Love Quickview, only way to get through 'Cleopatra (1963)' - 251 minutes otherwise!

Exactly! It's the main reason i'm still with Virgin. When the V6 is retired there won't be anything compelling enough to make me want to stay.

NBC News Now closes on satellite on the 21st. If it's not viable to continue on satellite I can't see it continuing on Virgin as it's more expensive and has a smaller customer base.

NBC News Now seems to be using Sky News content as a sustaining service out of normal hours. I wonder if this is the start of both services carrying content from the other service to boost overnight content. In which case it could be confusing to carry both channels.

Only the satellite channel is closing. It will remain available on Sky Glass & Sky Stream.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2023)

Sorry if this has already been covered, but I've not been keeping up with changes at VM.

For the V6 and 360 TV customers are there now only two packs of entertainment channels available - the one that's pretty much Freeview, and the one with all the pay channels?

There is now Mix and Mega.

You can still add some options onto Mix e.g. Children's channels and TNT etc, but the other Personal Picks have been withdrawn.

But more channels have been added to Mix that when it first launched.

The 360 channel guide shows the Mixit, Maxit and Mega TV tiers for an easier comparison.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2023)

DBR is reporting that Virgin are testing a FAST Channel called "Love Christmas".

Thanks Ben, and to others for sharing links.

All of these different legacy tiers and the current ones make it quite confusing: Player, Mix, Full House, Mixit, Maxit, Mega TV 😂

I'm kind of glad there are now only two being sold, but the site could be clearer.
