This makes sense because the programming between 9am and 1pm is also shown later in the day, but one has to ask - is this the beginning of the end for CBS Drama?

I imagine that it's lost a lot of viewers since UKTV made their drama channel available FTA.
IIRC CBS Drama shows mainly American imports and UK Drama mainly programming from the BBC.

It's not a good sign when a broadcaster puts one of its main channels behind its timeshifts in the pecking order. Of course, the timing of the frequent moves on Freeview may suggest that the broadcaster is chasing bargain basement rates and using short term contracts whenever cheap carriage deals are available.

Who would have thought that Talking Pictures would have the buying power to push one of the main broadcasters aside?

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

I thought that too.

Good to know that Talking Pictures will still be available after the reduction in Freeview capacity as, without Freeview exposure, it may not have been viable to keep it on VM & satellite only.

You do realise my comment was tongue in cheek?
In seriousness would be great if they got downloads on it for you guys, we haven't heard anything about downloads as of yet though.

Unless I'm completely misunderstanding, information about streaming and downloading recordings from V6 My Shows has been given - it's in Virgin TV Control.

No idea mate, but what i will say imo Virgin medias online offering is far superior to Skys pathetic Skygo offering which still uses the outdated and very unsecure silverlight so unless you put addons onto chrome or use a outdated version of firefox skygo will only work on the security flawed internet explorer.
At least Vms offering works on most modern browsers.

I wonder if VM will bother adding this as Radio Cymru 2 will only broadcast its own output for three hours a day, opting out from Radio Cymru with a music based breakfast show from 7-10am while the main station continues with its news based programmes.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Apparently, some (or all) of the UKTV channels are currently available in all packages (including HD) on VM.

I can't check this as i'm on Full House.
