Re: Virgin Media Changelog

And probably obviously Channel One OD content has now gone too, actually it may have gone sooner.

If any of the Channel One content begins to reappear on Sky channels will it become available on OD? Hmm, I suspect not, unless maybe it ends up on Sky Living or one of its siblings. Or, are we likely to lose the (Sky) Living OD content soon too?

What happened with the re-brand switch-over? It seemed as though the Living channels went off air for several hours from midnight (I'm guessing 00:00 to 06:00 but I didn't take accurate timings). I had been planning on watching CSI and maybe Criminal Minds.

The Living and Challenge Channels was off air for two hours on Monday night starting at 2am.

DS Forum think Sky was moving everything you need to broadcast from the old Virgin Media Television HQ into the BSkyB Broadcasting HQ.

Re: Virgin Media Changelog

We noticed some existing series links didn't work after 1 February either on ex VMtv channels but that's been sorted now. We had to delete the old one and set it up again but some series links didn't reappear until Wednesday. It's seems fine now though.

The SD PQ is definitely lower on Sky Living and Challenge now though as was reported by Sky users on DS. They are much the same as Sky 1 now, smudgey!

Unhappy Re: Virgin Media Changelog

Whoopee! There's real progress!

Surely even Richard Desmond is answerable to the board of Northern & Shell and they can't all have thought that this change was a worthwhile investment.

I notice that the website remains as www.five.tv for now.

With Skys present contempt for their Virgin customers I would say they will definately not be providing VOD in the future.

Yeah they put channel5.com on the adverts but it just redirects to five.tv. I reckon they'll fully change the domain once Fiver and Five USA have been re-branded
