They have moved from showing similar content at different times to, pretty much, simulcasting the same content as the date for the merger approaches. One point to note though, Sony Movies has been a "Highway To Heaven" free zone. Fear not though, after the merger, Highway To Heaven is scheduled to appear on the Sony Movie Channel... oh joy!

It seems Virgin are only offering a watered down version of Sky Cinema.

When i was with VM you needed the XL pack to get HD you still got bbchd, itvhd, 4hd and 5hd in all packs but for all other HD channels (except sky movies and sport) you needed to be on xl pack sky movies hd and skt sports hd were a extra £7.50p/m regardless of what pack you're on.
VM used to preach that their HD was free but in reality they hid it in the cost of XL.
Not sure if it is still the same now.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

evening all.

when was the sky movies hd charge dropped? absolute joke that a "hd charge" even exists in 2017 for anything. It literally is the most blatant money grabbing charge ever with literally no defence. I remember when we moved from analogue to digital and we had the "digital charge" oh wait we didnt. in a world where most people have hd tv's now charging extra for sky sports hd is a joke. I refuse to as im not that bothered by SD. But a lot of people do which is why sky keep the gravy train going.

Happy new year you wonderful people btw.

This will be the year we get AMC, sky atlantic, no price rises, free amazon tv for everyone on xl package. I joke of course but lets dream big and then all be eternally disappointed in december again as we vote for best channel launch of the year and are greeted with a series of +1 channels or "made in liverpool" or something.

Lets live the dream
