Which is why Sky acquired 412....for EPG reshuffle of their channels.

Sky Sports Arena is showing Swansea City v Leeds United on 13th February for example.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

As this is a thread on Virgin TV, I wouldn't know about satellite numbers. The article clearly states two new channel numbers for cable.

The Sky Sports Tennis channel will also be available on Virgin Media.

Virgin customers can find Sky Sports Tennis HD on channel 520 and Sky Sports Tennis SD on channel 537.
I think Virgin Media will move Sky Sports Tennis again at the later date.

Indeed. It would add value to the app and be a relatively cheap way of distributing channels which are also relatively cheap to playout. Exactly what Paramount has done by adding MTV channels to their Pluto app. So, it raises a question why Channel 4 hasn't done this with the existing Box channels. I wonder if it might have something to do with the Bauer branding. It might be better to launch fresh, new channels without the cost burden of brand licensing. It will be interesting to see the eventual outcome.

It would be difficult to extend the existing range of Sky Sports channels without clashing with the Eurosport channel range. Then it becomes an issue if one broadcaster has their channels demoted to add a competitor's channel. Moving out Sky Sports News HD or Sky Sports Racing HD to 537, with a minor reshuffle of existing Sky Sports channels, could give a tidier layout, assuming Sky are happy with that. Otherwise, it will just have to wait until Virgin decides to do an EPG clean-up and reshuffle for the Sport genre.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

A load of new channels have been added to my Stream box - far too many for me to check individually right now. But at quick glance, entertainment, +1s, movies, music etc. So presumably all the ones that had subscription codes added recently.

The Sky Sports UHD channels are also listed, though not currently available to subscribe to through the Subscriptions app.

I've had another quick look. It seems pretty much every channel on 360 is now on Stream - except for: Sky Sports SD, MUTV, LFCTV and the non-BBC radio stations. Haven't been able to check the adult channels.

It looks like Stream could be being geared up to become VM's primary TV offering, especially given the XGS-PON rollout. Now, it just needs some cloud recording!
