Some might think this isn't an issue but if I watch it then delete it when not knowing he wanted to watch it too there is no option to recover the show.

This is one of many issues and am going to fight to get my 2 tivos back if I can.
You do have the option to create profiles and a watchlist, which will enable you to track how much you've seen on one box and how much on the other, having set up your profiles. You can also delete a watchlist on one box without it affecting another.

Universal Channel did become Sky Comedy in 2020.

Here is a latest I have been given by my sources on E! and Movies 24 on what may happen to them.

*My sources says Sky is still on "borderline" on what to do with Movies 24.
*My sources say E! is set to be revamped.

Information was right at time of posting.
Can't see our version of E! lasting much longer. After closing the channel in other countries at the end of this year, I think it will close rather than be revamped in the UK too.

Due to W, Dave, Ailbi and Eden SD Channels being axe from Virgin on June 30th 2022.

But Astra UK viewers cant watch Eden in HD.
