Oops my mistake on that link..

The group added 160,000 new customers in the quarter, a 51 per cent jump, and recorded 9.6m pay-as-you-go sports and entertainment buys, an increase of 12 per cent.

"We've had a strong start to our new financial year with good revenue growth and excellent profit growth as investments we've made come through," said group chief executive Jeremy Darroch.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Together TV is a new channel from the Community Channel, planned to launch on VM, Sky, Freeview and Freesat early in 2018. Apparently, it's still a secret, so shhh! don't tell anyone.

Maybe this explains the shenanigans that took place earlier in the year??

Not sure what happened to their Freeview slot showing (A&E?) material.

Sorry, never saw that.

Does anyone know if UKTV will be making their channels available to all subscribers over Christmas like they have done in the past?

Virgin Media Ireland customers have been told that there will be a €5 increase in January 2018.

Still showing A&E material between 4am and 6am. Not sure what the audience reach is at that time, it seems to just be an EPG placeholder.

It sounds "niche", I can't say it's something I will be watching. Details are a bit vague at the moment. I'm wondering if this will actually replace the existing "Community Channel".

Be interesting to see who sponsors the channel (if anyone!). Sky are really feeling the pinch now.
Sky are just copying Discovery.

All Discovery, Quest and Eurosport channels are sponsors by Virgin Media as of Thursday night.

---------- Post added at 12:39 ---------- Previous post was at 12:36 ----------

We have seen rumours that Sky Two is set to be brand Sky Replay (Date TBC) as we know that Sky Two now rebroadcast Sky Living shows as well as Sky One.

Unlike the other Audio Description channels, this one is on TSID 102, a regional transport stream, suggesting that it will only be made available on a regional basis. Until it appears in the NIT, it is impossible to say which regions.

It is currently listed as being on EPG channel 853, has the EPG "Entertainment" flag and is flagged as "hidden".
Thanks for info

Is the unknown 16 channels still there?

Still there but with no progress noted on the last available scan data.

Test V1 is testing on the NGRHEE Bromley, TTA Bromley DMC (Bromley RHE), TTA Knowsley DMC (Hayes_RHE) & Code Download Test (Portsmouth) networks. The rest still being SDT only.

Actually channels have had sponsorship long before Discovery as did buses and trains so who is copying who?
And if you see how silly my comment was you'll understand the silliness of your "Sky are just copying Discovery" comment.

Test V1, being in the NIT tables of various VM networks used for testing is, presumably, testing something. Until the streams associated with the tests are added across the national network it's impossible to say precisely what is being tested.

The other test services and STV AD are SDT only, which suggests that the data has been added to prepare for new services but that testing hasn't yet started. The bulk of the "Test" services have been SDT only for over a month, suggesting that there is no urgency to the tests. That said, actual tests could start at any moment, it's just a case of wait and see what develops.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

What pack is motorsport.tv in (formerly Motors TV)?

It's going FTA and joining Freesat, so should really be moved to M/Player (or as VM seem to be doing these days M+/Mix).

It looks like more shenanigans to be honest. I've seen more details of this and it appears that Together TV will be "launching" on Jan 16th on VM channel 269, which is the existing slot for Community Channel. It also describes Together TV as "the latest incarnation of Community Channel". So, basically, just another rebrand dressed up as a channel launch.

The pack it is in on VM is more to do with the carriage terms agreed between VM and the broadcaster than FTA availability on other platforms.

Just to clarify, and further to MB's post, it is included in the Mix, M+, Fun & Full House packs on VM.
