Well spotted!

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Apparently, all Motors TV feeds are now in HD.

I wonder what's happening with this channel on VM, they haven't even changed it to the new name, let alone started to broadcast it in HD. They must be downscaling an HD feed to put it out in SD

On Sky, the new owners failed to tell Sky that they were going HD, so it's looking like mid April after the compulsory off EPG tests are complete.

Perhaps they failed to tell VM too, so this is what's causing these problems??

Maybe the new owners aren't familiar with running TV channels and are just expected things to fall into place. I guess they are on a learning curve.

That's what I was thinking. You'd think that they'd have taken advice from the former owners or hired a consultant.

None of the satellite scanning sites are yet reporting an HD feed appearing on any of the Astra birds at 28E. There are 3 (encrypted) HD varients up on Eutelsat carrrying the service for mainland Europe, but they have been around since last year.

That's why I phrased this as "apparently" as someone said that this information (apparently!) is on their website, but when I had a quick look I couldn't see this.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Looks like a selection of E! programming will be on channel 100 from 6am to 01:23am on Sunday 26/3/17.

The programmes are Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Summer House, Revenge Body With Khloe Kardashian, The Real Housewives of Sydney and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Not sure which packs this will benefit.

If the multi award winning programming above didn't excite anybody, the Pop up Power Rangers channel returns on 30/3/17

This claim has now been removed from their website (although their trailer still claims they are in HD). Another indication to me that they don't know what they are doing.

Virgin Media UK has updated the EPG Banner on Channel 158.

It was called Fox+ but is now called Fox +1

What about Motors TV and Heart Extra?

---------- Post added at 18:37 ---------- Previous post was at 17:22 ----------

We have just found that Virgin Media UK are now broadcast logos on some BBC Radio Channels.

RE Channel 904 and Channel 930.
