Virgin Central

Virgin Central was a barker channel from Virgin Media Television, promoting video-on-demand content. The service was launched on the Virgin Media cable television platform on 20 February 2007. Viewers were presented with a video loop promoting the programmes available. They would then press the red button on the remote control and would be presented with a list of television series, episodes of which they could have watched at any time they like during the week. The programmes were all free to watch, and did not have any adverts in them. The viewer could also have use their remote control to pause, fast forward, rewind and stop the programme at any time.
