Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Zee TV HD started on VM on 4/9/18 after being a Sky exclusive since 5/3/18.

Bizasia say that, as well as &TV, Living Foodz and Zing closing, Zee TV HD would also be closing on Sky and VM. It was removed from Sky the other day, but was returned the day after and has been available on VM throughout, so I don't know what they are actually doing!

The work experience person probably pressed the wrong button...

As I understand it &TV, Living Foodz and Zing are going App-Only...or their content is. Some of their content is moving to remaining Zee channels I believe.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Sky Atlantic VIP is closing on Sky on 12/6/19.

Either this attempt at retaining customer loyalty has failed, or they are possibly streamlining things in preparation for distributing the channel to third parties. Maybe this is one of the linear channels that Sky said that they were closing?

Confrimed: Zee HD closes on Virgin Media UK.

Zee TV HD has close on CO75 and Zee TV has launch in MPEG4 on CO29.

Viewers can view Zee TV if they have Asian Mela.

---------- Post added at 18:12 ---------- Previous post was at 18:03 ----------

Also TiVo has confirm that Virgin Media Viewers with V6 boxes will get access to Desi App Pack from June 5th to July 4th.

V6 viewers will just need to press red on Channel 800 from June 5th to view it.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Have the UKTV Channels take over gone through yet? Is anything actually going to change except the owners and possibly more bbc footage? Why did discovery keep the 3 weaker channels...seems a bit odd.

Also i have to question why BBC 3 closed down if the bbc can afford 100+ million on UKtv channels

The UKTV takeover will happen by Summer 2019 - within the next month or so.

BBC is NOT takeover UKTV it BBC Studios (The spin-off of The BBC to sell BBC programme and own BBC Channels out side the UK.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_Studios

We may see UKTV moving to new channels numbers when it happen.

We feel Discovery may axe some channels as they will own

Discovery Channel
Animal Planet
Discovery History
Discovery Home & Health
Discovery Science
Discovery Shed
Discovery Turbo
DMAX
Investigation Discovery
Quest
Quest Red
TLC
Food Network
Travel Channel
Good Food
Home
Really

And that before all the +1 Channels and HD Channels.

Indeed, but ultimately its parent and ownership is the publicly funded BBC.

I feel that:
Really will be folded into Quest Red and TLC.
Home and Discovery Shed will both merge together to form HGTV UK
Good Food and Food Network will begin sharing shows as well as seeing more US imports from the Cooking Channel, FN’s American sister channel.
