And apparently, their plans for "some exciting new content in the coming months" are subject to a DNP order.

Interestingly, it's not on Freeview either, having been removed from Manchester's MEN multiplex some time ago. But they still update the old Ofcom DTT DTPS licence with the temporary name. Very odd!

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Following on from Sky Sports and Sky Basic having been given an new look.

Last night saw Sky Cinema given an new look - logo now all red and white.

Sky plc has still to do Sky News.

Also the new 5 Spike logo has appeared on TiVo Boxes.

It shows how desperate we are when we talk about new logos instead of new channels or new content!

At least there's development on that front to look forward to.

I'm afraid that channel re-namings, logo changes, renumbering of channels and DNPs that no-one knows what they are and we rarely get to find out about until the change is actually delivered, all leaves me cold.
