Re: Virgin Media & UKTV+ITV Channels

I wonder if that's because people were wanting to see what the fuss was about on those channels.

Interesting, I wonder if this is what the senior engineer was referring to when I had my V6 installed after I asked if there was anything similar to Sky Q where people could watch channels away from the main TV.

When I joined virgin (19 months ago) I was told I would be able to download recordings from my v6 boxes to my iPad and watch them whilst away from the house - this has never worked.

Re: Virgin Media & UKTV+ITV Channels

Virgin Media adds new TV channels to its Player broadband bundles.

Quote:
This addition follows the loss of channels after dealings between Virgin Media and UKTV (half BBC owned) went south. That means favourites like Dave, Gold and Eden are no longer available on Virgin TV. So shows like Only Fools and Horses, Planet Earth and Red Dwarf won't be there to watch for Virgin Media customers.

Those are interesting statistics. I thought that they would have gone down with their removal from VM, at best stayed static as people took action to regain the channels, but I never expected them to go up!

Home always was one of their channels which attracted the fewest of their viewers, which is probably why they made it FTA and put it into Freeview.

Well don't, I made it perfectly clear what I was replying to, if you don't want to talk about it then don't comment on what I was replying to.

One of my options under consideration is to downgrade to this bundle, so it's good to learn that I will be losing even less from cancelling Full House.

It has been noted that the majority of your forum posts over the past few days have been soley directed towards me as an individual. They have all been negative and in one incident you insinuated that I was a liar.

In one thread where you also took the thread off topic, Maggy had to post a warning as a result. I suggest that going forward you discuss topics in an objective manner as opposed to making things personal.

I'll repeat, I made it perfectly clear what I wanted to talk about which was a direct reply to what you posted. If you don't want to talk about it either don't post it or don't reply. End off. Ball is in your court if you want to create further off topic posts.

Re: Virgin Media & UKTV+ITV Channels

Thanks for providing this data.

Apparently, Liberty Global results are due out tomorrow. I'm hoping that this might give some indication of the affect that the removal of the UKTV channels has had on VM.

As l say its hurting them more then it is hitting Virgin as Virgin have the ability to lessen the impact through several available options open to them where UKTV's options are pretty limited IMO.

The stats you have produced for 16-22 July are the ones Gavin showed as being for 23-29 July and vice versa. Which is correct?

Someone has their dates muddled.
