Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Saved shows will still be there on the 360 box(es).

I'd expect that any existing planned recordings on the 360 on BBC One HD will just not record until it's cancelled and set up again.

D+ showed the Summer Olympics FOC charge through their app for subscribers, you didn't need the sports sub.

Doesn't look like it'll be free without the sports addon this time.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Looking ahead in the on-screen guide on my 360 box(es) I have noticed that BBC One HD now displays the regional news programmes in HD from 17th January onwards. Area 21, London. Hooray.

Part of the Government's "levelling up" approach...

Force a V6 callback and look again one it has loaded - seems to be 'This is BBC One HD' now all next week.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

First new BBC3 transmissions are appearing Off-EPG on one of the TV platforms, not clear which, maybe multiple platforms. Preview loop with apparent idents. Screengrabs on these tweets.

Probably more a case of people seeing an error on the EPG and jumping the gun to announce the launch of the BBC One HD regions. Meanwhile, the new regional service IDs for BBC One HD (England) are now active. Time to update favourites and series links etc for the new services. Similarly, BBC One South East (SD) on channel 858 has been split into 2 new service IDs, so will also require an update to favourites / series links etc.
