A TV provider is giving its customers free access to some of its most popular children’s channels during the coronavirus pandemic.

Virgin Media has announced it is offering families a helping hand to keep their children entertained by making seven TV channels free to view until April 21.

The channels on offer include Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Cartoonito and Nickelodeon.

The upgrade is available to customers on Virgin Media’s Player, Mixit and Maxit bundles at no extra cost.

Eligible customers do not have to do anything and there will be no change to their contract.
