Sky Sports Extra is for direct Sky customers only (not those buying Sky services through VM) based on everything I've read into it (topics here/VM Sky Sports page.)  Just like Sky Atlantic and ITV Encore, etc is for those with Sky STBs. Sky keep the most popular channels to their own direct customers.

 

VM's Sky Sports page http://store.virginmedia.com/digital-tv/channels/sky-sports.html

 

No mention of Sky Sports Extra: "Watch all the exhilarating sports broadcast on Sky Sports 1, Sky Sports 2, Sky Sports 3, Sky Sports 4, Sky Sports 5 and Sky Sports F1® with our great value Sky Sports Collection."
