Forgot about that - due to them being popup channels I do not have them listed on my Blog Changelog.

Any customer who has performed any package change or joined BT after they linked up with Now TV will have the new EPG.

CNN still lists in the VM EPG - but listing in the EPG doesn't mean it is active.
According to a tweet from BT, it has just been removed.

Funny that, I was told this morning that the dummy transport stream names had gone for transport streams 512 & 515 and that the Eurosport olympics channels had moved from their original sid numbers.

The other changes seem to be the start of transport stream 27 & 28 services moving to 512 and 515. The rest will probably follow over the next few days, then maybe 512 and 515 will get dummy transport stream names. You missed Alibi HD, that one moved from 2803 to 1503. Once again the digitalbitrate monitor is down when changes are happening.

Surely they ain't going SD that would be a shame as it is the only MTV channel I regularly watch due to the poor PQ on the others and of course no ad breaks.

Might just be a simple legal name change, hope so.

They probably just realised at this point in time having HD in the channel name is rather pointless if there is only one version available, and it doesn't trip off the tongue.

Isn't that prescribed as part of a high fibre diet?

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2021)

From this morning's info: Yes, Utsav Plus HD was included in yesterday's batch of changes. COLORS HD should have already moved at the same time as TCM HD.

SYFY HD, Comedy Central HD, 4SevenHD, BBC NEWS HD and BT Sport 1 HD are already running as duplicates with SID 15XX numbers, so are ready for the next set of changes.

The channels moved last night are also running as duplicates in their old locations but should be removed shortly.

The new unknown channel you mentioned is "TS27 Dummy" which just means TS27 has been cleared of active channels. The removals you noticed yesterday were "Dummy 1209" and "TS15 Dummy", removed because active channels have returned to these transport streams.

Thanks for update

I feel the final movers will move to SID 15XX tonight after midnight.

Do people have to re-add series links too when channels move SID's?
