Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

According to JJ20X on Forum Box there are 4 new channels on the network.
https://www.forumbox.co.uk/forum/thr...9101#post89101

2 SD and 2 HD. They just have names like Channel A SD, Channel B SD, etc, so not much to go on.

Probably Sky Documentaries and Sky Nature in SD and HD variations, but you never know, that's just my guess.

As they carry the Sky1 & Sky2 flags and genre flag 1 (Documentaries) I think that's fairly certain!

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

The BBC Sounds TV app will be rolling out from today on Virgin Media devices and YouView devices, including some Sony TVs, and is coming to some Samsung TVs later this week, plus many more connected TVs and devices in the coming weeks and months.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

Could this be the start of the 100's of apps promised many years ago?
No? I don't think so either

Perhaps OB can answer that.

On the negative side, we won't get Disney+

Sky has confirmed:

We’ve partnered with Disney to be the only pay-TV provider to offer Disney+ on their platform.

Great stuff, I paid for a year and hoped the app would be on V6 shortly after launch, thinking Disney would want to make it available as possible. Guess its Roku and Chromecast for me then.

I wouldn't take too much notice of that. As at today, the statement is correct because VM is still negotiating with Disney. There is nothing in Sky's agreement with Disney that prevents this from happening.

I'm sure it will launch soon, jobbie, be patient.

In the meantime yes, it's on Roku, Amazon Prime and Chromecast as well as some specified smart tvs and YouView.

I think the term "exclusive to SKY" might be a clue.

Where do they say it's exclusive?

Not in the press release that it is:

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

Yup, but still doesn't stay exclusive which most providers will use if it is that.
