Re: Insight HD to close.

With a bit of luck, the Insight UHD streaming service will replace it, both on Sky and Virgin.

Sadly, I have not seen any announcement or even speculation about that, so I won't hold my breath.

Re: Insight HD to close.

Here is some information on Insight. I think it would be good to have this additional 4K streaming service, particularly having regard to the lack of UHD programming available at present.

I would be surprised if Virgin were not looking at this.

Re: Insight HD to close.

We're talking about availability on Sky as a linear channel.

Re: Insight HD to close.

Never heard of it, and looking at the website, I can see only one programme that *might* be interesting to me, so I'm just thinking "meh" and mentally shrugging.

Why what's the point if nobody watches it.

It's not a well known channel and it's on a high number in the guide, so most people wouldn't think to go there.

This is the link I thought I'd posted earlier - sorry.
