VH1 now available on Windows Phone and Windows 8

VH1 for Windows

VH1 is a popular cable television network based of NYC. It launched in the mid-80’s and was originally meant to showcase music videos, but that, of course, changed as time went on. Now you’ll find all sorts of reality programs, original programming and the occasional music video on VH1. You can now also watch that content on your Windows Phone or Windows 8.1 device thanks to the new VH1 app.

This VH1 app is a Universal Windows app, which means you’ll be getting it on both Windows Phone and Windows 8. The apps will share pricing, features, and more as time goes on.

VH1 on Windows 8.1

Here’s what you’ll be getting today with VH1:

  • Authenticate through a cable or satellite provider to watch a full episode
  • Browse through the list of broadcast series
  • See all videos and playlists for a particular series
  • Browse through the list of videos in a particular category
  • Watch a video from one of the Quickies category

VH1 for Windows Phone

You’ll need to sign in with your cable/satellite provider to watch full episodes with the app. We signed in with our Verizon FiOS account and were able to stream an episode of Hollywood Exes, our absolute favorite show, with no problems.

It’s a solid app for anyone interesting in the content on VH1 and worth downloading since it’s free. Take it for a spin and let us know what you think.

Thanks for the tip Antonio!

Good question.  Having a Black Sabbath video with Ozzy's vocals in front of a pschedelic backdrop, where ever I am, would be great!

Man, what is happening today. This is like some kind of twilight zone with all the official support via updates and apps. Great to see.

Network has sadly gone the way of its parent, MTV. All reality garbage and hardly anything to do with music anymore. :'(

Ooh I hope they have some of the VH1 Storytellers within the app. Maxwell and Jill Scott killed it. Downloading now.

Just watched Adrian Smith on that metal show. For you knuckleheads, Adrian Smith is the lead guitarist of iron maiden. My favorite band
