Maybe it was only talk on this forum last summer then?

Trouble with this forum is there is a lot of speculation posted under threads such as changes which imply facts.

Rather than tack it onto these types of thread it would be better to start a speculation type thread

The only question has been about when in 2020, which is not clear to this day.

The blurb says:

As part of the extended deal, Sky’s stellar line up of entertainment, cinema and sports channels will continue to be available on Virgin Media’s TV platform, with Virgin customers set to enjoy new Ultra HD linear and additional video-on-demand content from Sky next year.

That sounds pretty concrete to me.
