Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

I stand corrected about M+.

I've just looked the June's channel guide PDF and it's just Player and More that don't get it

It is also in Sky's interest to wholesale the channel as well.

It is indeed sir.
No doubt someone will say "never happen" even though we're not talking about that certain channel

I'm just in a daft mood tonight.

Whatever happened to the Weather Channel? Used to give local weather, always wrong, but the music was nice. I'd take that over anything Sky have to offer.

The service on Sky analogue closed down as it wasn't profitable, not sure about cable as I didn't have it in the nineties.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Yes, l do have disagreements on this forum concerning VM. And my disappointment with VM.

I was with cablke since Cable Corporation days. I was told a pack a lies by the sales rep, and went in for the service. We got rid of a extremely poor service after two weeks.

We went over to Sky for the next few years, and didn't have ANY problems- apart from the weather. My wife went over to Telewest, and stayed with BOTH services for the next couple of years. I then got made redundant. VM agreed to give us SIX months FREE. Sky would not, so Sky went.

VM came along, and we we stayed with them. But my god the service was terrible, fault after fault, lie after lie from there customer services.

So l persuaded my wife to go over the Sky, this was twelve months ago. We kept VM for the basic channels, and BT Sports. as we got a deal from VM.

Sky deal is up in July. So we compared the past TWELVE months. My family and l have had problems with VM. My mother in law has had terrible problems with VM. Three engineers, and an a letter to CEO and problems we had. With Sky, NO PROBLEMS

There are not enough channels on VM and there is still arguments with VM about SA - who have offered deals to VM, but they wont accept these deals - at the end of the day, we will end up paying anyway.

So what is my deal. We will stay with Sky, but keep VM as it is.

I will pay with my feet, And until VM buck up there ideas, l feel that VM will lose customers. As they are just second rate business company. Yes, they have to make there profits. But at the end of the day. Its WE the customer that ends up paying the bill.

And the reason why Talking Pictures is on VM. Is because its a FREE CHANNEL. This is the only channels will get onto vm.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Meanwhile.. back on the subject of "coming soon"

Blaze is currently operating off the EPG on Virgin Media with video / audio streams present across the national network. NIT tables indicate that active tests are taking place on 6 internal networks used to test new services. Indications are that Blaze was added at some point during May 30th. (Transport Stream 7 - SID 702.)

Zee Punjabi is on the move again - this time from Transport Stream 15 (SID 1519) to Transport Stream 20 (SID 2015).

Eagle eyed readers may possibly remember that Transport Stream 20 (SID 2015) was previously used for Fox News Channel "tests". All traces of Fox News Channel have now been removed. Sorry Vince, it just wasn't meant to be.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Further news:

Islam Channel Urdu (Transport Stream 9 - SID 904) and
Islam Channel English (Transport Stream 19 - SID 1907)
are currently operating off the EPG on Virgin Media with video / audio streams present across the national network. NIT tables indicate that active tests for are taking place on 4 internal networks for each service. Indications are that these services were added on May 26th.

Possibly not the channels most people on this thread were waiting for but it is what it is...

That's a shame, I certainly remember the Weather Channel on cable, it must have been the nineties.
I sense a gap in the market. All I need is some seaweed, a pair of binoculars, barometer, OB camera and a satellite dish to upload my channel.... If I could get the local wine merchant to sponsor it would be the perfect channel, for me anyway
