Given they are moving away from the TV Movie content they were showing on True Movies/Christmas and to a lesser extent on Sony Movies Christmas to show films that got a cinema release, I wonder if they might launch a new channel using the space Sony Crime is on (but obviously a different EPG number in the film category) and cater for that market again.

Although the type of content Sony Movies Classic is more my type of thing there is an existing viewerbase for their previous type of content, especially FTA, as the closest is PayTV channels Movies24 and Movies24+.

They could call it Sony Movies Romance.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Media Boy Views: Will Fine Living launch in UK in 2020?

As Discovery is set on keeping Really on air - re not asking Virgin to give Quest HD Channel 128.

We have been on wikipedia to see what other broad that Discovery own outside the UK but broadcast the same idea of programmes as Really.

We see that Discovery own the broad called Fine Living.

This post is the views of Media Boy HQ.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Virgin Media confirms Amazon's Prime Video Premier League coverage will be available on the cable service next month, including selected games in 4K UHD

Not all matches are due to appear in UHD, but among those already confirmed are Burnley v Manchester City on 3rd December, Liverpool v Everton on 4th December and Arsenal v Brightonn on 5th December 2019.

David Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said: We are saving football fans the hassle this Christmas with our winning combination of ultrafast broadband connectivity and powerful 4K V6 box providing the best match-day experience for Amazon’s Prime Video Premier League fixtures. With all of the Premier League matches from Sky, BT Sport and Amazon Prime Video in one place, Virgin Media is top of the league for football on TV this festive season.

Excellent that some of the games are in 4K UHD and that one can access it through the Amazon Prime Video app on Virgin.

Dummie here

I have the Tivo box and a new Nano Cell LG 49" smart TV, will I be able to watch the Amazon Prime PL football on Virgin Media just by pointing my smart remote and highlightling the Amazon app on the screen?

I do understand that only certain Amazon PL games are 4K. TIA

You should be able to watch using the built in app on your TV or V6 box.
You will need to have an active Amazon Prime subscription and be signed in on either or both devices.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

I've seen a document about changes in 2020:

-The Horizon software should start rolling out by second quarter.
-Revamp of Virgin Media Movie Store.
-Comcast are thinking about launching more UHD content for their channels

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

TBN UK: No room at the inn for TBN on Virgin Media.

TBN UK has reveal the following today on Twitter:

Quote:
We’ve been in discussion with Virgin Media. Despite our best efforts, Virgin continue to say they have no room for TBN UK, on their main platform.
https://twitter.com/TBNUKtv/status/1199009856897703936

But JJ20X is reporting on Forumbox that up to FOUR Channels may launch soon on Virgin Media.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

Possible translation: TBN UK can't afford full carriage on Freeview anymore (as per their recent announcement of a Freeview change), so have opted for a cheaper DTT distribution (a HD-tuner-only multiplex) and are spinning it, when asked, that the only reason they aren't on VM is no room, when it's more likely VM don't want to pay for a poorly performing channel.

Obviously this is just a guess on my part.

Think the last time a decent new channel came to Virgin Den was in flared trousers
