Thursday, July 22nd 2010 by Cable.co.uk

Bundle provider Virgin Media is preparing to offer its subscribers a new service which allows them to watch digital TV content on the move, according to reports.

Digital TV provider Virgin Media is planning to launch a new service which will allow its subscribers to catch their favourite programmes on the move, it has emerged.

BroadcastNow reports that the company, which also offers fibre optic cable broadband and home phone services, is in talks with video on-demand provider Seachange over the launch of a new 'pause and resume' service.

According to the news provider, the system would send an SMS to a viewer's mobile or an email to their PC which would allow people to log in and continue viewing content they have been watching on their set-top boxes.

Simon McGrath, chief marketing officer of Seachange, said Virgin Media is keen to consider how it can use "next-generation technology".

Virgin Media recently confirmed that it is adding Sky Sports HD1 and HD2 to its digital TV service from August 2nd.

The company has stated that the channels will show sports including Premier League football, cricket and rugby union in "crystal-clear" high definition.
