Re: Brexit blackout warning to channels.

It is down to the individual channel to hold a UK licence rather than the parent company. Eurosport UK doesn't have an Ofcom license. They will need to acquire one soon and move their satellite uplink to the UK if it is still based in Paris.

Aye agreed. I think people honestly think its as easy to say "we're leaving" and its done and dusted. The amount of european laws which need to be copied over technically into our legalisation hundreds of thousands...nothing of this size with a country of our size has been done before its an incredibly complex thing. Will the channels be blacked out? No i see no reason. Is there a bloody lot of work to do before brexit to ensure a smooth transition for channels you bet your bottom yes. So its not project fear or remoaning its being realistic.

Anyway enough politics chat from me it bores me these days- 2019 should be interesting regardless for virgin media

Unfortunately, some (admittedly minority) channels have now confirmed that they have/will be closing in the UK.

Presumably they didn't think it worth the hassle of getting a licence from Ofcom to transmit to the UK
A516Digital is reporting TV5 will brexit Virgin Media UK on Friday (January 18th).
