Teletext Holidays has returned to TV screens, as part of Virgin Media’s TiVo service.
Available through TiVo’s ‘apps and games’ section, Teletext Holidays offers travel deals through a few button presses from the comfort of their living rooms without needing to fire up a laptop or computer.
The app also has videos and destination guides.
Also, customers can use TiVo’s TV guide app on their mobiles to set up recordings so they can watch their favourite shows while away on holiday.
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.
‘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.’
Aleks Habdank, director of digital entertainment at Virgin Media, 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.’
