These have been available on my Stream box since Monday. Selecting them opens the Pluto TV app and streams the channels.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

Sorry, but I really don't see the fascination with FAST channels. However, if they fill a gap in the market, good luck to them. Personally, I find them third rate, but that's just my opinion.

I wonder if the FAST channels will still be operating in 20 years' time?

Well, it is only a mechanism to launch selected channels from the EPG, the channels are still there in the Pluto app for anyone wishing to watch them on a V6 box. It does make you think though, how long was it since Virgin said that various Pluto channels were to be integrated with the EPG? Months after the announcement they only manage a partial launch.

Not just a shift. OB has designed revolving goal posts just for this forum.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

Richard assuming again ?

His question was ;

Quote:
Do you know if/when people will be forcibly migrated from V6 to 360?
So the response of 'Yes' does no confirm their will be a migration at all.

What's the difference?

You yourself a mere 15 months ago were waxing lyrical about their position in the future over tired, boring, linear channels.
