Channels We Would Like to See on Virgin Media

Now obviously we have no control over the deals reached between Virgin Media and broadcasters but I thought it would be fun to see what channels people would like to see appear on Virgin Media in the future. This is only a general topic so please don't take it too seriously.

I would like to see the following:

  • Universal HD
  • CNN International HD
  • Your TV
  • Spike TV

Re: Channels We Would Like to See on Virgin Media

I'd like to see AMC UK and Sky Atlantic on Virgin Media, neither of which is going to happen anytime soon. Also like to see all of the True channels.

I watched some of Spike on my freesat box before it broke... and it was rubbish.

Sky Atlantic

Sky Atlantic

and..

erm..

Sky Atlantic

I know it aint going to happen as it is the major differential between Sky and everyone else as that's where nearly all the best programmes go.

Of these Universal HD is the most likely to appear. Spike will probably not turn up until the deal with Viacom is renewed. CNNI HD has very restricted coverage in Europe, with only the Turksat 4 & Badr 5 (Middle East) satellites currently carrying the service. Until a European satellite joins distribution we will not see it on any TV platform.

Re: Channels We Would Like to See on Virgin Media

We may see movement on CNN HD front with the news that it currently test broadcasting unencripted on satellite at the moment for UK viewers so It all depends on any contractual and carriage agreements I suppose.

Re: Channels We Would Like to See on Virgin Media

CNN HD tests on satellite have been and now gone - finished a few days ago.

We have Sky here too and Sky Atlantic would be top of my list  - if I was asked which Sky channel can we remove as you have to lose one.
