With any channel joining a platform, it all comes down to costs. Irish TV is Free-to-Air on satellite, so you can receive the channel with any satellite receiver (Sky, Freesat or any FTA model available in Europe) & the channel only pays the satellite operator (SES in Belguim). Joining Virgin would therefore increase the channels costs, & possibly Virgins costs as well.
