Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

The script for the next episode of GOT (and other HBO shows) has been stolen by hackers.

Wonder if it's a disgruntled VM customer and the ransom includes an order to get SA onto VM!

The point I was making, Den, was that it was pretty pointless to tell us that DNPs had been issued if that was all the information. A few little clues help us to contemplate something coming that's really good or dismiss as more of a tweak likely to have little or no impact.

We now know that there will be one or more new channels, we can deduce that there will be streaming services in the mix and that some of the changes could be significant.

That's more than we knew before and MB hasn't given away any confidences.

So do you still think mine was not a worthwhile post?

Your posts are always worthwhile OB but you must understand we all have differing viewpoints and opinions whether they are right or wrong.

So you'd rather be kept in the dark about MB's DNPs?

You must be able to tell us something without spilling the beans, surely?
Sky Atlantic?
ITV Encore?
Amazon Prime?
UHD channel?

That's unusually speculative and optimistic for you, Andrew!

You might say these things, but I couldn't possibly comment.

Out of this lot, I would say the last two were most likely, although my guess is that UHD will arrive initially as an on demand channel.

I think that recording in UHD would use a ridiculous amount of space on my hard drive, so on demand/streaming is definitely preferred in this house!
