Where did Watch go?

I put up with the awesomely slow TIVO just so I can watch one programme, Masterchef Australia. Today I find that 'Watc'h has been removed from the basic package. I was watching this last year on the basic package.

What gives?

 

Also is there anything I can do to speed this crap box up a bit, its like watching paint dry

Re: Where did Watch go?

Watch is now called W, SD is on channel 125 on Mix but the HD version looks to be only on Full House (see the link below)

Might you have your SL+ set to the HD channel?

Might you have your SL+ set to the HD channel or All Channels and Record in HD = Always?

Re: Where did Watch go?

Watch got renamed as W however checking this page:

http://www.virginmedia.com/shop/tv/channels.html

it seems that the channel is only available on the Mix TV package (and higher). I assume the basic package you refer to is now called Player TV and as you have surmised is not in this package.

Re: Where did Watch go?

As far as I can tell the basic package is little more than Free View, so can anyone explain what I am actually paying for?

Virgin sent me an email after a recent change which is the new contract asking me to acknowledge. I have not done so, I assume therefore I am in a position to argue here?

Basically I am paying for freeview, only its pixilated and the box is dog slow. I am being mugged.
