What's of interest to one person isn't always of interest to others as I'm sure you'll appreciate. If Made In Teesside shows any nostalgia programs of the Teesside area I'd be keen to watch. I'll certainly let you know OK.

To be fair, that looks like a reasonable schedule. Puts London Live to shame.

My local theatre still does local advertising during the break. A white screen comes down and local ads are shown from the local shops and business'. Even the bigger shops like Tescos advertise what special deals are going on at the local branch.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Can I ask if STV2 has launch on Virgin Media in Aberdeen, Ayrshire and Dundee?

Virgin has still to update the EPG banner for STV Glasgow.

I think the competition from BT Sport is forcing Sky Sports to be less exclusive with its HD events, which can be no bad thing.

I'm so glad I'm not a boxing fan as the cost of seeing these events are very expensive. If you're a subscriber to sky sports then it works out extremely expensive (sky sports sub's plus box office fee) .

Someone else was suggesting that a few posts back. I wonder who that might have been?

Another forum member has said "There were some issues on Virgin Media which resulted in some people still seeing the STV2 launch promo after 5pm in the Edinburgh region. I reckon it was their EPG not updating for the new channel, since there are some complaints about people in Aberdeen, Dundee and Ayrshire not getting the channel at all.

They are likely broadcasting on the old STV Edinburgh for a couple days as a result of this. The original intention seemed to be that the old channel would no longer be needed after 5pm."

Last I heard about Aberdeen, Ayrshire and Dundee was that all future launches had been cancelled as they would now be served by STV2.

I would say it is somewhat unlikely to have launched on VM in Aberdeen, I guess (for this thread at least) that launch can be written down as coming soon, but until VM actually extends the network to Aberdeen, they are unlikely to see a launch of STV2 on Virgin Media there.

I'm not sure how the ex Smallworld coverage areas of Ayrshire are fed. Are they still fed from Carlisle or has the feed switched to Uddingston or elsewhere since the takeover? Either way, I'm not sure how (or why) VM would feed a unique channel to a relatively small area, maybe this will have to wait for any additional premises being added under Project Lightning.

Although the people in Aberdeen are also complaining about not getting several other channels on VM.

Still a big rip off at those type of prices.
