Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

I hear that Sky Sports Main Event Ultra HDR has today launched as a standalone (i.e. not red button) channel on Sky. You know what's coming... does anyone know when will this channel be on VM V6?

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

I am hearing that BT Sport is set to change it name to Discovery Sports once Warner Bros. Discovery joint venture with BT Group is completed.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

Several programmes on Eurosport are already using 'Discovery Sport' captions and banners.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2022)

BBC3 & BBC4 failed to start at 7pm this evening, thus messing up the recordings I had of them as they started late.

No idea if this was down to the BBC or another Virgin cock up. I suspect a Virgin cock up as one of their (box generated?) 'This channel is currently unavailable' messages came up at the bottom.

BBC Three and BBC Four fail to appear all night last night.

The two BBC kids channels appear at 5.30am.
