Removal of CBS Reality

Why has CBS Reality disappeared from TV M package? It is a free view channel and Virgin want to charge an extra £20 per month to upgrade to get it back! Not happy!

Re: Removal of CBS Reality

Unfortunately it is the broadcasters that mainly dictate things. If they want the share of the pot of a subscription then they will join that. Some channels remain free for a few months to get people interested, then move up a grade.

The current channel guide as of december, shows that cbs reality and cbs reality plus one should be available for the more, m plus, mix, fun and full house package.

It was never on your package in the first place. It was a free promotion by the channel owner, which has now expired. Broadcasters occasionally do this to promote their services to those on other packs, & the channel owner actually makes a loss by doing this.

It may be a free channel on other platforms, but Virgin is a pay platform & if channel owners want to profit share on one of the higher packs, that is a commercial decision by them & not the platform provider.

Re: Removal of CBS Reality

It's a disgrace, and it was not a promotion at all. CBS Reality is free to view on every other platform and always has been. The move to charge is wholly down to Virgin, I have checked this with CBS.
