I can imagine freeview getting some sort of UHD before virgin media. They will start losing customers

I would imagine UHD will be mainly on demand rather than on conventional broadcast channels initially and you may not get a lot of notice about content.

As of today still broadcasting on Virgin Media UK.

But we are keeping on eye on them.

Other news - We have seen unconfirmed rumours that both Hum Masala will launch on Virgin Media UK on August 14th and Star Life OK will be replaced by Star Bharat on August 15th.

Freesat maybe, Freeview no. With the bandwidth required & the amount of spectrum about to be lost to 5G rollout HD is likely to be the limit for DTT.

Yes, I heard the other week that Hum Masala was joining at some point. Didn't bother posting it as theone2k10 posted that a new cookery channel was coming.

Was your info about a different service theone2k10?

Yes, maybe JJ20X will be able to see on a scan.

Wasn't Hum Masala testing some time ago before being removed?

Looks like VM Ireland are aiming for channel parity with the UK.

Are there still any channels that they have that we don't?

Assuming I get to see the scan data, which isn't guaranteed. Scan data is generally available at the start of the month and mid-month. Exact timings in the summer months are unpredictable, working around when the people doing the scans take their holidays.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

a516Digital: FreeSports launch on Virgin Media UK "being worked on".

Quote:
FreeSports got the regulatory green light with licences from Ofcom covering terrestrial, cable and satellite distribution. It also received a Freeview slot and is currently assigned channel 95.

It now appears that the channel is planning to appear on every major TV platform in the UK...

Virgin Media channel details are still unknown, but are being worked on.
