Curzon Home Cinema’s independent cinema app has launched on Virgin Media’s TiVo.

The app, curated by Curzon cinemas, gives Virgin Media customers access to a range of independent films at the same time they are released into UK and Ireland cinemas, as well as classic and themed collections handpicked by Curzon’s movie experts.

It’s previously launched on Freesat and BT TV’s YouView.

David Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media said: “We’re delighted to bring Curzon Home Cinema’s films and curated selections to our customers across the country. We’re passionate about keeping people entertained with an ever-increasing movie offering which is why TiVo is the perfect home for Curzon’s app.”

Phil Mordecai, Director of Curzon Home Cinema said: “We are extremely excited to be bringing 80 years of cinema expertise to Virgin Media TiVo customers, who can now enjoy a Curzon Cinema experience in the comfort of their own home.”

The window between cinema screenings and in home availability is continuing to shorten. In the case of independent cinema services such as that offered by Curzon gives an additional window to a genre that can find obtaining screen time difficult.
