The administrators have put the brakes on the future of the channel

Hopefully it's a simple fix like that.

I'm guessing there will be no UHD on-demand films if I have to lower the resolution lol
I changed the display settings and the link worked. It was just a trailer to the new virgin media store, nothing special lol

News reports say that the channel has been pulled from the air, but it's still broadcasting.

I imagine that to keep their SD slot on Sky alive (as a valuable asset) the administrators will keep it going up until this is sold.

As a consequence, I guess this is why Bike are continuing to honour their contractual agreement with VM until the plug is pulled.

They can stay on air for little cost if they 'recycle' old programs.

They tried to find a buyer, but not for very long. You're right though, I suppose if someone put in an offer it could continue

That's what most channels in this position do, they show any old stuff that meets Skys requirements to keep the valuable SD slot alive.

Was "staying on air" a deliberate pun

PPV Slate HD has been rebranded PPV Slate. The ITV Box Office stream is offline. Hmm...
