Those channel numbers don't mean a lot in isolation but deduct the number 60 from them and they bear a remarkable resemblance to the TNT Sports channel numbers!!!
Also a couple of promotional rebrands.
For full details of these and other changes see: https://ukcabletvchanges.blogspot.com/
Although, perhaps not full details of the 587-591 channel numbers as there is no speculation on the blog.
I remember you posting that they did this before the UKTV channels were withdrawn. Looking like Virgin mean business.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

Just a cautious approach I suppose. If the negotiations go bad they will have closure slates prepared. If all goes well, the slates won't be needed. I'm not sure about the details of what happened with the UKTV channel removal farce. I was, sort of, following the narrative but was tied up doing technical analysis for a couple of European companies 2018 - 2020. The pandemic ended that line of work.

Would be funny if they have to rebrand it.
You have really weird sense of humour

Stuff like Horse & Country and Blaze and a lot of free channels which Virgin had previously not provided. I seem to remember that they also put duplicate versions of some random, supposedly similar, channels on the old UKTV EPG slots. It was a mess but not something they could really repeat with this situation.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

Funny how most of the channels added after the UKTV dispute didn't stick around for very long. Didn't Virgin also add Quest HD or something before its official public launch and had to take it off until the official launch date? It seemed to be very chaotic.

MTV consolidation makes sense. With global interest in such channels in decline there's no real reason to run multiple different versions for each international market.

As for Meets the Babes closing, good! Can it also take Babenation/Babestation with it please?
