Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Proof of Good Food content being put on Food Network when Good Food closes has now appeared on the EPG. Great British Bake Off, Rick Stein, James Martin and other British well known names are all showing in amongst the usual Food Network staples of Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

Maybe they'll ask for Food Network to get one of the freed up channel numbers? 278 would be a decent leap frog from 291, and there's space below it for the +1 if they wanted to bring a new channel to VM, or for sister channel Travel Channel to move up also.

However most of the channels they would be leap frogging are their Pay channels, so they may not want to.

Good to hear that these will continue, I know they're repeats but are still worth a re-run.

Maybe now Food Network can have an HD version as well?

Agreed Diners drive-ins and dives is one of my favourite shows.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

I can't see VM moving all those channels out of Factual and still keep a Factual category. Sky getting rid of their Documentaries category has make their EPG awful to find anything on, there's no logic to it. I hope VM don't copy it in that respect.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

BT Sport WSL 4K pop-up channel now on 532. It will broadcast a match tomorrow and then disappear. HD version on channel 100 at same time.

Thanks to JJ20X on Forumbox for noticing. I just checked and confirmed on EPG.

I believe this might happen multiple times for other WSL matches.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Assuming that channel 999 closes later this month, will my planned recordings still record on the new number allocated to the Virgin UHD channel? Or will I have to re-set them?
