Agreed I find myself only watching 3-4 shows a year from across all the BBC channels that's the beauty of choice. I record probably double that a year off Sky Atlantic not to mention Sky Living and Sky One so for me it's a must have clearly others disagree.

I think Virgin will be concentrating more on the 'on demand' side rather than channels now, mhatter.

Next year being only days away.

I'm sure it will be coming, but don't know when. Didn't someone say on one of these threads that Amazon's arrival on the Virgin platform had been delayed until the spring?

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

I wonder if Sky's refusal to allow Sky Atlantic onto other platforms may be contributing towards this story that Games of Thrones is the most pirated TV program of the year:

It's not a significant factor. Game of Thrones is popular globally. The population of the UK is just 64m of which half have access to Game of Thrones legally.
By contrast:
* The global population the world is 7.4bn
* China is 1.36bn
* India 1.25bn
* The EU 27 countries 440m
* USA is 319m
* Brazil 200m
* Russia 144m

It'll be a tiny factor Game of thrones is massive worldwide and many platforms don't carry the rights to it or some charge extorsion amounts for HBO (i'm looking at you Verizon and comcast).
UKs tv numbers are a tiny drop in the ocean.
Also don't forget many in the uk who don't have access to Sky Atlantic via their provider would also have nowtv which most of the UK has access too.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin Media TV (2017)

Has anybody got any information whether ITV Box office will be carried by Virgin Media at the end of January 2017. Reading this article it has already been tested on Sky. http://www.a516digital.com/2016/12/i...-2017.html?m=1

I don't think any announcements on platforms will be made until January as a lot of people will still be off work.

It is very likely that ITV Box Office will be available on Virgin Media. ITV have already stated that it will be 'widely available' and it would be very strange indeed if VM didn't carry this from the get go.
