Radio on Virgin

Hello,

 

I'd just like to ask if you could change a few things on the Radio side of things

 

  • Change it so 'smooth fm' it is 'Smooth Radio' It hasn't been Smooth FM since 2007
  • Make it so like BBC the stations are organised by who owns it so like: BBC, Global, Bauer etc.
  • It shows a logo added by the radio station so if you had Radio 1 on it would have a logo and you can turn the logo off by pressing the red button for example.

Thank you.

Re: Radio on Virgin

The allocation of channel numbers to radio stations, just like with TV channels, is part of the agreement with the channel owner. For instance, Capital appears on channel 958 as it matches their London FM frequency.

 

Logos & on screen content is another matter, as Virgin has different firmware for different boxes. With the TiVO boxes, again the onus is on the channel owner to develop anything that is visible on their channels, & to be quite honest with you, most of them will not part with the money to develop specific content for each digital platform. The legacy boxes are already operating at the limits of the installed firmware, & any more "tweaking" usually causes no end of problems for us customers, so is well left alone.

Re: Radio on Virgin

What about the rename of 'smooth fm' to Smooth Radio this didn't cause problems with the actual station changing 7 years ago it plays jingles of Smooth Radio and things
