They are connected to the Glasgow headend, so get whatever Glasgow gets.

And tv/sports companies/organisations wonder why people are seeking alternative methods.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

I emailed Made In Teesside yesterday about locally produced programme's and the reply I got was that it was very a soft launch and would build up local content. He also said he had had very little inquiries from local programme makers which is disappointing. He went on to say "do not give up on us as we will evolve". I hope he's right as the only reason I will tune in is to see programmes about my local area!

Thanks SP, pretty much as I thought (that it would get the same services as the headend to which it is connected). On that point, which headend serves Morecambe and Lancaster? Are they connected to Carlisle or maybe Preston?

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Greetings friends. Will we ever see anything coming soon to virgin media again?

I remember the glorious summer of 2011 (?) when this board lit up with the sudden arrival of the BT sport channels. It was the best of days.

Now in 2017....nothing ever comes.

Wheres my fox news? Wheres my sky atlantic? Virgin media get these two channels and then potentially we can close these forums down as we have triumphed.

The trouble with you Vince is you have been having champagne and caviar for the last 10 years but alas most of us are now have got used to the bread and dripping since those golden years.

No news on if anything will happen in Summer 2017.

But with Sky Sports Box Office HD set to launch on Saturday it look to MB HQ that Virgin Media has sign an new deal with Sky UK so we see more Sky Basic channels coming in the coming months.

But saying that they did sign an 5 year deal in 2014.

---------- Post added at 14:17 ---------- Previous post was at 13:57 ----------

Box Plus: Box Plus Channels may close on Virgin Media on May 1st.

https://tvforum.uk/tvhome/box-plus-n...n-media-42621/

Story from yesterday we just found it today. We are working to see what is going on.
