Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

Could the UKTV & Virgin Media dispute be good news for Freesat customers?

When the current UKTV/Sky contract comes to an end, I am wondering if Sky may take the view that UKTV could not afford to lose another shed load of customers taking their pay channels and that they too will push for reduced carriage costs as VM did (allegedly by 50%).

UKTV may well decide that they are better off making all their channels FTA on satellite, which would obviously benefit Freesat customers. Just a thought!

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

The above dispute has now been resolved, so no longer relevant.

Social Media post from Vintage TV:

Vintage TV We won't be coming back to Freeview. We're in talks to come back to Virgin and we'll be back on Sky before the end of the month.

Looks like it won't be coming back to Freesat, but viewers will be able to tune it in via Non Freesat mode.

In the meantime, some people have been accessing the stream and casting it to their TV as a workaround:
