I've noticed that too. Back when I had TiVo and V6 it was a regular chore to re-add channels to my favourites list. I have never needed to do that since moving over to 360.

More news as I get it.
It is not really new, it is deactivated when not in use which makes it disappear from digitalbitrate. New tests have been added on 1405 & 1406 on internal networks. 11 new duplicate services have been added to TS30 but not added to any networks. TS30 was taken out of general use some time ago and these new duplicates are probably some sort of internal test.

So maybe TuneAway HD Hidden will become MTV Pride.
That sounds reasonable.

A bonus of using an online EPG rather than using SDT data.

I know that TS30 has 11 things on it but no other SID has 11 channels on it - maybe Virgin are set to launch up to 11 new channels.

But 14XX is for pop up channels (for up to 48hours) and Pay Per Views channels.

TS30 isn't visible on digitalbitrate it would have been C 051 before it was removed. TS 514 is also used for tests on some internal networks and 1405 & 1406 originally looked similar to an existing test on 1404. They won't be new channels, the TS30 channels are duplicates of BBC channels, More 4 variations and thinks like Sky News. Not a preparation for housekeeping either, the channels on TS30 have a new service type, not "digital television service".

I'm really happy to see the match, I was going to miss it otherwise, but if Channel 4 have paid as much as rumoured it doesn't sound worth it for approx 3 hours. And they're possibly also paying to give free advertising to Amazon, there could be a small Prime Video logo somewhere in the on-screen graphics.

It's worth it if they can recoup it with advertising revenue. Clearly, this is going to be a well-watched programme tonight.

Not in this house, though!

Well there's massive Prime Video logos everywhere, so they've basically paid to promote a rival. Short term gain for long term loss.

I wonder who exactly they are giving it to, the LTA is loaded already. They'd be better giving it to a different organisation.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2021)

Well done C4 for showing the tennis - the coverage on Amazon Prime has been excellent throughout the tournament. Just a pity they can't cut the bits showing Djokovic !!

---------- Post added at 10:30 ---------- Previous post was at 10:29 ----------

On CS my experience is a bit variable - sometimes excellent, sometimes dreadful. Is there a good day and/or time of day to call them ?
