TV Times is reporting the following channel numbers that are not right:

141. 5USA (Channel 4 HD is broadcasting on that channel right now outside London)
141. 5USA HD (Channel 4 HD is broadcasting on that channel right now outside London)
711. CITV HD (CITV do not have an HD Channel)

Look like Virgin Media are launching both MTV Classic and La Liga TV on old VH1* and ZooMoo HD* slots.

*Both channels are set to close on January 7th.

I think MTV Classic will be given Channel 317.
I think La Liga TV will be given Channel 550 or 555. (I am 80% going with channel 550)

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

excellent news about sky comedy. Lets hope it launches at the same time rather than a typical sky exclusive for 6 months or some other daft idea.

Well Sky Crime DID launch on the same day as Sky.

Sky Comedy will appear on Universal TV Channels numbers (Unless Sky ask Virgin to move the Sky Basic channels numbers again.)

I had a conversation with a sky retentions person a couple of days ago - she said sky are actively trying to get enough UHD program content to warrant having dedicated channels.

Channel 5 have been showing it lately too. Though they have same ownership as Comedy Central.

This is probably due to the recent deal between Sky and AT&T/Warners.

Friends will air on HBOMax in the States from May, but as a result of the deal, Sky gets first access rights to all HBO stuff as far as we're concerned in the UK, so that must be why Friends will be on Sky Comedy.

Not seen anything since the initial press release. I'd be surprised if The Simpsons is on Sky Comedy.

A quick search brings up this list on the Wikipedia page.

Mrs. Fletcher
The Righteous Gemstones
A.P. Bio
Sunnyside
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Ballers
Barry
Kidding
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
Saturday Night Live
Will & Grace
Parks and Recreation
Entourage
Eastbound & Down
Veep
30 Rock
Miracle Workers
Sex & The City
The Office
Everybody Hates Chris
Run

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sky_Comedy

As it's Wikipedia, and anyone can add to the page, I'd take that list with a pinch of salt. Though The Righteous Gemstones was mentioned in the Press Release.

I seen an advert for Sky Comedy on Sky News last night and quite a few of those were in the ad so it will probably be right enough, up until now 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver' & 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' among others have been Sky Atlantic exclusives.

Nice to see them spreading over more channels (and ones we can get)

Itís definitely coming as it replaces Universal Channel

On another note I notice VH-1 Xmas has been reverted back to MTV Rocks and the V6 EPG logo is a lot bigger which is sensible.

Maybe the rest of the MTV channels will follow suit.
