Virgin Media TV Opens Premium Kids Bundle To Everyone

Virgin Media O2 is set to spice up the autumn television roster for its young customers this month, with free access to all of Virgin Media TV’s Kids’ channels at no extra cost.

The offer, which you can get regardless of the subscription tier you’re on, is live from now until October 31.

This initiative, covering the half-term break, offers families hundreds of episodes from channels including Sky Kids HD, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Cartoonito and more (see the full list below).

This move comes as a pleasant surprise (and one that Virgin Media seems to repeat a couple of times a year), especially at a time when many are tightening their belts.

The Kids Bundle, usually priced at £5 per month, encompasses popular shows like Monster High 2, Teen Titans Go!, PAW Patrol, and Fireman Sam.

Virgin Media’s Kids TV Pick bundle was enhanced earlier this year with the inclusion of Sky Kids in HD, adding more value to the bundle.

Now, with this October offer, the Kids TV Pick provides a wider spectrum of programming, all aimed at keeping children engaged and entertained through the half-term.

Moreover, all of these shows will be available on demand, as well as live, allowing for flexible viewing schedules. 

This isn’t the first time Virgin Media has extended such an offering. A similar gesture was made earlier in the year, where free access to kids’ channels was provided for a limited time.
