Beat me to it.

Interestingly it says not to worry about Series Links. Previously, to my recollection, this wasn't the case in these type of circumstances. So have VM worked out how to amalgamate them?

Not my experience. When BBC 1 HD moved from 108 to 101 in Scotland, all my series were correctly migrated.

First post!

Well I had series links on both copies of Crime + Investigation HD. A couple of weeks ago they swapped around and then when the one of 274 disappeared the series link moved to 222 so I wonder if there is now a way to amalgamate them

Let's hope so.

truTV will be closed after today and will be replaced by a channel called 'True Crime'.

I hadn't heard Sony were bringing back True Crime, it was only February last year it was renamed Sony Crime 2 and then Sony Crime 2 was axed in November.

I hadn't noticed that, but I won't be sorry to see the back of TruTV. The schedules were very poor and unimaginative. The new channel is an improvement certainly, but still not one that I would watch.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Uising Series Link+ means they are not fixed to a channel - so channel renames, moves and even closures do NOT break them.

A series Link to a channel will break if the channel is removed.

But don't you have Now TV, Amazon and Netflix for your TV viewing.

Generally my Series Links haven't been set to All, so I've never assumed, especially as VM have indicated us to manually change links in the past. If I've known about a channel change I've often changed it to All in advance, but most of mine are set to specific channels by default.

As you know, I subscribe to all of them and also to the pay tv channels. If Amazon was included I would be able to search and playback my selected programmes from just one box. Without this, and a speedy uptake of new streaming services such as Disney + as they come along, I cannot see myself continuing with the pay tv channels for much longer as they are getting to the stage where they are no longer good value for money.

Only my wife prevents me from doing that now as she is frightened to death about accessing different inputs on the TV without me being there!

You’re in danger of offering evidence against the death of linear TV with your technophobe wife.

Essentially here you are accepting that the convenience that Virgin (and Sky) offer is worth something and that there’s a proportion of people who don’t want six or seven different subscriptions to different services accessible via different apps/sticks.

Not much chance of Amazon coming and even less chance of Disney coming l suspect.

I don't see how you make that out. I am on record as saying that in the future, pay tv channels will die off and instead we will have bundles of streaming services offered by the likes of VM.

If we had that in place now, we wouldn't need Rokus and Fire sticks any more and my wife would cope because access would be through the V6.

We will get both eventually, but as you know, Virgin likes to take its time with this sort of thing.

A happy exception will be the Smithsonian channel, due to launch, even on VM, tomorrow!
