Nah they’ll be desperate. Usually the folk that Virgin get into disputes with at least have some leverage over them. DAZN have nothing.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

Virgin Media did not launch Discovery+ last month.

I can now reveal that Discovery + was set to launch on Virgin Media in November.

No news on when it will launch.

I was given the news on Discovery was in talks with Virgin Media over the launch of Discovery+ on August 4th was I hold back on naming it at the time as talks was online.

I did not know until December 11th that Discovery+ was set to launch on Virgin Media (V6 and TV360 boxes) in November. But I was ban from naming it due to my sources not give me a OK it post the name. My sources give me OK today.

Since November 12th (That fake story I posted on Cable Forum about Disney +) I have started ask any sources (when two has given me the same info) to OK naming any channel / streaming service before I post.

I wouldn't pay to watch repeats of programmes that were free when first shown.

The concept of Britbox is seriously flawed IMO
