Re: Virgin Media & UKTV+ITV Channels

I see Dave HD and Gold HD are now in the Mix package - does that mean there's no longer a need for Gold SD to be carried on the platform?
It's an interesting development as it could signify a strategy-change away from putting HD channels in Full House. Time will tell.

Another snippet here..

http://www.digitalspy.com/tv/news/a8...ficially-back/

Quote:
UKTV is jointly owned by the BBC, which holds back video on demand rights to its programming as it instead sells them to services such as Netflix, and Virgin Media has also confirmed today (August 11) that discussions are ongoing directly with BBC Studios to explore bringing full BBC boxsets to Virgin TV.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2018)

Well VM took a big risk but by getting 5x times the on demand content plus GOLD HD and DAVE HD on Mix I think most people (including me who was seriously cosidering moving elsewhere) that VM have played this well.

It might show other broadcasters that VM are no pushover.

Well, I'm certainly pleased for those of you who watched these channels. It will make no difference to my personal viewing habits, though.

Probably neither. Mutually agreeable solution.

Indeed, it will. I'd love to see full details of the deal, though!
