UKTV catch-up content

What UKTV catch-up content are we supposed to get on Virgin Media?

I'm pretty sure Yesterday is on the UKTV Play app (last time I looked on my Roku) but I can't see a folder for them on my V6, or content via a search.

Prior to the dispute between Virgin Media and UKTV we used to have access to Catch Up and On Demand programmes from all UKTV channels, including Yesterday, Good Food, Eden and Home.

After a delay, programmes from W, Gold, Dave, Alibi, Drama and Really all returned, but Yesterday, Good Food, Eden and Home are still missing.

I can only assume that Virgin Media stopped paying UKTV for this content.

Although I thought VM said that under the deal, we would be getting increased content from UKTV.

Its easy to say that though as its a bit like a politician saying something knowing full well what they said would probably not come to fruition.

Re: UKTV catch-up content

I remember reading an article about the BBC buying the majority of UKTV and Discovery retaining the 3 channels you mentioned so i wonder if it's something to do with that?

Maybe the on demand content for those channels will be agreed when it finally happens?

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/b...plit-ccg2k52xc

Under the plans they would break up UKTV. BBC would take about 60 per cent, including entertainment channels such as Dave, Gold and Drama, according to sources. Discovery, which owns Eurosport and holds the European rights to the Olympic Games, would end up with lifestyle channels such as Good Food and Home.

It doesn't mention Eden in this article but i'm sure i read it in another.

Re: UKTV catch-up content

The article I read recently said Discovery would end up with Good Food, Home and Really according to what they heard was the current thinking.

Given BBC and Discovery are apparently talking about setting up a Nature Show Netflix-esque service with BBC giving international VOD rights of some sort to Discovery whilst BBC has UK ones, that would suggest there is no point in Discovery getting Eden.
