It's not that long ago they changed to Shopping Quarter and then quickly changed back. Probably cost cutting.

Found the following posted on JM wiki page.

On January 1, 2022, the channel was removed from Virgin Media, which the channel classified as a “Personal Decision” for its removal.

It’s only been ‘promised’ (if that’s the right word) for the 360 boxes, and it’s still not appeared on those yet and we have had no updates on that information.

Whether the V6s will ever support it, I am not optimistic.

I have found that Nat Geo on demand only got programmes listed up to a 29th of January on my TiVo box.

Base on information I found on demand it look like Virgin's deal with National Geographic is up on January 29th with Astra UK soon to follow next month.

According to that poster Dizagaox from Digital Spy

Quote:

Serious discussions are taking place between Virgin and Sky with Disney, including switching over to a pan-European feed (no catchup or streaming rights), but as of right now, Disney is closing down the National Geographic UK linear channel on 1st February 2022 at 5am.

All past content starts a mass migration over to Disney+ from this Wednesday.

All new National Geographic content is exclusive to Disney+ from this Wednesday.
