Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

I was playing about with my TiVo box last night to see what to watch.

I found that both Movies 24 & Movies 24+ are now broadcasting movies with subtitles. And "Sky Cinema top 10" is also being shown.

So is the following set to happen:

Movies 24 > Sky Cinema True Story
Movies 24+ > Sky Cinema Mix

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Are you meaning foreign language films, or literally that subtitles are now available?

Them showing Sky Cinema top 10 isn't new, they have for a while.

subtitles are now available.

Last night was a first time I turn into Movies 24 in 21months.

My late dad was a fan of a channel.

If so, Sky is getting quite desperate now. Has anyone noticed the lack of new films on Sky Cinema Premiere lately, and the dearth of films made less than 20 years ago? Looks like they are all going to the streamers.

I dont have Sky Cinema in - as Sky lack of new films has been going on since before Comcast took Sky over.

I wish Sky would have stays with they pre Digital days re Sky Movies Plus, The Movie Channel and Sky Movies Gold.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Media Boy Sources has reveal a latest update on both E! and Movies 24.

As some of you may know Sky UK runs COMCAST channels for them in the UK due to Brexit (Sky is owned by Comcast as of 2019):

Universal Channel did become Sky Comedy in 2020.

Here is a latest I have been given by my sources on E! and Movies 24 on what may happen to them.

*My sources says Sky is still on "borderline" on what to do with Movies 24.
*My sources say E! is set to be revamped.

Information was right at time of posting.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

For some reason neither Channel 4 HD or BBC Four HD are flagged as being HD in the Virgin TV Control app. It only appears to be those channels missing the correct identifiers.

HD flag now added to Channel 4 HD, but BBC Four HD is still without one. I'm not sure if this is a new issue or if its always been like that.

It's been like that since BBC4 SD was removed.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

"Upgraded" to TV 360, big mistake it's shite compared to TiVo, so many issues and limitations. We had 2 tivos now upgraded, one in the living room and the other in my son's bedroom, if recording something downstairs he can't record it to his boxes well since I'm already recording it. Some might think this isn't an issue but if I watch it then delete it when not knowing he wanted to watch it too there is no option to recover the show.

This is one of many issues and am going to fight to get my 2 tivos back if I can.

I agree, the 360 is a downgrade IMO.

Please let us know how you get on as they really won't want to put you back in the position that you were previously in. I suspect that the time will come when everyone not on 360 will be forcibly migrated and that's when I will leave.

If they do allow you to go back to TiVo, I wonder if there is a system in place to download the TiVo software onto a 360 box?? If not, they will have to give you two V6 boxes (if they have any left).

Does anyone know when the UKTV carriage contract is up? I'm trying to work out when/if we will get Yesterdsy HD as it's started on Sky.
