Just like the 'Christmas' channels. All they are doing is changing the name for a period of time.

That's correct, it's on the same channel as Sky Sports Action, to which it will probably revert the following month.

Am I the only one who thinks these re-brandings at various times of the year are pointless and a total waste of time?

I completely agree with both of you however consumer feedback clearly tells Sky it raises awareness of the content it has.

It seems apps are decreasing in quantity on Virgins platform rather then increasing..

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2018)

Excuse me if already discussed but any news re Sky Sports Racing

Launches 1st January, I understand for Sky subscribers it will be included in basic packs and in HD. Is that the same for Virgin? Is it testing?

Yes it will appear on the 1st January.

Quote:
Sky Sports Racing will be a rebrand of At The Races, which is already available on Virgin. The only thing that is likely to happen is that non Sky Sports subscribers will lose the channel as it moves in with the other premiums.
Quote:
Sky Sports Racing will remain available to Sky customers on channel 415 and to Virgin customers on channel 535.

Just another rebrand, I guess. A bit like SS Action is currently SS Darts.

We will still get the channel in HD. Don't be fooled. It's just a change of name. Nothing else changes except that the channel will be devoted to US sports for the designated period.
