Teletext Holidays to return to TV screens

Teletext Holidays is returning to TV screens under the umbrella of Virgin Media.

The service will be available through Virgin Media’s TiVo’s ‘Apps and Games’ section.

TiVo viewers can use the new app to search for holiday deals by destination and departure point. Destination videos and guides are included.

When on holiday, people can use TiVo’s TV Guide app on mobile devices to set up recordings of progammes.

Teletext Holidays managing director Victoria Sanders 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. The joy for customers is being able to browse through available holidays, view hotel images and destination video guides all from the comfort of their sofa.”

Virgin Media digital entertainment director Aleks Habdank said: “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.”

Teletext Holidays joins other apps available on TiVo, including BBC iPlayer, YouTube and Spotify.
