Rumours are coming in at Media Boy HQ that Sky Atlantic may grace our screens this summer.

As part of the new deal, we may also get Sky's UHD programming as part of any deal.

ęcopyright 2019 Media Boy 2006 - 2019. An ''Keep it real and free'' Production.

Media Boy HQ has put this post down as "Rumour" until we see reports of any new Sky branded channel testing on Virgin Media UK.
It'll be interesting to see how Comcast and VM get on.

For those who like trivia, Comcast incorporates what was John Malone's cable co, TCI, which he originally sold to AT&T before Comcast took it on. Comcast and Malone have a good working relationship up to now, so lets see if that continues!

We also think Disney will axe FOX brand in UK and rebrand FOX as ABC.
As I'm sure you're aware, the breakup of UKTV is imminent now (weeks, rather than months) so Discovery gets control of Home, Really and Good Food while the Beeb gets the rest, so I agree that changes with those channels seem likely.

I agree about your view on FOX and to add one of my own, I think we'll get all the major US networks soon. They'll already here, just under different names at the moment:

Sky One -> NBC
Ch5 -> CBS
FOX -> ABC

Skysports on screen logo no longer says HD on the HD versions. Maybe Skysports SD channels are off soon.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2019)

So, how do we reckon the EPG will look over the coming months once the changes have all happened?

It looks like all the SD channels will get dropped if there is a HD equivalent with a +1 channel right next to the main HD channel and the 200s section is being reorganised back into a proper lifestyle and factual section again, or is it? VM placing their ultra HD ch on 205 seems to mess things up somewhat.

We feel with Virgin Media Ultra HD being added to Channel 205 under a Entertainment section.

Virgin Media may start to broadcast Ultra HD other things like Movies and Live Sports on Channel 999.

I have be given tonight an DNP order.
