Virgin Media adds Turner HD channels

Virgin Media has added two new HD channels from Turner to its programming line-up.

The UK cable operator is adding movie channel TCM HD and Cartoon Network HD, as well as TCM 2, to its TV service at no extra cost to subscribers, bringing the total number of HD channels on the platform to 39.

Virgin Media TiVo customers will also have access to two interactive games related to Cartoon Network content via the Cartoon Network app. Content from Cartoon Network, Cartoonito and Boomerang will meanwhile be made available on Virgin TV Anywhere across a range of devices, as well as 3D on demand on Virgin TV later this year.

Anthony Lukom, Turner UK general manager and managing director said: “It’s fantastic news that Virgin Media customers now have the opportunity to watch TCM’s vast library of films and first run cinematic series such as Hell on Wheels and Wild Boys, as well as Cartoon Network’s much loved kids’ shows in HD quality format. This is another exciting step in our network’s continuing evolution, giving our growing audiences outstanding viewer experiences.”
