Re: New VM carriage dispute regarding up to 30 channels.

Maybe Virgin wants to axe some channels if they have an HD Channel (MTV HD, Paramount Network HD and Nick HD)

Maybe Viacom want their main channels to sit beside each other (Move Paramount to Channel 155).

Or maybe Virgin want all the missing Viacom channels that do not broadcast on Virgin right now.

---------- Post added at 22:07 ---------- Previous post was at 21:58 ----------

Virgin do not carry the following Viacom channels:

Nick Jr. HD
Nick Jr. +1
Comedy Central Extra +1
5Spike +1
MTV CLASSIC (Broadcasts in Virgin Media Ireland areas right now).
MTV MUSIC +1
MTV +1

Things look ok for the moment, so I would try not to worry too much. If the worst does come to the worst, 5 Star is available for free on Freeview & satellite.

I think it could still be a week or two. Given the possibility of withdrawal went public they'll probably want to publicly say fairly promptly that it's been done, I'd imagine.

Since Just after midnight the following services have been carrying a black screen with no messages

151 5Star
152 5 Select
154 5 Spike
155 5+1
185 5 USA +1
186 5 Star +1
188 Paramount (SD)

UPDATE - it’s a play out issue as it is affecting Sky as well.

Nope. Definitely not.

They are a shareholder in Discovery, but they don't run it.
