I only pay £2.99 for SKY Cinema via NOWTV, i have no need for entertainment yet as i'm getting SKYs signature pack for £15p/m.
Sports i get via VPN and USA services.

I got this too but at £1.80, I feel robbed compared to your £1.60

I got some Now TV vouchers with my Clubcard points so hasn't even cost me anything so far, just the money I give to Tesco anyway.

Mine is up next month, I wonder if I'll get the same again

Wait till a week or so before it's up mate, I'm sure they will contact you with a similar offer.

...and select the reason for cancelling as 'I can't afford it'.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2020)

It is a part of that pack on Sky - has been for some time.

Premier have now got the Impact Wrestling rights and some will be on BoxNation. There is a live event next weekend on PS1.

It’s now operated by Premier Sport but due to previous contracts remains part of BT Sport pack on sky and BT. As well as premier pack on Sky and online.

Yet hasn’t been added till now to Virgin as a part of the Premier Sports pack
But it is showing Gaelic football (on a boxing channel - you did read that right) so might be only temporary but communication isnt Virgin or Premiers strong point,

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2020)

I think Virgin has sign an new deal with Premier Sports. I think Premier 1st appeared on Vigin in October 2014ish. Can anyone who pays for Boxnation on it own tell me if they can now see Premier Sports Channels on your telly (from Channels 551 to 554)?

The last deal may have been around when Freesports arrived, or soon after it switch to HD, there wasn't long between those as I recall.

They seem quite confident on Britbox gaining traction based on Spitting Image

It has 7 more episodes to go this season and if folk are subscribing just for that they will leave in their droves come December as they donít seem too quick at releasing originals.

One year in and one original.
