VH1 now available on Windows Phone and Windows 8

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
  • See the TV schedule for the next seven days

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!

  • Does this include VH1 Classic or just regular VH1?

  • Only show id watch is that metal show or rock show
  • Pop up videos!
  • Glad to see more official apps. I don't watch vh1 anymore but good to know its there when I need it
  • 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. :'(
  • Sign of the times. Music is dead. Sure, there is stuff they call music, but it doesn't count.
  • Some of today's music is good. Draws influences from the 80s and early 90s.
  • A bit overdramatic don't you think? There is a ton of good music out there.
  • There's a ton of good music, but nothing popular. You just have to know how to find it :)

  • App not available for your device! #Lumia920
