Due to the way Disney has been cutting channels in the past years (Disney XD +1 and Your TV on Virgin UK)

I feel by 2023 we will see all Disney channels close as TV broadcasting channels and move into that soon to Disney + app.

-Fox
-Fox +1
-FOX HD
-Lifetime HD
-Crime + Investigation HD
-Blaze
-Crime + Investigation +1
-Nat Geo Wild HD
-National Geographic Channel
-National Geographic Channel +1
-National Geographic Channel HD
-History HD
-History +1
-History 2 HD
-BabyTV
-Disney XD
-Disney Channel
-Disney Channel +1
-Disney Junior
-Star Gold HD
-Star Bharat
-Star Plus HD

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

Media Boy, the A&E channels: History, H2, Blaze, C&E, Vice are not owned by Disney, as far as the UK goes.

When Disney bought most of Murdoch's companies, the European Commission ordered Disney to sell off the A&E channels as they decided that Disney would be too dominant in the factual channels genre in the EU.

These channels, as far as the UK goes, are a joint venture between Hearst and Comcast (Sky).

I did not know that bit.

Now I know why Disney HD Channels did not launch when Lifetime, History and Crime + Investigation HD Channels was moved last year.

I do not know why Nat Geo SD Channel is still broadcasting for when Nat Geo Wild SD Channel has been axe.

Unless Disney plan to launch a UK version of Hulu. This is also my 300th post, too.

I think it’ll mostly be Hulu originals as well as 15/18-rated Disney properties.

Makes a lot of sense but how long will it take virgin media to implement it? Based on amazon prime over a year. Based on the whole "we're going to take advantage of the tivo v6 by adding lots of apps" i'd say possibly never since we never really got any apps....

Except that foreign tv one which they then axed
