Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2010)

This is a continuation of the 'Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2009)' thread from last year, which you can find here:

http://www.cableforum.co.uk/board/11...tv-2009-a.html

1. The old thread has been closed, but will remain for information purposes;
2.
Media Boy will collate all the information from his various sources and provide it to me once a week, indicating any changed items in bold text;
3. I will update the initial post to show the changes/amendments.

In addition to that
Media Boy will be on hand to answer any questions that arise and to provide links to other sources of information as they come up.

In order to make the most of this new thread, you are asked to stick as strictly as possible to the topic at hand which is specifically the discussion of those items that Media Boy highlights as 'Coming Soon'. If you wish to discuss the legislative issues, technological issues, or any other wider issue, arising from the discussion of what's coming soon, please start a new thread to do so.

Thank you

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2010)

ITV HD was exclusive to Freesat as ITV were one of the backers of that service. Not sure on the status of that contract but it isn't even on Sky HD yet either

True - although Sky HD viewers can manually add ITV1 HD but no EPG entry. ITV1 HD will also be appearing on Freeview HD (soft launch Dec 2009) with first boxes due in a few monmths.

Howie and Happy New year, Love MEDIA BOY's new logo btw!!

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2010)

I just want more HD content, especially after spending £900 on a 46in plasma and VM only having 6 dedicated HD channels. I can't be the only one in this position!
