Batman teams up with Virgin TiVo

Virgin Media launches dedicated Dark Knight app for its set-top box

To celebrate the UK cinema release of The Dark Knight Rises, Virgin Media has teamed up with Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures to launch a dedicated Dark Knight app for its TiVo service.

Claiming to 'give Virgin Media customers the chance to immerse themselves in unique interactive content on the final installment of Christopher Nolan's ground-breaking Dark Knight trilogy', the app allows fans to view a selection of dedicated trailers and clips from all three films in the series, as well as browse through pictures, watch interviews with the cast of The Dark Knight Rises and check out biographies for all of the key characters in the movie.

To complement the launch of the app, fans will also be able to catch up on Nolan's previous installments in the trilogy, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, which are available to rent through Virgin Media Movies of Demand.

'The hotly anticipated finale of Christopher Nolan's trilogy is sure to be the summer blockbuster' gushed Aleks Habdank, director of digital entertainment product at Virgin Media. 'Our new app gives TiVo customers the perfect way to immerse themselves in the action and catch up on the story in advance of the film's release... This app is another great example of a great experience that only Virgin Media customers can enjoy'.

The Dark Knight Rises app can be found in the Apps and Games section on Virgin Media TiVo.
