Re: Virgin TV (2024)

Virgin has given Sky Sports Tennis provisional channels numbers ahead of launch:

Sky Sports Tennis - Provisionally added to channel 537.*
Sky Sports Tennis HD - Provisionally added to channel 520.*

*Channels are NOT on any boxes.

https://ukcabletvchanges.blogspot.com/

With Sky Sports Tennis launch how will Virgin Media fit all Sky Sports Channels together?

Here is my own views: https://mediaboyukblog.blogspot.com/...where-sky.html

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

Channel 4 will close "smaller linear channels" including the Box music channels later this year and others at the right time.

The website shut down in October so not surprising

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

The Box always seemed like a popular channel.

I still think it's weird that none of those music channels have ever gone HD.

It was a strange move at a time when MTV, NOW, TRACE channels etc were moving from traditional linear channels to FAST channels, Channel 4 decided to kill of the streamed versions of their channels. With no presentation and running multiple channels from a single computer server, the channels must be as cheap as chips to run. An odd direction to take for an organisation planning to become a "digital first public service streamer".

They could add music FAST channels to Channel 4 app though & other platforms

They launched their first FAST channel in the UK in December

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

So Sky Sports Tennis is just a rebrand then and not a new channel. As I thought it would be.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

Sky already has sky sports NFL and sky sports arena on the channel numbers they give on their own website. 407 and 408.
