Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Based on Digiguide, Looks like CBS Justice becomes Horror Channel from 30th June ,with the existing Horror Channel becoming Horror Xtra and starts broadcasting daily at 5pm and the +1 starting at 6pm

Forces TV closes on 30th June

Wasn't expecting Forces TV to close entirely, just on Freeview, but that's certainly how it reads.

If that actually happens it makes the recent EPG channel swap on Freeview seem rather odd.

I bet this has to do with Paramount+'s imminent launch. No doubt they'll want to use the CBS brand and free up some shows for Paramount+.

But here in UK Paramount only own 50% of CBS brand and Horror Channel.

AMC own the other 50%.

Based on Digiguide,

It look like Horror Channel will be on Virgin Channel 192 from 30th June, with Horror Xtra broadcasting on Virgin Channel 148.

You can access the UK service by downloading the international (non US) app , although It occasionally comes up with error messages

There is no CBS branding, not even a CBS logo on the small amount of Paramount owned CBS shows that are available on it.

On the back of yesterday's news at Forces TV UK is set to close on June 30th I have been thinking that Talking Pictures may make a bid for Forces TV in a coming days to keep Forces TV on Sky, Freesat and Virgin with a later rebrand to Talking Entertainment that would keep Talking Pictures to broadcast Movies 24/7.

Not convinced their finances are up to buying anything, they barely managed to stay on Freeview during the first year of Covid because many of their advertisers were for things greatly affected, like cruise holidays. It was pretty widely reported at the time, as I recall.

Talking Pictures may pick up some of the rights to the old UK stuff - but can't see them going beyond that.

They won't, if they wanted to include shows they would just simply change talking pictures name, they don't have the finances to run another channel.
