Based on that logic, why bother with +1 in SD either? Presumably Sky see value in providing the channel.

The SD channel was already there , what is the point of launching a +1 in HD when customers already have the option of +1 in SD , restart in HD via On Demand or record next showing in HD using their PVR.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

I wonder if this new product just introduced by sister company UPC Slovakia will come to VM in 2017? "Subscribers can also opt for a super Wi-Fi modem that covers their entire house." http://www.broadbandtvnews.com/2017/...vak-service-3/

Just been looking on the UPC site and it's the same modem as the Superhub 3. Not just appearance, model number is the same.

That's because you are on VM you need to be on the Sky platform.

You should still have the Premieres available in HD via On Demand surely ?

Not all films are available on demand in hd, Star Wars episode 7 and the Martian and the selection on demand in hd is very poor

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Sony Channel replaces Moviemix on Tuesday next week. I see that the films on the Sony Channel include Predator, Preditor 2, Switchback and The Longest Yard, all of which were being shown on Moviemax just a few days before launch. So much for the hype, then!

Predator: 7.8 on IMDB
Predator 2 6.2 on IMDB
Switchback 6.4 on IMDB
The Longest Yard 6.4 on IMDB

Not terrible films by any stretch of the imagination though and it is an FTA channel.

I agree, but my point was that it's indistinguishable from Moviemax.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

I'd be happier if VM got the Talking Pictures film channel. Available on freeview/sky/freesat, not VM for some reason.Some really good rarely seen British films on it. I can get it via freeview, however would be nicer to record on Tivo. Radio Times are always recommending films on it.

That's not correct. Sony Channel continues as normal. Sony Movie Channel merges with Movie Mix.

The refreshed Sony Movie Channel will launch with 14 channel premieres in its first month including Godzilla, Twilight, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Maid In Manhattan, The Mask of Zorro and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
