I have been asking VM if they can add this to the Hemel headend, as we now have the service from a local Freeview relay in Hemel & St.Albans. However nothing has materialised as yet.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Drama +1 is showing on TSid2 / C061. Coming Soon is showing on the EPG data on DigitalBitRate and there's a name label for the channel. There is no test picture on screengrab, it's currently showing Lifetime.

No, but most of the stuff on there is available in HD or can be upscaled. There isn't an HD variant available at the moment, but the point is, there should be. Hopefully the provision of HD versions of all former UKTV channels was part of the recent carriage arrangements agreed with Virgin Media.

However, I've seen no links to support this yet.

Ironically it would make more sense to have Drama in HD than Gold as most of the stuff on Gold is that old even upscaling is bad or it is studio stuff (about an hour a day) that doesn’t really matter.

Agreed. Some of the programmes on Drama are ok, actually, but I avoid them because of the picture quality.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

On DBR, I noticed that a InternalF and Project2 are both testing in MPEG4 format on CO68. The latter has Challenge’s EPG data. Any guesses?
http://www.digitalbitrate.com/dtv.ph...ng=en&mux=C068

There is also a ‘sans nom’ in MPEG4 on CO71, but Good Food’s data is still active.

The C068 stuff has been like that for a while, I can't seen anything that I've not seen for a while.

The Sans Nom on C071 I think is just where True Crime was. But it's late and I could be getting mixed up.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Updated versions of the September Channel Guide PDFs, including all the Sony channel changes and the removal of Good Food etc:

Desktop version:
https://www.virginmedia.com/content/...mber2019v2.pdf

Mobile version:
https://www.virginmedia.com/content/...mber2019v2.pdf

Still showing the swap between Amazon Prime Video and Virgin TV Ultra HD on 205 and 228 which is yet to happen.

No sign of Drama +1.

InternalF is not broadcasting in MPEG4 it broadcasting UHD also been broadcasting since July 2018.

No real idea when Preject2 is broadcasting for but it did move CO68 the few months back with Reallives +1.

We do not know what in hell Virgin are doing with CO68 we mean it broadcasting the following:

-THREE UHD Channels.
-THREE Red Button Channels
-18 Radio Channels.
-"Channel off air" Channel
-Unknown channel
-RealLives +1

That "sans nom" slot was left over when Virgin did move RealLives +1 to CO 68. Picture confirm it.
