Re: SPIKE (TV CHANNEL)

Just because channels are free to the customer does not make them free to the broadcaster. There is a cost involved with every platform they join. Virgin has the smallest "free" (TV M is not actually free, as you have to take a landline as well) audiance, & Virgins costs are higher as they operate their own network & boxes.

Re: SPIKE (TV CHANNEL)

It has been discussed here before, and Virgin are trying to get it.


Luckily, I can watch it on Freeview. (As it gets a lot of the boxing that I watch.)

 

Seems silly that Virgin are expecting us to pay more money per month, but still can't get this channel.  But I just turn my Virgin box off and watch it on Freeview.
