I posted this yesterday morning on the sport thread. I can't think what it would be though, and no-one else suggested anything. Any ideas?

Re: Channels switched to MPEG4

I did not see your post from when I saw it today I want to this thread.

I think Virgin Media UK are maybe set to launch an UHD Stream on CO52.

As Virgin TV Ultra UHD sits beside Red Button and Radio Channels on CO68.
And BT Sport 4K UHD also sits beside Red Button and Radio Channels on CO73.

Another UHD stream? I wonder what that would be?

Virgin Media do NOT have an UHD Stream. All UHD Channels sits beside Radio or Red Button Channels over two streams.

As far as I know Virgin are broadcasting two Virgin TV Ultra HD Channels on CO68:

-Virgin TV Ultra HD (Old) (SID 2102)
-Virgin TV Ultra HD (New) (SID 2104)

Also an new channel has appeared on C073

Channel is called Pure Babes HD (SID 2207) and still broadcasting in MPEG2.
BT Sport Hidden has previously been a stream for channel 100, so my guess is that these are for the Champions League and Europa Cup finals.

I put the slow down in changes down to the large number of pixelisation complaints that got reported a few weeks ago. VM probably wanted to halt MPEG4 switches while they investigated and fixed. Not necessarily because they were related.
