Virgin Media Player on Nokia N8

Virgin Media has announced the launch of the Nokia N8, the first handset to come preloaded with its own video-on-demand software. The Virgin Media Player app will also give access to content from 4oD, Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon.

Virgin says: “The brand-new Nokia N8 is the first handset to come pre-loaded with the ‘Virgin Media Player’ app which gives customers the ability to watch their favourite programmes from Virgin Media’s growing library of mobile TV content whenever they want, wherever they are.”

“The Virgin Media Player app will also be available to download free from the Nokia Ovi store for any Nokia N8 customers on any mobile network.”

The Virgin Media Player launched earlier this year, and the company is keen to expand the usage and sees the N8 as an ideal device.
