Re: Channel 425 Not Free!

There is no requirement for all the 'free' TV offerings to have the same set of channels.

I'm sure Virgin Media Player TV has some channels not available on Freeview and FreeSat and vice versa.

Perhaps you ought to address this question at the channel owner, who has decided to make their channel a pay channel on Sky & Virgin in order to get revenue from them. Something I hasten to add, they are quite entitled to do as a commercial company.
