Has Virgin Media sign an new deal with Sky?

We have found that WWE Fastlane is only broadcast on TiVo or V6 boxes this weekend.

And is not broadcasting on V+ HD Boxes.
Didn't think that there were any V+ HD boxes left on the network?

Has anyone found that their EPG has changed colour? Mine hasn't, but i've been reading that others peoples have- perhaps it's an update that's being rolled out?

Yes it is. The logo has yet to change but look at the name and a marked improvement in picture quality. EPG 552

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Was looking through the digitalbitrate page for the VM multiplexes again and I think I'm starting to understand the tables.

Assuming I am, it seems that VM have just switched over quite a large number of MPEG2 SD channels to MPEG4, the MPEG2 placeholders are still there on those multiplexes but there is no data on them. I looked at one of them on my box in the diagnostics area and it is seems to comfirm it has switched over (it was C5 SD if you were wondering).

These changes are since the last time I looked at the table. If I am judging the progress correctly VM are likely to manage switch over pretty rapidly, I didn't think they'd do so many simultaneously prior to seeing this.

Of course I may be reading it all wrong, I'm no expert.

Probably they've accidentally enabled the high-contrast menu setting.

They just need to fix the logos in the EPG now, as they are still:

Premier Sports HD
Premier Sports 2

Update

WWE Fastlane IS broadcasting on V+ Boxes (We try to order last night)

And it look like Virgin Media are also broadcasting WWE Fastline in HD only on TiVo or V6 boxes.

We got mix up due to the wording on V+ Boxes on Channel 0.

We can confrim that Premier Sports 2 was broadcasting last night on V+ Boxes on Channel 0 for about 10mins with no EPG name.

The PPV Channel reappeared again by 9am today.

"Available in HD on TiVo and V6 boxes only"

Not watching it myself but it certainly takes the biscuit that they are charging a fair bit for that event and its not even in HD.
