The delivery method is pretty much irrelevant , the reason Sky and BT offer a linear service be that over satellite , cable or IP is because it gives the subcriber the feeling they are getting more for their money and used to showcase future events and attract advertisers.

Sky Two has become Sky Replay today, but VM haven't updated the EPG yet.

Bit pointless rebranding something that’s going to close down imminently, as the Netflix Nostradamus likes to remind us.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2020)

VM has also started to advertise that the MTV Play app is available on Virgin TV, so it must be launching soon.

It was announced on 7 October 2019 so they have certainly taken their time with that one!

Equally pointless is the annual re-branding of some of Sky's movie channels at Christmas.

Cost is obviously negligible

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2020)

I love the text on Travel Channel (Channel 289) right now.

"Travel is no longer available in the UK"

Why!!! Are we in lockdown again?

Media Boy EXCLUSIVE: Channel 160 to be called Sky Two on Virgin Media UK.

Virgin Media Sources has confirmed to Media Boy HQ today that "No date has been announced" on when Virgin Media will update the EPG on Channel 160 to say "Sky Replay".

So Sky Replay has launch on Channel 160 but it called Sky Two on Virgin Media.

Are you seriously claiming that VM not getting around to updating their EPG (which I posted about yesterday) is a 'Media Boy EXCLUSIVE'.

I better start including © Copyright 2020 SonicMaster on all of my posts!

I’m with SonicMaster on this MB

Hardly ground breaking stuff ‘EXCLUSIVE’ when a rebrand isn’t done on the EPG

It will prob change at the same time as Sky Sports Action changes to NFL or maybe even before

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2020)

Sky Sports NFL and Sky Sports NFL HD have replaced Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Action HD.

Virgin Media has used a black and white logo with a tiny NFL icon on the EPG, in a different style to all the other Sky Sports logos.

Sky Two is still yet to be updated to Sky Replay on the EPG.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2020)

On SkyQ the logo doesn't match the others - although the logo is the same as being used on-air.

SKY is blue and the background is transparent - other sports logos are white SKY in blue background. The result is the blue SKY is getting lost in the blue background for NFL.
