The Curzon Home Cinema App has launched on Virgin Media’s TiVo service.

Virgin Media subscribers will now get access to a range of independent films at the same time they are released in UK and Ireland cinemas, as well as classic and themed collections picked by experts employed by Curzon.

While the service is geared towards independent films, big named stars such as Al Pacino and Oscar-nominated films are present.

Titles currently on the service include Still Alice and Manglehorn, which stars Julianne Moore and Al Pacino, respectively.

The Curzon Home Cinema App is already available on Amazon’s Fire TV, Freesat, BT TV, and Samsung Smart TVs.

Curzon operates a ‘pay as you watch’ rental system, although no membership is required – eliminating the need for a monthly fee – and the movie will be available on any device where the App can be downloaded.

What’s more, users will be able to pause a film on one device and pick up where they left off on another.

David Bouchier, chief digital entertainment officer at Virgin Media says: “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 adds: “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.”
