Parents can also continue to entertain younger kids throughout half term with curriculum-based shows, games, books and music from ad-free phone and tablet app Hopster until the end of the month.

“We realise that it can be challenging to find fresh and interesting ways to keep the kids (and ourselves!) entertained, especially during the winter months. That’s why we’ve boosted our free TV offering just in time for half term, giving all of our customers access to a large choice of additional channels and programmes”, said Virgin Media’s Chief TV & Entertainment Officer David Bouchier.

“Those looking for inspiration and ideas can also tuck into a selection of food and travel shows from Tastemade, which are now available on demand, at no extra cost”.

The 22 new channels will be available at no extra cost from February 15 to March 16, while the kids channels will be around until March 2. The Hopster app will be available until March 31. To take advantage all of these free content, simply sign up to Virgin TV.
