Your weekend has just got a whole lot better.

We understand that living in the world of Netflix means that we have a lot excellent movies at our disposal at all times.

If a box office hit comes out in the cinemas, you can be fairly confident that it will make its way to the streaming service at some point in the near future.

But at the same time, we’re never going to complain about getting to see even more top class movies.

And that’s exactly what Virgin Media TV customers will get to enjoy this weekend, as part of a once-off deal.

To celebrate the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival, you can have your very own film festival in your house from 22 February until 24 February.

If you are a Virgin Media customer, you will have access to Virgin’s On Demand service, which will feature some of the biggest and best movies of the past year.

Some of the movies that you will be able to choose from include Black 47, American Animals, Ant-Man and The Wasp, First Man, BlacKkKlansman, Venom and loads more.

Paul Higgins, Director of Consumer at Virgin Media, spoke about the deal, saying: “We love surprising our customers and for an exclusive weekend in February, we’re inviting all our TV customers to experience a Free Movie Weekend on us.

“Virgin TV customers can sample and explore from our On Demand service which contains a wide range of popular films and fan favourites that are sure to appeal to all tastes.”

That’s our weekend sorted anyway.
