Yes, it's annoying when that happens!

Never mind, I'm sure it will be repeated soon!

Content from Sony's childrens channels has been available on Virgin Media in On Demand / Catch Up for some time, but not in a dedicated app, just like ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 etc.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Anybody else find it odd that when Kix Power closed it did not become Kix? Considering it looked like we were getting Kix to begin with i find this quite odd that it just closed.

I'm quite willing to bet that Sony/CSC originally offered the full Kix channel (possibly a few others as well) to Virgin, but they refused because they were angered at Sony's asking price.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

So the Sky Cinema channels have swapped position but weirdly left the SD Premiere+1 in position 402 but put all the HD versions around it.

I hope that is an error they will correct as that is just stupid.

On SKY premier+1 is on 302 with premierhd being on 301, then the other cinema hd from 303 upwards.
So most likely not a error on vm part.

Probably not an error, HD viewers on Sky have a similar situation. Basically the HD channels have priority but there isn't a SD Premiere+1 HD available to get priority.

As it was added to a transport stream used for pop-up SD channels such as the BBC Olympics channels it wasn't altogether unexpected.

They are FTA channels and make their money from advertising. As they don't have any premium content to sell, they should be paying for carriage not asking for a payment.

Will this be another pop up channel or is it simply a temporary rename of an existing channel?

I'm surprised that they cut into a film to do this, I had assumed that it would simply be a case of renaming all the branding.

I think that it's better to have the option of a timeshift variant of the parent channel in SD than none at all when scrolling down in the HD section.

If possible, a duplicate entry in the SD section would be ideal.

True Crime have added the VM logo to their branding, so are presumably joining soon:
