Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

Look like La Liga TV will launch tomorrow (January 13th) after all Media Boy HQ has just found that Virgin Media are testing the EPG up until 0.01am tonight with "Coming Soon".

We feel La Liga TV will launch just after midnight on Virgin UK Channel 554.

I see that Virgin Media IS still using 5Spike old slot on CO31 - But is broadcasting Paramount Network.

I am starting to think Virgin Media will start using 5Spike for Paramount Network +1 and it will launch on the rumoured January 27th launch date on Virgin Channel 188.

Premier Sports tweeted about it launching on Sky today and in response to someone asking "what about Virgin Media?" the Premier Sports representative said "we hope to have more information for Virgin TV customers later in the week".

Not appearing on my v6 boxes.

Also that link says it is a premium channel, however I was under the impression it was free for the first 2 weeks?

I am able to view LaLigaTV on my sky box (minimal sub)

Why is Virgin always lagging behind?

Not heard a brass farthing but we are only in January and if my deteriorating memory serves me right things tend not to arrive too much in the dark bleak winter month of January.

At time of posting our TiVo EPG has got listings for Universal Channel for upto January 29th.

Look like Sky Comedy will launch about February 4th but Universal Channel is set to close on BT Vision from January 27th.

I am starting to think Virgin Media will start using 5Spike for Paramount Network +1 and it will launch on the rumoured January 27th launch date on Virgin Channel 188.

Update: DBR is reporting that Virgin Media is broadcasting nothing on 5Spike old stream slot.

So maybe I was right about Paramount Network +1 maybe set to launch on January 27th (Rumoured date) on Virgin UK Channel 188 after all. See post 109.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

No new series which would normally have appeared on Universal are there eg Chicago Med, Law & Order SVU. The channel is in a winding down pattern. Digiguide is showing programme listings for Sky Comedy from midday of 27th Jan. It is also showing programmes for Universal at that time.
