I'm guessing it won't be the full Prime with the ability to carry channels that VM already carry?

We don't know yet, but I imagine it will be the full Prime service. After all, we won't be getting a price reduction to view the stripped out part of it, so that wouldn't work really.

I don't think VM is too bothered about the overlaps, given that their channels are bundled with others at a discounted price. I shouldn't think there would be a great take up of any duplicated channels on Amazon.

Although some material competes with the VM Store, you get that now with some Netflix content.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

We are now starting to think Virgin Media UK's deal with Sky may not be up this summer due to Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Arena both launching in July 2017 in the UK.

July 2017 saw other Sky Sports branded channels being moved to other channel numbers.

It look like Sky deal with Virgin Media UK may not be up for renewal until Summer of 2020 or 2021.

That was just a reorganisation of the sports channels by Sky though, wasn't it? I don't think that would have impacted on the deal in this way. Any more than the Sky Living channel name changing to Sky Witness.

But Sky did launch two new Sky Sports Channels (Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Arena) far as I know if Virgin Media UK has not signed an new deal with Sky their would not be allow to broadcast them on Virgin Media UK right now until their sign an new deal with it owner. All other Sky Sports Channels was rebranded from Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 2 and so on.

Is Sky Sports Racing HD on Virgin Media?

It seems someone is way off the mark with their predictions again.

I think the problem is believing these companies sit around like I do and phone up Vodafone after 11 months.

If something comes up of interest I’m sure both parties would negotiate at any time which is why the month of renewal of the “Sky Basics” channels has moved since their return, and Sky Sports 3/4 HD arrived at a different point too. We don’t know what the contracts say about additional or successor channels so it’s pure conjecture.
