Stream users cannot currently subscribe to the extra channels which were not previously listed on my blog. https://ukcabletvchanges.blogspot.com/2024/01/ will be updated as new subscription pack codes are added, enabling these additional services.

If a channel you want to watch a channel NOT on my list https://mediaboyukblog.blogspot.com/...in-stream.html

You can't watch them until Virgin Media HQ updated their codes.

It looks like Stream could be being geared up to become VM's primary TV offering, especially given the XGS-PON rollout. Now, it just needs some cloud recording!
Hmmm! with near channel parity between Stream and TV360 should I just throw the cat among the pigeons and ask when it is likely to become a fully fledged product with multi-room capabilities?

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

Sky History +1 (channel 331) closing down at 6am tomorrow according to the VM EPG. Not sure if that's all platforms, or just VM.

Has Virgin been ask to axe Sky History +1 for Sky Sports Tennis to launch?

Virgin did close Yesterday+1 and Eden+1 in 2008 for Watch channels (Now called W and W+1) to launch.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

Sky shut down E! only a few weeks ago...

Sky History technically is managed and operated by A+E Networks UK team from their Hammersmith offices not Sky’s at Osterley.

The A+E Networks UK are own by both A+E and Sky UK - both 50%.

I keep on forget also this - so maybe a new deal.

SD Channels are rumoured on other web sites that set to close soon on Sky (Astra) in the coming months. So maybe Sky History +1 is on the unknown list of channels closing.

It doesn't look like it's being removed from Sky as their EPG continues with listings for the future.

Unfortunately, just another downgrade to the system since Mr Musk took over Twitter. You now need an account to view posts, although even that seems a bit hit and miss. I created an account to view it but I don't plan on becoming a regular Twitter user, especially not with it's current management.

Bluesky and/or Mastodon may be added when the system goes fully live in March. It depends how things go. (I don't know if they are any easier to view).

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

I have a twatter account somewhere, but last time I tried to login, it just crashed with an error. I have not really bothered since and the username/password are not in my current PW manager (they will be in the old one, but I cant be bothered to find them). I was able to view posts last week, so its only just changed.

Probably an EPG error as the "Channel No Longer Available" descriptions have shuffled forward to February 8th.

Sky History HD along with Sky History +1, Crime+Inv HD & Crime+Inv +1 have had a minor switch of subscription codes, moving from Documentaries to Entertainment. This means that any subscribers with any of the legacy personal picks will now receive the channels. Previously available to personal pick subscribers with the Entertainment & Documentaries pick.

In other news, SONY SAB is currently available to all users, possibly only for a limited period.

That look like (to me anyway) that Virgin has signed a last minute deal with A&E Network UK/

Why do I think this way?

*Crime+Inv HD - Channel 133.
*Sky HISTORY +1 - Channel 331.
*Crime+Inv +1 - Channel 333.
*Sky HISTORY HD - Channel 131.
-Channel listed has change subscription packages from Documentary to Entertainment.
-All Mixit users with personal picks will now be able to view these channels.

Or Virgin is progressively trying to get rid of the personal picks completely. I suppose it depends on how many subscribers are actually on personal picks. Numbers will be going down as they are no longer sold to new users.
