Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

The launch of Drama +1 on VM must be imminent, as it has now been added to the list of channels included in Mixit / Big.

https://www.virginmedia.com/shop/tv/channels

Good Food, HD and +1 have all been removed ahead of the closure of the channels. No sign of an HD or +1 variant for Food Network though.

Drama +1 on VM will come in useful as some of their series are always on at the same time as many other good series.

Drama is one channel that would benefit greatly from going HD.

Indeed.
I find all Skys SD channels, including Sky News, almost unwatchable due to their fuzzy downgraded PQ. The conspiracy theorist in me thinks Sky deliberately downgrade their SD quality hoping customers pay extra to upgrade to channel packages that include their HD variant.

Yes l suspect your assumptions may well be correct.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Can't say I find Sky's SD channel quality to be bad. But we have a Full HD 32 inch screen which we are perfectly happy with, maybe it's the bigger screens it becomes an issue.
