial is.
The Hulu Plus apps for Android and iOS have today been updated with support for Google Chromecast. You’ll find a new ‘Cast’ button within the app that will stream your favorite shows to your television with the help of the $35 dongle.
No, there isn’t an error in that headline — Samsung really is producing Galaxy S II variants still. But the Galaxy S II TV, which has been unveiled in Brazil today, shares little resemblance with its siblings. It’s smaller, it’s slower, and its camera isn’t as good, but it does have dual-SIM support and a telescopic antenna that picks up local television channels.
Rakuten has finally launched the beta for its Wuaki.tv app on Google Play, bringing its users the ability to navigate through an endless library of TV Shows and Movies which can be streamed to your Android smartphone, tablet, and computer.
Within minutes of unveiling its intriguing new Chromecast dongle, it looks like the Google Play store is already running out of supply of the cross-platform video streamer.
The new $35 device went on sale during Google’s San Francisco press event this morning with an original shipping estimate of one to two days, but now the ship date has been pushed back as far as August 7 for some shoppers.
Just about every major tech company is working on two untapped product categories right now: wearable technology and streaming television over the internet. Apple is trying to draw in TV networks with advertising incentives, and even Intel is working on its own TV service.
It should come as no surprise that Google has been in talks with media companies about streaming premium TV over the internet. The company has reportedly demoed its new product to cable executives, but it’s still up to the networks to jump on board.
