Motors TV

What has happened with Motors TV? Is Virgin still going to be showing this channel?

Re: Motors TV

So don't expect any official announcement or update from VM.

"Technical Difficulties" card is the best they can do !!

Re: Motors TV

The channel's French service is, for the time being, still in operation but the Astra satellite feed that supplies Sky & Virgin customers has been suspended.

Re: Motors TV

It's a shame it's gone but, to be honest, all their footage looked like it had been filmed on a 15 year old camera phone. If they had broadcast even in SD it would have been much more watchable.

Re: Motors TV

What that report doesn't say is that Motors TV actually went into receivership (in France) 5 weeks ago. They managed to keep the feed going in case re-financing was successful.

Of course you have to get such news from satellite and cable news pages, certainly not on My Virgin Media or this forum's admin.

Re: Motors TV

Yes. VM (don't know which dept) told me via a Twitter !!

Why don't they use their own new dissemination methods like My Virgin Media or this forum?
