With dvd/blu ray you know it's yours forever.
What baffles me is why SKY still do not offer blu ray on the sky store let's be honest the prices they charge for new releases 13.99 you can get much cheaper from places like Amazon, hmv on blu ray which most include a digital copy to to use on ultraviolet which many companies support.
My theory is VM will break that mould and will offer blu ray as well as dvd, maybe they'll use someone like HMV.
If I decide to watch a movie, then I watch it there and then. I would never watch it twice, there is always plenty of new material on which I can feast my eyes and ears!

For those who like to watch the same things over and over, I can see how this might be an issue for them, though.

Why bother ?

With a restart option already on each Movie Channel.

I'm normally the same i watch a movie once and that's it, but sometimes i buy the dvd or blu ray too for the extras and it's handy to have something to watch if my network goes la la.

Given their poor PQ and lack of 5.1, I wouldn't buy from them anyway.

And when you can pick up many second hand movies and TV box sets for just over a quid, including postage, DVDs can be a great bargain.

Probably something that Sky wanted from the start but with VM only agreeing to give the HD channels priority since Sky dropped the supplementary HD fee.

Very true, i've seen dvds from as little as 20p in CEX and our local cash generators are currently doing dvds at 15 for 10 and there are some latest releases in there too.

It's on the top of the page but if you scroll down it's not on the second collection of logos. It's also the Virgin logo and not the Virgin Media logo which is rather strange.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

... it's about half way down the page under the very large True Crime lettering, not at the top or bottom of the page.

It's behind you!

Try viewing it on your mobile phone - there's a red bar half-way across the screen containing the logos in white.

We has seen rumours on this thread about Sky Channels.
