Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great to see a new face getting involved in the Community.
All of our On Demand box sets are reviewed often to ensure we are making room for new content.
The Walking Dead expires today and will then be removed. Series 7 is the current series where we are loading episodes on a catch up basis. As a new one is added, a previous episode is removed. Usually there is 4 weeks worth there to watch unless there was a fault with previous episodes in which case they will stay a little longer.
The Walking Dead is certainly a popular series and I'm sure it will be back to view soon enough.
Apologies for any inconvenience.

So, in this case a new series is released and it generates a lot of attention from old and potential new fans.
This is then reviewed by Virgin Media, who decide that rather than allow potential new fans of the show to bring themselves up to speed on what has happened so far, it would be better to remove this content altogether and force anyone wanting to watch older episodes to go elsewhere.
I appreciate that all content is subject to review, but for a series of this magnitude, this decision is certainly one of the most baffling and ridiculous I have seen. There can't be much sound rationale for this.
But, fairly consistent with a provider that continually increases it's prices and tries to pass it off as being acceptable due to all the additional extras that will be offered. Laughable.
I have recently started watching the Walking Dead and only managed to get half way through series 3 to find the option for the rest has been removed with no warning. I called Virgin to be told there were technical issues and it should be back by 6pm Saturday 12.11.16. After reading some of the comments on here that would appear to be incorrect. Can someone explain why this was said and what the actual truth is?
