Teletext Holidays lands on Virgin TiVo

Teletext Holidays has launched an application on Virgin Media's TiVo service.

The new app enables viewers to search for travel deals and provides tourist information, images and videos on chosen destinations.

Victoria Sanders, Teletext Holidays managing director, said: "Searching for holidays on the television is what our brand is famous for so the partnership with Virgin Media is an exciting new direction for us. We've invested in creating an app which is simple, inspiring and practical to use."

Aleks Habdank, director of digital entertainment at Virgin Media added, "The flexibility of Virgin Media's TiVo service has enabled Teletext Holidays to bring its much-loved holiday deals back to TV. TiVo customers can now go from watching their favourite holiday show to planning a getaway of their own with just a few clicks of their TiVo remote. This is just the kind of interactive experience that we know our customers get excited about, and with TiVo's constantly evolving range of innovative apps and services there really is something for everyone to enjoy."

Last month Teletext Holidays annnounced it will be shutting down its Freeview channel at the end of September in order to focus on developing apps and platforms for Smart or connected TV's.
