Is your view based on the expiry date of the existing contract, theone? Are you sure there is not a re-negotiation going on? I would have thought that VM would be looking at getting as much UHD as possible following reports in the media and on review sites criticising the lack of UHD content on the platform.
VM can look but right now they can't have neither SKY nor BT want to make their UHD available anywhere else.
However.... keep a eye on Discovery networks and in particular Eurosport.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

I've recently discovered that Discovery now have an additional Freeview slot. Could this mean another new FTA channel is on the way. Or could the likes of Discovery History, Discovery Shed or Eurosport move to FTA transmission?

No news yet on what going to happen with that Freeview HD slot.

a516digital did report last week that Quest +2 was set to launch on August 2nd on Freeview HD box/TV Sets.

Also the name of "Quest2" did appear on the Ofcom web site late last week but was removed today (August 7th).
