All 3 mutated into other entities. One merged with Sky, 3D is making a bit of return with phone apps and VR headsets, and the ITV Digital monkey became a tea brand mascot.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

207 is a +1.

---------- Post added at 09:23 ---------- Previous post was at 08:29 ----------

I've been looking through my house's Favourites, and, as I suspected, the renumbering has make very little difference. Since we moved from Tivo to a V6, a while back now, roughly coincided with us pruning the +1s away so today's changes only made minor difference. Mostly it has grouped genres into logically similar genre groupings a little better, mostly in the Discovery part of the lifestyle category.

So although it looks big and complicated, today did very little. Though it needed done in my opinion.

I think the HD swaps from last week will change our viewing habits more as we didn't watch too much Discovery (250) or Animal Planet and previously waited for Discovery shows to appear on Quest HD. Certain channel's programming benefits more from HD than others. Not that that stops us watching SD, even genres that benefit from it, as likes of LoveNature SD gets regular viewing.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

We see that Virgin Media UK have started to reuse the Good Food +1 old SID it shown as Good Food +1 but the EPG has been saying since 4pm yesterday "Channel Off Air"

Lifetime and Blaze are to be swapped on Sky EPG. Possible this may happen on VM.

Well 5 MTV channels got moved down onto Mix tier and 2 to Fun tier on the 1st October when all the number changes happened.

I don't think that sort of action could have been done without some agreement being made. It's just not been made public.

Most agreements don't get made public unless they can't come to an agreement. It's usually just the Sky renewal that regularly gets announced.

Weird to have the SD and HD versions of Sky Arts so far apart given that they have tried to partner up the SD and HD variants of the other Sky channels. It would of been better to have:

110. Sky One
111. Sky Witness HD
112. Sky Witness
