Could it be included in a package? or is that wishful thinking lol
Excellent stumble,UC!

This is exactly the kind of thing Virgin should be organising. I do hope that there is a lot going on behind the scenes that will surprise us all later this year.

Ahh, just to clarify, pleasantly surprise us!

My TiVo is picking up a lot more from Blaze than the other Freeview channels that have been added.

What Freeview channels are we missing now? Apart from YourTV and Viceland are there any more? Isn't there a crime investigation channel?

Apparently, a few series from ITV Encore are available on the ITV Hub on satellite as box sets.

No idea if this is mirrored on VM or which programming is available, but those who want this channel on VM may wish to take a look

No it's part of their starter pack i think, i'm on sky box set pack so get all channels except movies/sports.

InsightHD is ftv though i think this is another channel vm are missing but this is only ftv on Sky platform as requires viewing card but no sub.

Yes, you will find some of the programmes aired by ITV Encore in the ITV Collections section of on demand. However, they were all repeats from the main ITV channel the last time I looked, but new stuff like The Americans, which is what we need, cannot be found there..

The Americans is available on Amazon Prime so no exclusivity on Sky.

Yes, the exclusivity relates to the channel (ITV Encore), not the programme.

Not much use then

For some reason ITV Encore isn't available on Sky in Ireland, but this VOD repeated material is. Sky Ireland viewers are in the same boat as VM customers in this respect.

Another rumour I'm not liking the sound of. National Geographic & NatGeoWild are both excellent at different genres.
