They wouldn't even have to do that, they already show Shows these days, though heavily outnumbered by films.

If a shop that sat nearby another one that suddenly announced it was closing the one that was staying open would unlikely be able to just buy them out.

However they might start stocking some things that they didn’t use to, however Talking Pictures remit is of programmes a lot older than what ForcesTV was showing some of which I am sure are now public domain with no cost to them whereas buying something like Quantum Leap or the like would eat up their budget very very quickly.

Talking Pictures have found their niche and it works for them.

I wonder whether Paramount has had a say in the rebrands. They'll probably want to use the CBS brand for the Paramount+ platform.

Hmm.

That can't quite be right, they wouldn't have a HorrorXtra without Horror surely?

CBS Reality > Reality
CBS Drama > RealityXtra
Horror Channel > HorrorXtra
CBS Justice > Legend

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

While it doesn't make much sense it's possibly correct.

Digiguide itself says 'Legend Lowdown' on CBS Justice and horror channel says 'This is Horror Xtra' from 30th

It comes across like it's being done at short notice.

Seems to be very last minute as they are still advertising the La Liga channel on their website - bearing in mind not long ago it was coming off prime channels as well, which has since been changed due to the new agreement between Premier Sports and La Liga.

You could have simplified this by just sayin the SD Versions of these channels will be replaced with their HD version.

Bearing in mind those on 360 only have one version at the main number depending on their subs.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Another possibility the channels are no longer a joint venture with AMC Networks , perhaps they now solely run by AMC Networks or someone else.

When Sony sold their channels ,the Sony brand was removed , and Virgin 1 became Channel One after Sky bought VMTV
