Thanks for that. I went in early last week and asked to pause Sky Sports (only option). Got notification yesterday that they had, and billed today with the credit. I’ve just gone back and reapplied for both to be paused.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2020)

April version of the Channel Guide PDF added yesterday...

https://www.virginmedia.com/virgin-t...-channel-guide

Desktop PDF:
https://www.virginmedia.com/content/..._April2020.pdf

Mobile PDF:
https://www.virginmedia.com/content/..._April2020.pdf

Yep, it still has Amazon Prime Video listed on the incorrect channel number!

In addition to this, the package information is now incorrect for Comedy Central HD and MTV HD, which are now included in Mix and Fun too (so should have a tick in columns 2 and 3).

And Sony Crime on 193 is still missing.

According to JJ20X on Forum Box override flags have been added to a few channels, their +1s and HD versions not listed above.

So there are likes of W HD , W+1, E4 HD, TCM HD available too. I'm not going to list them, I suggest people on lower packages scroll through the EPG and see how many aren't greyed out that normally are.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2020)

I'm on the Mix TV package and so I seem to have gained:

E4 HD
More4 HD
FOX HD
Discovery HD
Discovery +1
Box Hits
Kerrang
TCM HD

No email from VM. Is it coronavirus related? Do we know how long we will have the extra channels available to us?

Until May 2nd for the ones I mentioned in the list of 18 above. No idea for the others as they weren't in the email, they were found via JJ20X on Forum Box.

They have had override flags applied, rather than tier changes, so they are temporarily available to a wider number of customers.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2020)

VM has updated the EPG and TV Control app with Sky's refreshed channel logos.

They've missed out the HD version on Sky Comedy, but except that it's now much cleaner and more consistent.

It looks like this channel will continue for the foreseeable future, alongside the new Sky Nature and Documentaries channels.

Sky Comedy HD fixed now, and VM have also updated all the BBC logos.

I noticed this this morning, then, as I was about to post regarding it, I thought "is it new?" as it's just the sort of thing I don't tend notice immediately as I turn the logos off on the EPG.

All the TV channels will be available to everyone soon!

Virgin Media has also launched Entertainment Picks for Mixit TV customers.

I'm not sure renaming Personal Picks to Entertainment Picks qualifies as a 'launch'. 😂

Has someone checked on Virgin media to make sure they're ok?
