Usually sit about 7-15% myself. Have been at 30 odds after a longish holiday.

We’re often at 40-60%, but that’s mostly stuff that SWMBO records/sets series links for, which I have her gracious permission to delete if not watched within 2 months.

True (and that has happened to me a few times). Due to illness i've not been able to watch a lot of programmes (mainly dramas) that I've recorded, so it's worse than it usually is.

I also record a lot of radio, which you'd expect not to use much, but for some reason it does.

epsilon thinks this might be because it also records a lot of other data as well as the actual radio programmes.

A new subscription pack code appeared on Friday evening - one up from the code used for Premier Sport. It has been allocated to LaLiga TV on channel 554 and What's on Virgin TV on channel 998.

Yeah.. any ideas?
Maybe Virgin are getting ready for LaLiga TV to move to a BT Sports pack as BT Sports are set to win a rights to LaLiga base on reporting I have seen on Twitter over a past week.

Possibly, it would seem to be a new subs tier for La Liga but channel 998 makes no sense at all.

Tonight has saw both Channel 4 AD and Channel 5 AD being axe from Virgin Channels 854 and 855.

Is S4C AD set to close on May 17th?

They are not really being ‘axe’( d ) or closing they are just now available on an easier to find channel number.

Broadcast says ITV to cut some On Demand from both Sky and Virgin Media ahead of ITV X launch.


Quote:
“ITV has taken the strategic decision to reduce the availability of pre-transmission drama drops and box sets outside of its own streaming services, such as on Sky and Virgin, where we cannot serve and monetise dynamic advertising,” the company said.

It’s anticipated that ITV Hub will be “widely available” through distribution partners at launch.

Well, that either indicates that either:

You don't watch much TV OR
Younmainly watch streeamers
You are quite happy to wait for a scheduled show to start and you watch the advertisements.

If the latter, you are wasting your life.
