No chance at all, as Really is their second most popular channel, there is no way they would close it!

It would never get replaced by a +1 unless it's ratings fell off a cliff.

Really got a 0.73 in the last Weekly BARB ratings. Most +1s were getting ratings nothing remotely that good back when BARB website still showed separate data for them rather than combining them. They are typical a very small fraction of the main channel. Only the main PSB channel +1s get significant ratings.

Some of the other Discovery channel ratings (which include +1 numbers) for most current available week:
Quest 1.08
Quest Red 0.68
DMAX 0.47
HGTV 0.40
Food Network 0.31
Discovery Channel 0.24
TLC 0.22
Investigation Discovery 0.19

Really isn't going anywhere the ratings are decent and they have invested quite a bit into new programming.

ITV (UTV) has switched HD from 113 to 103 in NI. All series links have migrated ok as expected.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2020)

As spotted by JJ20X on Forum Box, VM has just doubled the number of HD channels on one stream. TSid 23 now contains all the HD channels from TSid 24 too.
https://www.digitalbitrate.com/dtv.p...ve=209&lang=en

-----Existing----
Sky Sports Mix HD
TJC HD
Sky Sports Arena HD
CBBC HD
BBC FOUR HD
CBeebies HD
Sky Sports Golf HD
Sky Arts HD
-----Newly added-----
Sky Sports News HD
Nat Geo WILD HD
BT Sport 3 HD
Sky Hits HD
Sky Animation HD
Paramount Network HD
E! HD

A likely sign of things to come? Wonder how noticeable this will be re: picture quality.

Apparently this already happened to TSid 13. I clearly didn't take it on-board when JJ20X mentioned it regards that transport stream.

That would explain why several of my favourites vanished and had to be marked again on both my V6 boxes.

Incredibly disappointing as it had some great content on it.

No surprise tbh with SKY Nature being launched and Love Nature content will be on there.

I wonder if the LoveNature content will remain on the Virgin Media Ultra HD Channel?

Sky Nature isn't available on the same lower tiers as LoveNature currently is, so some customers (me included) will be losing access to their output entirely.

Such a shame.

Sky Nature isn't included in my Virgin TV package so I'll miss being able to dip into the Love Nature HD content.

I cannot find any information that corroborates that, MB. Do you have a link?

If true, maybe they are expanding Love Nature HD programming to the Virgin Ultra HD channel. Perhaps the 4K channel is planning to extend its broadcasting hours.
