Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Can anyone with Mix TV confirm that they can watch programmes on Discovery and Animal Planet with a 1 hour time delay (using +1) on their package, but not at the original time of broadcast (using HD) because the main feed is not available in SD. An interesting quirk of VM if the Channel Guide PDF is to be believed.

What's VM only having the HD version of the main channel got to do with it?

What's the channel guide PDF showing?

Wait! You believe the PDF Guide?

HD versions should also be Mix per the subscription codes.

Makes you wonder why that would be allowed by ofcom
Especially when the slot used to be BBC News HD, I know slot allocation is different on Virgin to the rules for Sky and Freesat EPGs

Do you think they have acquired the a lot from BBC, though I would have thought they would have shuffled BBC Parliament up one spot.

Really don't understand why people get so stressed over slot allocation . do people really look and give up if it's too far down a list Me have all the channels I look at in favourites , you may suggest l am missing something , but never at a loss to watch something , so don't care if I did, if you ain't seen it you won't miss it

I am certainly not stressed about it, further up is more prominent so I can see their point in wanting to be up there with BBC & Sky, but any channels that I do watch I know the number off by heart and usually have it on my favourites or indeed just speak into the remote.

Thanks!

So it's just the Channel Guide PDF being wrong, yet again, lol.

I thought it seemed pretty odd.

BT Sport channels was own by BT Communications

From last Monday when "BT Sport powered by EE" appeared on BT Sport before every ad break BT Sport is own by BT Ninety-Five Limited who is in own 100% by BT Communications.

I think BT will now "sell" 50% of it shares in BT Ninety-Five Limited to Warner Bros Discovery in a coming weeks to get the joint venture started.

Yes it's 50/50 Joint Venture for now, although the new management and delivery of the Joint Venture will be led by President and Managing Director of WBD Sports Europe

V6 has updated software after I had to do a reboot. Anyone know what this is about?
