Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2021)

Not sure if that applies to 360 either, or if it's just a TiVo / V6 thing.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2021)

Probably and if they do there should be another new service TS28 Dummy or whatever Virgin call it.

TS11 is empty again, so some services may be moving onto that eventually. Unless Virgin keep it for pop-up channels.

I feel 24XX and 25XX may move to 11XX as both as about 5 HD Channels on them.

I feel 16XX may move to left over slots on 12XX, 15XX, 18XX, 23XX and 26XX as all have got about 8 HD Channels on them.

I feel 23XX may then move 16XX.

I feel Virgin may keep 18XX open for any left over plus room for any new HD launches on Virgin Media.

All information base on DBR info.

There were rumours a few months ago that TS25-30 would be wound down. Since then 29 & 30 are no longer being used and now 27 & 28 are being cleared. I would expect 25 & 26 to be next. No time scale was mentioned, so it could take a while.

My idea would only take Virgin Media up to 9 nights - aka 3 weeks.

The method they are using seems to be moving around 6 channels a night, so clearing TS25-6 (14 channels) could be done in around 3 nights. Those are the transport streams they have moved to frequencies next to other cleared transport streams.

But my reference to time scales was to allow for any new encoders to be ordered (if necessary) or just to fit in to Virgin's overall development plan for the TV service.

Dude, you really need to find a new hobby, you must have some amount of ‘favourite channels’ on your box too

Wasn't that the name VM used for their fitness channel before launch? Or something similar?

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2021)

MTV Pride will also be shown on Virgin Media Showcase HD (Virgin Channel 100) from Saturday at 6am to Monday at 6am.

So maybe TuneAway HD Hidden will become MTV Pride.

As far as I can see, there is no need to make any alteration to either profile My Channels or Series Records on TV 360.
