Should more radio stations appear on Virgin Media?

Radio stations have always been part of the cable TV offering yet there have been no new radio stations added to VM for many years. Should they add some new ones and if so, which?

I'd start by saying that in addition to Absolute 80s, they should add more of the Absolute decades stations plus Greatest Hits Radio and Scala Radio.

No - it is a TV service.

I have been told that Bauer Radio's Greatest Hits Radio is set to launch soon on Virgin UK Channel 941.

If you want radio channels on Virgin Media's TiVo only the ones broadcasting on Freeview or Sky will appear.

Yes but it's always carried radio stations and BBC Sounds is available to customers who also have a V6/360 box. Plus Freeview, Freesat and Sky TV include radio stations in their channel line-ups.

Re: Should more radio stations appear on Virgin Media?

To listen to football on the national radio networks - many people only have the choice of satellite or cable.

Football (and sometimes other sport) is often blocked on streams and MW reception can be out-of-range.
