-Virgin Media and O2 being merge as Virgin Media O2
-Warner Media and Discovery being merge as Warner Bros Discovery.

It probably got messed up when Virgin removed the regional version and redirected 101 to use the same video / audio streams as the version on channel 864.
My best guess

I'm not surprised they kept it registered as a subsidiary as they wound it down.

Hmmm! stretching the facts there a bit, lets say they sold Flextech.


But, in an attempt to connect these events, Aurelius did buy Sit Up TV from Virgin. And we all know how that ended...

Just the random "placeholder" slates normally seen on inactive transport streams. The Eurosport placeholders will probably join Eurosport 6 out of the visible range eventually leaving the current slates without a a service label.


There is no point in mentioning "Peterborough", that field on DBR cable scans is never correct. Typical of the way most tuner "drivers" incorrectly read NIT data when multiple networks are present.

Just letting everyone know as DBR was reporting on Tuesday Morning at Eurosport UHD and Eurosport 3 HD stop broadcasting on Monday Night at 8.05pm. That all.

That's fair enough. You also stated that
Quote:

which isn't really correct. As far as "Peterborough" goes, I was pointing out that it is just a quirk of the way tuner drivers work, so there is no need for you to report that. Of course, if you prefer to report it as it is shown on DBR (regardless of accuracy), that is your choice.

Look like both Nat Geo Wild and National Geographic will NOT close in 2022 after all.

All Nat Geo rumour sources was started by someone posting on DS Forum. All I got from my sources was "may close by" but no closing down date was ever given by my sources.

Why would he drop his sources for?
In the world of tv/streaming/tech etc things move very fast you could get some information one day then the next week a new deal has been agreed which means that info changes.
My old job we were constantly having to change documents etc because of how fast things kept changing.
For example we had info stating ITV were launching a UHD channel everything was in place, then 3 weeks later ITV decided not to bother due to costs.
It's not as staight forward as some people think (not aimed at you btw).
